Volunteers required to clear snow


22nd March 2013

We are looking for volunteers to help clear snow off the pitch from 9.15am tomorrow morning, ahead of our proposed game to Macclesfield Town.

Willing volunteers are asked to report to the main reception on Quarry Lane at the above time and ask for Mike Merriman, Head Groundsman. Brushes and wheelbarrows should be brought to help clear the snow from both the pitch and stands, if possible.

Said Michael Merriman: "I'm working closely with Tina & Paul Broughton (Operations Directors) and we have procedures in place to do as much as we can to try and get the game on."

Manager Paul Cox added: “We'll be doing all we can to get the fixture on for tomorrow. Depending on the forecast, we will be very hopeful that the game can go ahead."

Frost covers were placed on the pitch Wednesday and are currently protecting the playing surface from an inch of snow
