Pitch Suitability - Postponement

Post by swannsong »

Does anyone know who to contact to make an early call about pitch suitability for todays games.
Southern Knights ground has water pooling and extremely soft under foot this morning with more rain expected.
SA Panthers have called off all their junior games this morning and the sports complex management would prefer games not to go ahead
as they will most likely leave the surface in a poor condition for the remainder of the season.
We also have catering booked and Ingle Farm have a fair distance to travel so I would like to get an early decision.
Any help appreciated.

Edited for you, but next time remember to put a full stop on the end of your sentence.

Pitches didn't see so much use as potential juniors were all too busy working down the mines.
Now, if you're lucky, you could hack through your ankle in five minutes.

SAASL showing all 3 games as 0-0. I thought your comment was more likely.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.
