I deliberately didn’t set out a schedule for the first three months of 2011 – due to weather uncertainties – but who could have predicted such a dire November & December 2010? To be truthful I’ve been lucky, my only games lost being the evening of November 30th ( I was planning a business trip followed by AFC Sudbury) and on December 4th (weekend in Brighton and a trip to Whitehawk – don’t tell the wife – scuppered!)
Even now I’m looking at December 27th with serious doubts as to the value of setting off from base-camp. There’s a do-able triple in the United Counties League that I’ve got my eye on, but it all depends if the anticipated mild spell arrives in time. The lad and I do have tickets for Liverpool v Wolves on Wednesday 29th so we have a fighting chance of seeing SOME festive football.
Then it’s New Year’s weekend. I’m still mulling over Saturday 1st, whilst on the 3rd I reckon an Isthmian double with Tilbury at 1.00 and Thamesmead at 3.00 could be an option. Let’s hope Mother Nature decides enough is enough and relents a bit.
