One of the disadvantages of having plastic pitch is no postponements and away teams having long trips to play us on a Tuesday night. Instead Dorking have to do the long mid week travels which don't suit a part time team

Early days, but forecast for Tuesday morning onwards in Altrincham is heavy and constant rain... 😬

Net weather (which is what football clubs use) is for moderate rain, moving to light rain by kick off and nothing during the match

Crossing fingers!

@dorking-eagle We'll see. BBC has constant rain from 8am, heavy from1pm through till 9pm...

Difficult one though, as when the players depart, it will probably be absolutely fine.

Altrincham announced that refunds will be processed and that tickets will be free when the game goes ahead (probably 3 years from now at this rate...)

That is something which I am pleased about.

Next date cannot be before 5th March as that is the first date both clubs are free.

Had a look at monthly forecast on AccuWeather and there is lots of rain forecast in Altrincham between now and then. Also due to rain fairly consistently the day before and a bit on the day as well with snow(!) forecast during the night in between...

Weather forecasts are only very accurate from 3 or 4 days before in my opinion. They have probably just looked at the Manchester average weather for the time of year. 19 days away so we could still be lucky.

@dorking-eagle Yeah for sure, take it with a pinch of salt.

@calvertskans

Yep David's right. Weather only even vaguely accurate up to a few days. Apparently it takes the slightest shift in wind or something in some far off place to change it all...

It was more just to point out that with rain generally expected over the next few weeks, their pitch will likely not be in great condition. Will also mean I wait a bit for a more accurate weather forecast before booking train/hotel...

Nothing yet (albeit I bought mine in October). Hoped it would have come automatically.
