On behalf of all members of the Zone we would like to thank everyone for their efforts today in helping the club to clear the pitch to enable today's game to go ahead.

I know that there are Zone members present wielding shovels and brooms ------ Cricko would have turned up but the club had enough supervisors standing about, they didn't need another one. :smile::smile::smile::smile:

For people like myself, who live hundreds of miles away, a Saturday without SUFC football is pure hell and the people helping to get the match on are all saints in my book.

3 points please and a surge up the table.

Second everything Ken has said!

Really am proud the club and all the fantastic volunteers have managed to get this game on when others haven’t in the area such as Ipswich. Hopefully this will benefit us with a win and lower the fixture congestion come the end of the season.

Up the Blues!!!

Ken, John would not have been able to have helped out as his carer doesn’t get to his till around 9.00am

Those of you that did help - Well done. Just please be careful when travelling to the game. The pitch may be ok and the game go ahead but the surrounding areas may still be untreated and snow not melted.

Yes, I second the thanks to all the volunteers for getting the match on, from out here in the rural backwater of County Kerry. Currently we are cut off by the weather here, unless I fancy a mile wade to the nearest shop though the snow (which I don't). I fully expected the match to be called off today, so it is an unexpected bonus to be able to see the match today via the gift of iFollow.

If we win today, I'll pluck up the courage to tell the wife we only have 2 days of coal left after today, and after that we will have to start burning the pets if no thaw. I am suggesting we burn them in order of who last shat on the carpet under my desk, most recent first.

Come on you Blues...

I’m on holiday and unable to make the game today so a big **** you to all you “do-gooders” who’ve ensured the game goes ahead. Thanks to you, there won’t be a rearranged game. Honestly, some of you only think about yourselves.

:angry:

Thoughts echoed of others, top effort to all those who helped out this morning. Your hard work and dedication didn't deserve to be rewarded by that sort of performance/result.
