Suprised that 2 games were completed, I was going to Gravesend v Aldershot phoned the club about 1 and was told it should be on, rung back about 2pm and a recorded message said it was off feel sorry for Shots fans who had a wasted trip, they've got enough problems with Borg as manager!!

Well what happened was that the referee inspected the pitch at 1:15 by which time there was only one strip at the covered end that was still frozen and the sun was just getting to it so he decided to wait until 1:45 and inspect again.<p>On the second inspection he decided that the problem area wouldn't be ready by 3:00 so he called it off.<p>It was a marginal decision at 1:15 and everything was done to try to get the pitch ready. <p>The only other option would been to have called it off at about 11:00 to save anybody travelling, but it was felt then that there was still a good chance that we could have got the game played, and that would have been in everybody's interest.<p>Sadly at the end of the day we couldn't play and everyone got pissed off, but in my humble opinion it was worth trying.<p>A different referee may well have played because the pitch was 100% better than last year when the referee gave the go ahead to play Farnborough.
