Not a great venue to visit though if the wind and rain are coming from the south-west, because that is the direction which the two kit stands at the ground face into! Not sure why the ground was designed like this, particularly as it is located in a very spacious public open space and it would have not been a problem putting the stands on the other side, or even building the venue in a different orientation. The complex is one of those that requires a QR code but this can be easily circumvented by walking through the excellent café in the main building. The entrance is in Ruislip Road, opposite Byron Way.
Thanks for that

A pointless trip to the Hive to see Barnet v Harrogate called off at 14:30. If it's called off earlier, looking at AFC Stoneham, St Panteleimon or Yeading Town (all 3G) but suspect even some/all of these might go west too.

Witham Town, Rochdale and West Ham United.
Boreham v Pitsea Town
County Motor Works Vauxhall Mid-Essex League Division 2


Another new ground for me and a rare foray into the Mid-Essex League.
Have passed their pitch on my travels many times and it looks like they have a decent clubhouse.

Early plan is Liphook United v Paulsgrove, Hampshire Premier League, the last remaining ground I need in this division. Required 3G back up at AFC Stoneham.
Liphook v Paulsgrove fell yesterday, even before the arrival of Dennis so will probably just head straight for AFC Stoneham v Tadley Calleva.

Anyone who fancies a grass pitch on Saturday should try :-

AFC Alsager v Keele University in Staffs Senior Division 1. Alsager are league leaders and the new ground has superb drainage. Not had a game off this season and almost certain to play on Saturday.

Note, the new ground is at Alsager sports hub in Dunnocksfold Road
[/QUOTE]

Even though my mum warned me about taking advice from strange men, I think I shall follow Dave56's suggestion and head for AFC Alsager v Keele University at 2.30 pm. Unless something more exciting comes along....

That's great, thanks. This is my back up choice, and knowing it is on 3G then I will definitely travel there if first choice is off.

These are the days you thank those contributing to the 3G pitch thread. So im looking at etiher:

Fisher v Crowborough, or

Bedfont Sports with some pre match viewing of planes landing in storm conditions. Might get to see some 'go arounds'.

Bees v Harrogate already off so edging towards St Panteilemon now - even driving to Stoneham probably not looking great (& I now see they're at home on Tue 18th - looking likely to be my last non-Barnet Tuesday this season!)

Flitch United v Dedham Old Boys (2-30) is probably nearest new ground from Great Notley where I'll be running cross country at 1245 so is plan A, though the weather may mean using a back up of either Stanway Pegasus or even Braintree Town for a revisit.
The Essex Cross Country League fixture is off due to forecast high winds, so I need a new plan. Quite possibly struggling to find anything on.

I've just had confirmation that the Cambs County League Premier Division game between Linton Granta (v) Chatteris Town is on the astro pitch at Linton Village College at 15:00 & not 14:00 as per LG's facebook page. That's where I'm going. I looked at weather forecast prediction & rain should arrive approx. 14:00. If it hadn't been for the ice hockey at Cambridge tonight (19:00) I'm not sure what I'd have done.

New plan eggchasing - Guildford v Wimbledon - London Premier. ON according to visitors twitter, 2:30pm KO giving me 30 minutes to get to Dorking Wanderers v Chelmsford City as 3G backup which I'm told counts as a new ground!
