I went to Chelsea's game yesterday against the farmers and their pitch is a total disgrace. I went to the Hereford game 24 hours earlier and can honestly say that Canvey's pitch is in better than Chelsea's. You would think that with all Chelsea's money they could at least maintain a decent playing surface.
Well done to Mick and the rest of the groundstaff for keeping the Canvey pitch in the condition its in now. They don't have an easy job with the pitch being below sealevel but we have rarely had a game called off for a waterlogged pitch.
