Just looked , 3 behind a few teams ,  moist weather on its way . wouldn't  be surprised  if the number increases . Happens every year , someone somewhere will be bleating about fixture  congestion due to postponed matches.  

Before some of these teams get into the conference  , are the pitches  checked for the suitability and sustainability  . If the stands have to come to a certain standard why not the pitch , eg   Gateshead .

York is roughly midway to Gateshead.  Snow here overnight and it is snowing now (Wed AM).  It is turning to slush and a gritter just went by.  It does not look promising.

Am guessing costs etc would be the problem imp


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

If they've done things properly and had covers on the pitch since Monday then it shouldn't be a problem. The snow will insulate the pitch and protect it from freezing. The forecast says 2 degrees most of the day and black cloud so if they actually did things properly we could have a game.

Won't happen though.

I was told that Gateshead do not have their own groundsman, it is Gateshead councils responsibility for the pitch as they run the stadium. If this is true it explains why the have so many game postponed.



If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

What annoys me about this is the money Gateshead save on ground maintenance can be spent on players wages.
That gives then an unfair advantage over clubs like ours, we take pride in our pitch, and the team at BP do a great job.
It would be interesting to see what the budget for pitch maintenance is for both clubs.

Let's hope when the game is eventually played we repay them with a smashing like we did earlier in the season.

It is getting beyond a joke now though especially when it is interfering with our games in the league, the game against  Nuneaton should take place has Gateshead have had chances to get the pitch sorted and have failed.

I am starting to dislike Gateshead!  


Grimsby and proud!
