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.
