The forecast is better than it was in that crucially it’s not going to be as cold at night so should thaw in time for a 3pm ko. Also we’re lucky that we’re playing a local team so if needed a late inspection can take place.
Quite often it is not the pitch but the safety of the spectators that is the problem.
Not too sure about that. I can only recall one occasions where that was the case (the car park was too icy), and the SSC game v Merstham which was played but fans were only restricted to the main stand on that basis.
I think if the club are confident the game will go on, the factor out of their control will be the pitch, the playability of which is only decided by a qualified referee.
We'll get a better idea when the frost covers come off at 10am tomorrow.
So today we come up against allegedly the highest paid player in League 2 (other than players on loan from Premier League clubs) - Dom Telford on £4,500pw. Following a number of recent departures from Crawley, it appears that they may have only one goalkeeper left at the club.
I do not know but expect it is the area left of tunnel infront of the grandstand which does not get any sun onto it until much later in day. Even the last time the covers were used this section had frost on it when match got underway.
This afternoon's match against Crawley has been postponed due to a frozen section of the pitch in front of the main stand which has not had the sun on it, although the remainder of the pitch is playable. Our thanks to all the volunteers who helped with the covering and uncovering of the pitch yesterday and today in an effort to have the game played. Tickets bought for today's game should be retained as they will be valid for the rearranged game.
ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?

scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

scorpioeyes: yes,'arrogant' is the right word. No objectivity allowed!

valiant: Hello again! Can you tell me where the away seating is please? I thought it was behind the goal next to the away terrace but looking at the film on Quest I can't see it! Thanks.

pinewalker: There is a temporary stand at 45 degrees to the pitch behind the NE corner flag, and there is more away seating at the east end of the main stand both accessed via the away turnstiles.

holmesdale96: Sorry to hear of Danny's death, a real loss. I saw him regularly during the 90's at his home in Streatham, always charged the same small fee for years, an absolute gentleman with his dear wife Rose. RIP Danny
