MATCH ON ... PITCH REPORT FROM LEWES
7.44 Saturday morning
Match on after pitch inspection.
EARLIER STORY (FRIDAY NIGHT):
From 8.30pm to 9.00 pm on Friday night I strolled over the entire pitch at the Dripping Pan. (The ground gates were open and I just walked in).
The state of the pitch is completely unchanged from the photo taken 5 hours earlier at 4pm (below, from Lewes forum). There is a patch of around 30 yards by 20 yards, opposite the main stand, that has standing water. There is another patch in front of the main stand, of around 15 yards by 10 yards, of standing water. The rest of the pitch is mostly ok, though obviously heavy especially in the centre of the pitch.
It will take some clearing in my opinion.
There is a pitch inspection planned for 7.15am on Saturday.
