Here's the latest update on this weekend's hockey (7.30pm Friday 2nd March)
Green Pitch (THC 2)
The green pitch was rock solid at 2pm today and not improve earlier this evening, with some snow coverage too - so no chance of any hockey tomorrow ! ALL GAMES CANCELLED DUE TO ROCK HARD FROZEN PITCH
12.15pm - Men 5 v Macclesfield 3
1.40pm - Ladies 3 v Golborne 1
4.30pm - Badgers v Deeside (opposition cancelled)
Blue Pitch (THC 1)
The pitch was in much better shape than the green pitch. Approx 15% snow coverage at the back line / ends of pitch but rest of pitch was pretty good, the top carpet wasn't frozen - although hard underneath in some areas.
So subject to tonight's weather and temperatures tomorrow morning we feel there is enough of a chance of some or all games being played that the pitch inpsection decisions will be made on Saturday morning - see below. Currently assume all games are potentially on.
We will need to rally a small army of volunteers to help move the snow - two shifts required at 9.00am and 10.00am - bring warm clothes, gloves and if you have a plastic snow shovel bring your own ! We have shovels ready at the club, Help get some hockey played by lending a hand Saturday morning !
12.30pm - Ladies 1 v Beeston 1. Pitch inspection early doors and decision to be confirmed to Beeston and Officals by 9am
2.15pm Men's 1 v Chester 1. Pitch inspection late morning.
4.00pm Men's 4's v Wrexham - decision will follow the Men's 1 decision.
The following away games are cancelled:
Ladies 2's v Bolton
Ladies 4's v Triton
Men's 2's v Northrop Hall
Men's 4's v Chester
Men's 6's v Macclesfield
Beavers v Preston
Awaiting Pitch Inspection updates for:
Ladies 5 v Bowdon at AGSB (decsion on Saturday morning)
Academy Training - decision will be made on Saturday evening or Sunday morning depending on weather
Mini Under 12's tournament at THC in the afternoon - cancelled
GMJHL Under 15 - cancelled
Thankfully the weather is due to improve next week so hopefully we'll be back to normal !
Keep up to date tomorrow morning in all the usual places to see if we can get some hockey on at Stockport Road - if we do and you're not playing come down and support the teams braving the cold !
