I was half-tempted to go over to their Trophy game tonight, but it looks like the weather's going to be atrocious (again)...

What's their pitch generally like?  Is it likely to be on, given the weather we've had overnight?

It held up well for the league game there as the weather had been/was dreadful

When we played there in October, the forecast during the week was for a lot of rain in the days leading up to the match & I called their secretary on the Thursday night to find out the chances of the game taking place. He advised me that their pitch drained really well & that they hadn't had a match called off at Cantilever Park, due to waterlogging,for a long time.The pitch held up very well that day, which has to have been one of the wettest of last year, so there is probably every chance that the game will go ahead.

Think of the lads from Weston Super Mare travelling to Workington, and the weather forecast for later, what a journey!!

Not enough horses and carts, although I suspect you have a stockpile of pony and trap........excellent idea.

I believe Weston wanted the original match to be played to a finish with extra-time and penalties, but Workington, as is completely their right, didn't want to give up home advantage in a possible replay. Good to see somebody taking the Trophy seriously.
Weston then objected to Workington's plans to stay overnight before the game, which I think the home team funds, and then managed to forget, no doubt by accident, to put a stamp on the envelope in which they sent the complimentary tickets up to Workington.
I have heard all this from the Workington side, so there may be some bias, but relations between the clubs,unlike many of these long-distance ties, are not good.
