I arrived at the Grove at 1.30 to sit down with a fish and chip supper, with the expectation of seeing a game. I was chatting with an old friend when the rumour started, the ref had called the game off.
Leatherhead players were still out with the ball, while Horsham had headed inside. The word being the goal mouths were not fit to play on.
Strange, as at that point the rain had been light since the inspection which had deemed it OK. Perhaps the ref had one eye on the forecast.
Disappointing but we were probably spared a diabolical game in the wind...
