With the weather mild and wet, conditions for algae to flourish in the astroturf at the KGV were perfect and yesterday the pitch flooded once again. This was the scene at 2pm this afternoon.

The only slight silver lining is that the level of sludge on the pitch seems relatively light at the moment, which may ease the process of bringing it back into use. In the meantime we have asked to have the pitch treated for algal infestation as soon as possible, so we are hoping that we will not lose the pitch for weeks on end as we did last season.

Kobras tonight is likely to be off, but we'll inspect at 4pm just in case it has drained sufficiently. We'll notify everyone shortly afterwards.
