Rain hasn't been as bad as forecast up to now. Light rain throughout today shouldn't be a problem. But they are now forecasting heavy rain from 9am through to 2pm, which may well be a problem and will certainly affect the attendance.

Nice to see a positive attitude regarding today's game.
Some of us get a little fed up of the gloomy weather predictions, not just this game either.
There are some on here who usually start predicting the bad weather on a Tuesday prior to league games and are often wrong..
They know who they are..

I did some of this, but when you are an exile who doesn't get to many games, and missed 5 games in a row due to bad weather, then it is going to make you slightly uneasy about the weather. To be fair, from Feb to April, every week the weather without fail would tip it down Friday into Saturday and it did hammer our attendances.

No, but it does affect whether you travel as an exile, depending on how far away you live.

Exactly, if I didn't live in this area, I'd be pleased if people gave me a heads up on possible weather related problems.

If you are that concerned and have the capacity to check a Darlo_Pete authored thread on darlo uncovered you have the capacity to google the weather forecast.

It's england, the world doesn't stop turning because of the weather, if you want to help make it a good day turn up and help make it so. You can make it better by being there at Blackwell meadow 2pm kick off, rain subsiding through early afternoon according to the forecast.

But that is the problem.
Your "heads up" on a "possible" problem especially earler on in the week are very often wrong.

Exactly, get down and support the club with all the effort our brilliant volunteers have put in, money into the coffers, looking forward to a great afternoon.

Really enjoyed that, it was an excellent afternoon some great football and some very good goals, if you could not make it you missed something special.

What was the attendance like?

Some real left field names in the 'legends' team by the looks of it - Ruel Fox for example!

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

As a guess on attendance about 1100, look out for Thompsons and Henshalls goals ,brilliant.

Henshall's goal was brilliant :clap: We got a really good view of it - he teed it up quickly and hit it right on the 'sweet spot'. If this had been done in a proper match we would be rightly raving on about for years!
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

It was great to see Amar again, who looked as if he could step back in to the side with ease, and the way he made one of the goals was great to see. You could tell that he enjoyed being back with us again.
Even the weather was kind; the torrential rain eased off and it got quite bright at one point. A really enjoyable afternoon and some good coverage on the telly tonight.

Working on the full highlights here. However we've got five cameras worth of footage to shift through so might take me a little longer than normal.
