All clubs with an artificial surface have been given a year's grace due to the pandemic.

I think the original intention was for the pitch to have been re-laid in the summer just gone, however due to severe reductions of income that's not been possible. Our landlords at SJP have only just in the past couple of months been able to re-open to the various educational programmes that are hosted at the ground and which are a huge source of income.

The pitch is now in its 7th season of use and has undoubtedly seen better days. I think everyone concerned knows that it's not as good as others in our league.

What plans are in place for next summer, I have no idea, I hope it's able to be replaced and be of the quality of others in the division but as with all these things, finances dictate. Should it fail its next inspection then the club is in a bit of a sticky place.

That said, any perceived advantage we might have can be mitigated by our 6-2 defeat to Hayes and 3-1 defeat to Dorchester this season.

As for yesterday's game. I thought it was hard-fought but lacking in much quality. I don't think either side would have been able to argue had it ended all-square, especially given the number of players we were both missing for various reasons, but the luck ran our way this time.

Always a pleasure to see some familiar faces from our time at Earlsmead.
