Pitch is fit for play but rain forecastAfter strenuous efforts for most of the day by a team of about 20 volunteers, club officials believe that the pitch, although very wet, is currently fit for play.
However, heavy rain is forecast for Saturday morning. No formal inspection has been arranged for the morning but club officials will be at the stadium very early to assess how well the pitch has drained overnight and to review the latest forecast. If they feel it necessary, they will call in the match referee who can get to the ground within half an hour. A volunteer team is standing by to carry on their work from today and everything possible is being done to make sure the game can go ahead.
Please do not call the club for more information - the latest news will appear on this site as soon as it is known.
