It’s later this year than usual, but winter appears to be finally upon us, with the temperature forecast to plummet. It’s an opportune time to remind all junior players and parents that we occasionally have to cancel Sunday morning junior training sessions due to frozen pitches.
If the overnight weather forecast is for sub-zero temperatures the pitches are inspected early on a Sunday morning. Announcements that junior training is cancelled will be posted on the club website, Facebook and Twitter by 8:15am latest if the pitches are unfit and unsafe for play.
Sometimes there is a chance that the late morning sessions (10:00 and later) could still go ahead, even if the earlier sessions are cancelled. In such cases there will be a later inspection and announcement posted by 9:30am latest.
If you suspect that training may be cancelled please check these social media outlets before leaving home.
