    Afternoon All, so Im sat here writing this Wednesday evening, whilst its hammering it down outside, praying it will stop and that well have a game today. Not playing since Boxing Day isnt ideal, weather has been awful and caused us to have the Weymouth and Stratford games called off. Our pitch was under water when we trained on it last week so if the game is on the groundsman has done wonders. The lads are raring to go today more than ever, were all chomping at the bit to play. Weve had some tough training sessions and have all kept in check and should all be sharp still (minus possibly me and Walks, its hard to be sharp when youre 14st plus).

    Its vital we get back to winning ways today and get another three points on the board, teams are creeping up behind us in the table and we want to keep distance be-tween them. We owe Kings

    Lynn, after they beat us at their place earlier in the season. Get behind the boys, this is a huge part of our season and we need every bit of help and support we can get if we want this season to be a success.

  • BOARDROOM NOTESChris ReevesVice Chairman

    Surely we will have a game this afternoon!! The last two sets of notes I have put together havent been read by anyone as both the Hitchin game on the Tuesday before Christmas and then so frustratingly the Weymouth fixture on 2nd January fell foul of the torrential rain that we have all had to endure of late. The drain-age works that were undertaken in the Summer have in fairness done us proud up until the last few weeks.The pitch drains better now than it has done for years but compounded by the high tide it just couldnt cope with what the heavens threw at it on New Years day and on into the Saturday morning.The whole pitch was under water and quite frankly was the worst I had ever seen it!

    The frustrations of the postponement went far beyond the obvious denied opportunity of ninety minutes entertainment and hopefully another three points.The loss of a massive injection of cash from the game was a huge blow to our cash-flow and financial planning.That loss compounded of course by the fact that not only did we not get any money from the game but we were also left with bills to pay-for the programme of course that had all been prepared and printed,for the toilets that had been hired in to cater for the needs of the expectedcontingent of Weymouth fans that were to be housed in the Fleetsbridge end of the ground,not to mention the food and beer that had been bought,in anticipation of a bumper crowd some of which inevitably went to waste. Not a good start to the year!! Rant over!

    This afternoon we are (hopefully!)extending a warm Tatnam welcome to our friends from kings Lynn Football Club in the shape of their players officials and supporters.It is a huge distance to travel and when we played the away game we did in fact travel up on the Friday before the game.I trust that our opponents had a reasonable journey here and that they return home safely.

    Kings Lynn are a side that command great respect .They are well supported and have an excellent non-league pedigree.They inflicted a 3-2 defeat on us in that game back in September and we will need to be at our very best to secure the points today.I have no doubt that we are in for an excellent game of football.

    Last weeks postponement of the trip to Stratford meant that there was a good chance to run our eye over Hitchin who were playing away

    at Weymouth.Hitchin are in a good run of form and are clearly going to be one of our main challengers for the title.They won the game as most of you will know by 2-0 in quite appalling conditions.Fierce wind and driving rain were the order of the day and good football was obviously not easy.Full credit to Hitchin though they certainly produced a thoroughly disciplined competent performance and thoroughly de-served the win.Weymouth were bewilderingly off the pace and will not look back on the afternoon with any satisfaction particularly knowing that Tom,Callum and a good clutch of our first team squad were all sat in the Stand!!

    No midweek game this week so the next outing for the lads is another long trip to Merthyr next Saturday.Still some places on the coach if you fancy a day out in Wales so do contact Bill Reid to book your seat.

    You may notice today a new face selling the 50:50 tickets-after many years raising much needed funds for the Club by selling these tickets on match days Pete Blundell has finally hung up his money bag and he does so with huge thanks for all his efforts-the number of times he sold that last remaining ticketis legendary!His long stand-ing equally hard working colleague Geoff is now going to ply his trade with a new partner Pete Lewis who has so kindly stepped forward and offered his services to replace Pete.Our thanks go to him and as the old saying gores The king is dead-long live the king!!

    Hopefully the recent bout of inactivity will,have given Richard Gillespie and Jamie Gleeson more time to recover from their injuries that have so blighted their season-both are so frustrated and desperate to be back in the thick of things and all being well that might even be today.

    Finally my usual exhortation to enjoy the game and not to forget to buy those 50:50 tickets

    Poole remain 12 points clear at the summit, but slumped to their second successive draw in two games, as relegation threatened Frome Town managed to battle to a 0-0 draw.

    Most will look at the scoreline and presume the game was a dull affair but there were a catalogue of chances in both halves, the majority falling to Poole.

    The visitors would go close around the ten minute mark, as Marvin Brooks shot rattled the crossbar, before Lee Wort saw his shot well saved by Darren Chitty in the Frome goal.

    Poole would continue piling on the pressure and their next best chance came as a ball

    was scooped over the Frome backline, allowing Lindsay to fire a shot off the rebound falling to Wort, who spurred his opportunity by tapping wide of the goal.

    After the break and Frome became more confident on the ball and quickly looked to keep it, their grasp of the game growing larger. However, Poole would still have the better chances including hitting the post twice. Both near-miss-es came amongst a flurry of chances, which Poole just couldnt seem to convert.

    The best chance was prob-ably when substitut
