The only people at a club who should ever contact a referee are the Secretary and Match Secretary.

I don’t agree with you that referees should able to postpone matches on the evidence of photographs and, as I mentioned in the previous posting, unless there has been a major weather incident, they should be at the ground to see the state of the pitch for themselves.

Last night was very inconvenient for everyone concerned – I was one hour into my journey to Earlsmead and it took me almost two more to get home – but it was a combination of unfortunate circumstances that caused postponement. And, at 5.00pm, it is quite possible, even if there had been enough light, that a photograph might not have persuaded the referee to call off the game.
