💬 Groundsman Chaz: "It's disappointing for us as it's the first game we've lost to weather this season, and we only just lost it."

Groundsman Chaz on today's postponement

20 February 2021

Head Groundsman Chaz Woolnough has given us his assessment after the referee called off Saturday's match against Grimsby Town due to a waterlogged pitch.

Chaz and his team worked throughout the week and this morning to ensure the pitch was playable but torrential rain from a yellow weather warning between Friday and Sunday mean they were fighting a losing battle. 

""It's disappointing for us as it's the first game we've lost to weather this season, and we only just lost it," he said.

"I just gave the referee the facts and said what we'd worked on and then it was up the referee to make the decision based on what they saw. 

"The referee looked at 9 and then at 11 so it wasn't an open and shut case."
