  1. Saturday 28 August. Game postponed due to Covid outbreak at Porthleven
  2. Martin if you need a pitch any time give me a call on 07787040107 FOC mate. Greg Hayle FC
  3. Just to set your mind at rest Fenman cutting the pitch this morning had the first swallows this year. Two of them swooping and diving to pickup the insects, hopefully they will return to their usual nest inside our pay booth. Got to say it is the latest I have ever known, unless anyone else knows different.
  4. not a strange question at all been on the pitch a lot recently both cutting, brushing and scarifying. Not one swallow they were late arriving last year and quite late leaving, maybe another indication that the seasons are moving everywhere.
  5. pretty much the same over here Dave and I think Mark has same problem at St Day never had it before in 30 years made a right mess. However starting to make a recovery, so out with the machinery and try to clear it up. Every where has it this season some local golf clubs badly affected must be a change in the autumn climate I suppose
  6. What game at Hayle don't know any thing about it!!!!
  7. another urban myth developing. Just because football isn't happening doesn't mean to say the bills aren't still coming in. Nobody told grass about covid so it still grows. We at Hayle are still paying out for insurance, gas, electric, telephone line, and general maintenance in anticipation of the season starting some time. Apart from the people generously paying their subs and a government grant, 9 out of the last 10 months income has been zilch and with outgoings of about £700 per month our reserves are suffering.
  8. half inch rain this side, since midnight on North coast and more to come. Going back over the rainfall here since 2011,from September to March the lowest rainfall was 7 inches 2016/17 and the highest 21 inches 14/15. The last two winters have been the wettest since 2014.Surprisingly the year on year average per year. has been pretty consistent between 24 and 30 inches, each year. Seems to even itself out with wet winters and dry summers or vice versa. However that is only for this part of the North coast. Keep a smile on your face Dave think of all the divots we haven't had to put back in!
  9. you and me both mate, now I've got b**** crows digging up the pitch!
  10. nice one Paul just got to keep the floods away now.
  11. I'm with you Dave, we aren't going to get a decision any time soon I don't think, hope I'm wrong, but, in the meantime keep the pitches ready just in case. Coming up to a good time for pitches with warmer weather coming on and hopefully a bit of damp to help things along. Although not the amount of rain we've had recently, spring flush just around the corner guys
  12. just as wet this side today! Best case we've had for a mid season break ever. Good job I've got a pair of dunlop wellies.
  13. north coast been a bit luckier. chain harrowed, spiked and overmarked this week! Yesterday managed to get the 3G brushed just about dry enough first time since new year, and to top it all off had me a covid jab as well! Keep safe guys
  14. not so bad this side Older 2 degrees but top 10mm still frozen
  15. last of the slow release hanging around I think Mark. Had frost Friday morning but all gone by lunchtime, influence of the sea no doubt. Oddly enough the 3G was clear of any frost or ice, must be the heat holding properties of the poly, sand and rubber. Stay safe and keep your head down
  16. taken 17 days but finally got on to the pitch today with the machine. Still a little soft on top, shame there is no football but better safe than sorry
  17. most people don't read the small print John ,it is going to be very difficult for some clubs lower than SWPL to comply with the Tier 3 regs with regard to spectators
  18. just walked our pitch soggy on top, but given a dry day on Thursday, may be able to put a machine on Friday. if only to make it look presentable. Good luck everyone else lets hope the precipitation stops sometime soon. Maybe time to look seriously at a mid season break!
  19. Due to time constraints and weather conditions this week, the grass pitch at Hayle has not been prepared to the standard required for JCCL football. Therefore Saturdays fixture with Pendeen will be played on the 3G .Spectators are advised that no covered facilities or clubhouse are available . Toilets will be open.
  20. I believe there is another side to 3G usage at NLS level very few 3G pitches locally can accomodate spectators to NLS standards ,hence probably the lack of useage above regional feeder level
  21. Just walked 10 yards onto my pitch leaving muddy prints but hopeful if rain stops tonight at 2.00 am it will dry out sufficiently for 2.30 ko
  22. I watch about 5 forecasts a day and also follow 2 different forecasts on the net. The weather Radar app is very useful for short term rain forecasts, however as Dave says the South coast gets a lot more rain than the North. Also because we are a peninsular there is a greater chance of isolated weather conditions. Several years ago, when Boscastle got wiped out I watched the rain advance up the Bristol Channel not 5 miles off shore. Hayle and the west (35 miles as the crow flies) never had a drop of rain that afternoon. I have a similar hill to the west which always gives me a good idea of what is coming up
