Club Captain Chris Smith and ground liason Rob Noble have has spent a considerable amount of time wading around the Home Park this morning with the groundsman and we have decided to cancel all our games at Home Park for this coming weekend. This is a decision that has not been taken lightly but the forecast continues to remain desperate and we are looking at the bigger picture for the pitches for the rest of the season.
They gather that the river is right up to its banks which could spill over with much more rain which means that the flood plain level is high and therefore not able to take much more without flooding. They also understand that some of the Horse Show events are also in serious danger of being cancelled.
Due to waterlogging, this evening’s training has also been cancelled although Thursday’s session is still being considered.
Please note that the first league games of the season are scheduled for the week after so can you let a member of the selection committee please know your availability for then.
