Re: Another wasted trip to London...
Apologies for the late response to this - only just had a chance to speak to the relevant person who was at the inspection on Saturday morning.
When the inspection took place, there was quite a lot of standing water on the pitch, and in other areas, as soon as the referee set foot on it, water came up over his boots. Whilst the referee did take the weather forecast into account, after consulting the groundsman (and lets face it the groundsman is the one who knows the pitch) he felt there was very little, if any, chance of the pitch being playable by kick-off. Hence, unfortunately, the postponement.
I entirely concur that it was very frustrating to see the game called off given the weather on Saturday, particularly for Rob who makes that long journey every week, but based on what I've been told today, it sounds like it was entirely the right decision, and Bury were saved from what was likely to be a fruitless journey if we'd waited until the afternoon to make a final decision.
At least the weather does finally seem to be on the turn - from Friday onwards it is supposed to finally settle down. All being well we'll get the two games played this week. Kinda hoping we lose to Hampton as if we get to the final we lose our Easter Monday trip to Bognor!
