As was feared – the game tomorrow (Sunday, February 15) versus WEMBDON has fallen foul of the rain that saw the 1st team against Slimbridge called off. It has at first been thought there might be a change over 24-hours but, by late Saturday afternoon it was clear that the waterlogged Silver Street surface would simply not take action of any kind for at least 72 hours!

Steve Birley says: “It’s terribly frustrating, especially as programme and food etc has been brought, but there’s lots of the season left and to play on the pitch in its current conditions woudl certainly do it lots of damage – indeed it may put it out action from some time. On a personal note, with a hip operation forthcoming it means I may not get the chance to see us play Wembdon again and that would be mighty disappointing.”
