Our Chris and I were one of the ones affected by the cancellation. It is one of those things and though we were angry at the time, I am now philosophical about it. I do believe that Stourbridge tried to get the game on but they were beaten by the weather. We were kept waiting outside the ground for 30 minutes as Stourbridge did not want to charge us until they knew the game was on. Plenty of enjoyable banter with our players outside the ground, but I felt for them coming all that way for nothing and we felt their frustration too, but these things happen. Stourbridge staff were very apologetic so no worries.

After the game Stourbridge invited us into their clubhouse for a couple of pints before we went home. I'm glad we did that as it was quite nice. Oh by the way I have this thing about pork scratchings, as the club and most of you know. That area of Birmingham from Wolverhampton to Stourbridge is actually where they originate from. Bought two bags at the ground and they were the best I have ever tasted!! Yum.

Went back on the coach afterwards and got off at Alty leisure centre, headed on the tram to Sale.  Went to the Block and Gasket to watch City v Newcastle and then for  a Ruby Murray afterwards. Went to the spice restaurant on  Northenden Road as could not get into Marsala Lounge. Very very hot Madras which did me in this morning.

Strange day that!!

We enjoyed a blinding session around town. Fixed trains so just go with it.

Why do we go through this b*llocks every time a game is called off?

I tried to go over to Ashton, they confirmed early doors that the game was definitely ON - only for it to be called OFF at 2pm.

The weather is nobody's fault. Grow up.

Probably suits us to play on a firmer pitch at a later date.

Spennymoor are definitely bankrolled. Don't know about Blyth.

Have to agree with Evostik Shame. Yes we are flying on the pitch this season but let's not get too carried away.

Well we've spent the last five seasons playing hoofball. It used to annoy me that we booted it out from goal and almost always looked for the second ball after an opposition mistake so I'm not sure the league above is so great. Blyth and Spennymoor seem to be doing OK.

Me and Happy Clappy are friends again.

Who would have known what a postponed fixture would bring together?

It will be Phil's fault by the end of the week no doubt

Feel for all that made the journey today

The supporters coach is nearly back, but as someone who was at the ground I can confirm they did try to get it on, with volunteers helping out since 12. Spoke to them in the bar before we headed back. Itís just one of those things for me, in some refs opinions itís playable, in others not playable. Their manager was also gutted it was off, so none of this bollocks that they wanted it off.

Clouds over Stourbridge may have a silver lining. Shaw Lane 1-2 down at half time.
