Under 17's - Match centre

Broad Oak
Wed 11 Jul 18:00 - League Abandoned

Oakers frustrated by playing surface....


Match called off - very soggy outfield and clear danger to our crop of youngsters (plus Claims4U, AccidentsDirect etc.,!

Despite a healthy looking square, the RIGHT decision was taken to call off the planned U17 game against Golcar last night with dangerous areas v close to the square. Already partly cordoned off, as Caufield Snr dished out cones around the outfield, it became apparent that there were significant areas also subject to mud/water/sponginess.... and after consultation with Craig, Golcar's mgr and potential umpire Big Dave Walker (and his trusty pooch Digby); agreement was made - perhaps controversially - to not play.

Sorry to all for turning up but we did want a game - however as any litigation / persecution / insurance claims would be levelled at "man in charge" (home umpire/mgr), I for one don't want to lose (another) house/car/life savings settling out of court with a shark solicitor firm who's client "broke his leg" on a clearly dangerous pitch deemed fit to play on..... if you get my drift.......
