Away v Billericay OFF.....the reason(s)

Away v Billericay OFF.....the reason(s)

Following a chat with Wayne last evening, between the 2 of us we felt that for the 1st time in 8 years we had to call off this weekends game, we hope that you appreciate our reasoning.

This was theoretically a weekend off but we know that is always liable to change, which it did. This would have been the 1st of 4 away games on the bounce leading up to Xmas.

I was aware that Georgina would probably not be available, hoping that Poppy would recover from her injury which would have given us 11 players, that would have been fine, but I had an email last evening telling me that Poppy would not be returning to us following her injury, thus we were down to 10 players. We both feel that following the 2 games that we have already played Billericay this season, starting with 10 players would not be the best thing for the girls, no problem with 11, a hard game we can accept but we see no benefit in putting the girls to the sword at the start of a hard few weeks.

I was not particularly pleased with the KO time after 2.00pm and I know that some of you weren't either, driving back on the A12 in the dark on a Sunday is not the best way to end the weekend!

We are now down to 11 players for the rest of the season, I have tried relentlessly to recruit to no avail. We are both (all) very happy with the girls that we have got, they are a credit to you all and to themselves, they have been great at training in the last 3 weeks, we will not see them compete on an uneven platform, thus the call off.

We will lose the points and we will be fined for not completing the fixture, It cannot be challenged and I don't think it should be, it's a consequence of running a tight squad and the league have already accommodated my requests this season, hopefully we will recover and bounce back in the next few weeks starting with training on Tuesday evening.
