Cheshunt v Ebbsfleet United Match Postponed

The excessive rain of the last few weeks in addition to rain overnight & this morning has left the Theobalds Lane end of the ground with surface water not draining at the rate we can usually expect from the pitch at this time of year.

A pitch inspection at 14-00 found surface water puddling in key areas, forking the pitch reveals water sitting just under the surface in most areas of the Theobalds Lane End.

It was not playable at the time of the inspection, and is not draining, any further rain would be likely to compound the situation.

It’s disappointing but an early decision helps everyone adjust their plans accordingly & avoids wasted time, expense and further disappointment. ┬áThe two match secretaries will agree a rescheduled date as soon as is practical.
