It's been raining again

The drainage problems at Gawthorpe are well documented and cause changes to the schedule for the first team training, sometimes because of the conditions a training session is replaced with a walk.

But it also means that for the last two seasons our youth team have been unable to fulfil their fixtures. Thankfully the weather hasn’t been too bad so far this season and this is only the second to be called off, the last one was for a frozen pitch, and we are virtually on schedule to complete our Youth Alliance League fixtures.

Tomorrow’s game was against Preston, and it is our last home game in this league. We lost 3-0 at Preston earlier in the season and were hoping for a better result. The game will now be played in three weeks time, Saturday 31st January again at 11:00 a.m.
