Was called off at the last minute by the referee. Officials from the club claim there was only drizzle this morning and the pitch was playable. In fact they say there was sunshine at 15:00 when the game would have kicked off. Bognor fans who made the trip (based on advice from lewes FC twitter) were not happy. I don’t blame them.
Who at lewes FC was wearing the rose tinted spectacles today?

The facts are that the pitch was playable in the morning. Any inspection would have passed it fit. The referee was delayed in traffic and was nearly an hour later than usual getting there. So one of his assistants had a look at about 1.15 and declared it playable. The referee arrived about 2.10. He said it was unplayable and rules dictate that he has the final say. Very unfortunate all round. Sad for the away fans having a wasted journey. Sad for the club losing thousands in revenue. But no one is to blame. S**t happens.
