Cup Clash Postponed

Cup Clash Postponed

Wednesday's FA Cup 3rd Round replay clash with Derby County has been postponed tonight due to the bad weather around South Yorkshire.

The club had been in contact with the FA regarding the state of the pitch, but had expected the match to go ahead as planned at 10am this morning despite the heavy downpour.

But the match has now been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, following on from the Owls' abandoned Championship clash with Coventry City earlier in the season.

The match will now go ahead next Tuesday, January 22 kicking off at 7.45pm.

Date:Tuesday January 15 2008
Time: 12:23PM

Best to call it off now rather than later, has been throwing it down all morning. Not bad news really as our players will have had a full weeks rest for the big one on Saturday.
will it ever happen

If the 'big one' goes ahead, the rest of the weeks weather isn't looking any better

ITS EMBARRASING... you could understand it if we supported havant & waterlooville.

Embarrasing it is, but it's not all the clubs fault, the summer floods left the pitch in no state to start the season and this is a knock on of that
15/01/2008 13:04:00
to be fair the groundstaff did well to get it playable within a month the state it was in... if they hadnt we could have been docked points n be bottom!!
15/01/2008 13:07:00
or we could have been sharing a ground with the blunts, so I think I prefer it this way
15/01/2008 13:18:00
WE COULD HAVE PLAYED IT TONITE. snorkels and flippers were available.
15/01/2008 13:18:00
Just had a walk through the groung and had a look and it is in a bad way, plenty of surface water on the pitch so if any more heavy rain does fall, we could see the game off on Saturday aswell?!!
will it ever happen

just 1 thing in a huge list thats wrong with this club.... as u can tell im a little dispondant..... cant see a silver lining
