Come on, Pete, must be time for a post along the lines of:

“Rain forecast for the next 24 hours or so, with more wet stuff (possibly white) on Monday. Are we going to get a game over Easter?”

Fingers crossed tomorrow will be okay, but looking at the forecast for Monday I fear the game will be off.

Actually , It's usually me. Being an exile I can only get to so many games so have been annoyed that every week it gains Friday into Saturday.
Rob , if Spenny is off any ideas if there's a contingency plan to switch to BM if It's OK?

Would seem a very strange move at this stage in the season

Not really. Another postponement would mean their fixture congestion becoming virtually unmanageable.

They’re only a couple of games behind most teams around them. Still a few Thursday’s free

Bad weather for Monday in Spennymoor, the forecast is for sleet and possible snow from 08-00. There is no way the game could be switched at such short notice, especially with it being Easter.

Quite a bit of rain overnight and it's due to rain lightly all day, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a pitch inspection. Given the state of the Spennymoor pitch, I'd be surprised if our Easter Monday game goes ahead.

Weather forecast still looks bad for tomorrow, despite things possibly drying up today.

No chance tomorrow. Don't think there'll be a game in our league. Shame we couldn't have switched it to 7.45 tonight before it hits.

Doesn't look good. What a shame. Mind, Spens pitch might not have been up to it even for today.

Someone on the Tin Shed reckons Spenny have covers on to keep off the rain.

I'm pretty sure the league won't allow us to play them at home twice!

Unless you ground share I'm pretty sure that's a no no.

I am very hopeful of this game getting the go ahead, been dry mostly all afternoon, so I'll wait with baited breath
Hopeful of getting a yes for it to be on.
Don't know much about Spennymoor pitch condition though.

Heavy rain in Darlo throughout this morning. I'm afraid a dry afternoon will come far too late, as the game will be called off this morning. I'm just waiting for the inevitable pitch inspection announcement.

Not sure which weather forecast you've seen, but it's rain all day long I'm afraid.

They've probably had to bring in a rowing boat to reach the centre circle!!
