Daffy Harrow Town Goof Everyone Off
Pacific v Harrow Town at Wray Crescent  Sun 07-Sep-2008 at 12 noon
Won By Walkover
Friendly fixture

Following on from their apology accusing Pacific of being Mickey Mouse, HTCC went the full Disney & stated that they had no intention aof fulfilling the fixture a full 36 minutes before the scheduled start much the consternation of the Pacific Secretary, the umpire , scorer, groundsman, tea lady & 12 players ready to play their illustrious opponents from The Middlesex League Division 3.

Citing a poor forecast (there were actually 2 x 5 minute showers between 12 noon & sunset - indeed the sun even came out at 3pm, & an artificial pitch deemed inappropiate for such esteemed visitors.

The PCC Secretary had even gone so far as to make initial enquiries as to holding a bowl our at the IAMS School Gym across the road. Such arrogance & disregard for the home side would take a lot of beating.

An official complaint is underway as is a claim for costs incurred.

A practice game which ended at 3pm was used to vent frustrations & hone skills ahead of the Final next Saturday. The grass in the outfield was higher than perfect due to recent wet weather preventing a short cut. Consequently it was slow & damp. The pitch itself was entirely playable & a full game against any less an intransigent club would have been entirely feasable as the practice session proved. Two showers of 5 minutes duration interrupted play.

Hopefully the final will an enjoyable game against a like minded club who prefer to play cricket than to sit indoors moping.
