One of the dryest and warmest springs for years, and in particular two weeks of dry sunny weather leading up to the game. Surely at last the long awaited fixture between the two Greens was going to happen?
Alas no. With a week to go before the fixture the message arrived that the game was off, due to a water logged pitch! A certain amount of incredulity greeted this amongst the New Ash Green stalwarts, but nothing much could be done about it. The question has to be asked of the opposition, though, if this game couldn't be played this year, when will it ever be played?
