I believe the club was looking into possibly playing the tie at Silver Jubilee Park, but the pitch is booked some time in advance and to “jock off (a horse racing term for a better jockey taking a ride from a lesser one)” another club is not nice.
I think the club is to be praised for showing the initiative to actually get out and play the games and if it is at somewhere other than our home, so be it.
It is a bind to have fixtures arranged/re-arranged at short notice, but the important thing is to get the games played. Too often our playoff hopes have been dashed by fixture congestion, so if we can get the League Cup and London Senior Cup quarter-finals both played on days other than our regular ones, then this has to be a good thing (especially if we can win). Last season, if you remember, we played Staines in the Middlesex Senior Cup at the 3G pitch at Beaconsfield Road, Hayes & Yeading United FC, because their ground was unusable.
It is no one’s fault that the Earlsmead pitch is in such a poor state at the moment – it doesn’t help Harrow Borough and it certainly doesn’t suit us – but we have to get on with it.
