    Happy to get our game on at VP today, another fixture out the way. Was great to get the game on after using our new machinery thanks to the Football Foundation, St Day PC, Chris Matthews plastering and selling our old Mowers. Too big and heavy for your pitch I expect older.
    Water table not really dropped this week, dry on Friday when I spiked but Water logged again by 7pm and this morning but thanks to no rain we were game on.
     
    Hopefully with next weeks drier weather we can get the water table down a bit more and grass growing a bit quicker. Games coming thick and fast (unless league's say otherwise). Would be bloody typical, games called off through weather, now get some drier weather and along comes Mr Virus!!
    Agree with investment older, we've got lucky and invested more so in our pitch and machinery in the last 4 years and it's now starting to pay off. Oh yeah and let's not forget hours of hard work from many volunteers.
     
    More rain over night, cannot see the youth playing tomorrow....god sake!

    Best thread I have read on here for years! Keep up the good work all you groundsmen out there. Some of us fans do appreciate you and I suppose you do enjoy the challenge of it if you are honest.
    A big well done from me!

    This is no doubt due to the rain in the last few seasons bringing the fines/silt to the surface. The net result being no air spaces in the top of the soil profile, without them grassland will retain water in the top structure of a pitch...soft slow draining will be the result. 
    Solution, we will have to hollow core the pitch and use a silicate sand to put air spaces back into the top of the profile.
    Hollow coring and sanding is the only solution to this problem, vertidraining will not resolve this as the action of the vertidrain although relieving compaction does produce compacted holes that close again.
    You can see from the cores that the rubber crumb that was used some 10+ years ago is still very much doing its job maintaining air spaces...happy with that.
    I have posted this suggest that many other pitches could be suffering from the same problem. 
    If you go back to your school days and your science lessons, remember the soil in the test tube with water, the fines come to the surface and the large particles go to the bottom,  the same happens to soil that is continually soaked flooded.
    Hollow core and sanding it is then.
    Hope this helps.

    Hope the game goes well, both managers have picked a side in what is a thankless job. Let’s face it everyone is an expert and could pick a better team, but at least you are both giving it a go.

    As long as a team complies with League Rules, they are perfectly entitled to select players as they see fit.

    We could all do with a few more like Tom involved with our clubs. 
    We're lucky to have such a wonderful band of volunteers & committee members at St Day, especially the younger generation like Mark Leah 👏.

    What would life have been without football - that's a good question. Blimey, if you took the football and all the time you spent playing, watching it and traveling to it, out of your life, what would be left and what would you have done instead ? !
    We are talking about all those years ago - at school, after school, Saturday mornings and afternoons, evenings too as a young lad. Now I'm 76 and still can't walk past a football ground without stopping to look and imagine. My wife has put up with a lot over the years bless her, we cant go on holiday somewhere new - but I find our way to the local football ground in some small village or town - just to see in and look at the pitch and stands. To perhaps admire the money that must have been spent building the stands etc,. It gladdens the heart when you realize the love that still exists for the game around the country, evidenced by what has been spent providing a venue for locals to come and watch our ''national game''.
    Long may it continue Mark.

    This scenario is covered under standard league rules Nigel.  The Combination would have vacancies and clubs could apply to fill them.  It would then be up to the league as to whether they would take them or not.  I'm sure there will be discussions between the 2 leagues.
