Bartley Green v Meir KA (OFF)

Tuesday 2nd December 2008
Bartley Green v Meir KA
Kick-off: 7-45 pm - postponed due to a frozen pitch
Midland Combination Premier Division

This game fell victim to a late postponment due to a frozen pitch even though both sides wanted to start what would have been, according to the Chairman, Bartley Green's first game under lights.

I'd contacted the Secretary before setting off who, quite correctly, told me the game was ON. And, having walked on the pitch myself around 7 pm, the majority of the pitch was soft with a hard area in the far goalmouth.

The ground, in a rural location a few miles south of Halesowen, can be reached from the M5 junction 3. Follow the A456 towards Kidderminster then left at the roundabout onto the B4551. After about 400 yards turn left into Illey Lane and the ground entrance is on the left down a farm track before entering Illey village.
