General Discussion / The Pitch
« on: December 08, 2019, 07:56:57 PM »
Having received numerous comments on the recent condition of the pitch, I thought I ought to respond.

With the greatest respect to the Chairman, Management, Players and of course the fans, I cannot be called to account for the amount of rain we have had in the last couple of months. For everyone’s information, we have had, without splitting hairs, 320 mm (old money 13 inches) of rain the the last 7 weeks.

Also, for your information, one inch of water equals 113 tons of water per acre.   The pitch is one and a half acres. Therefore, we have effectively had 2,200 tons of water in 7 weeks. Even with the new drainage installed, I have no control over the amount of rain we have had.  I can assure you that I will do my best to keep the pitch flat and divot free at 3 pm. What happens during the game is out of my hands.

Rant over.
