Blues would like to thank Andrews Sykes Group, Mark 1 Hire and the groundstaff
The Club would like to say a big thank you to Andrews Sykes Group who provided us with a heater for the pitch last night to get the game on.
Chief Executive Steve Kavanagh said: “I am really grateful to Paul Wood, the Managing Director, and his team for arranging the pitch heaters for us at short notice yesterday.
“I know Paul from my days at Charlton, where he is the shirt sponsor, and he pulled out all the stops to help us last night. We are extremely grateful for the efforts of Paul and his team who are based in Baslidon.
“I would also like to the ground staff who worked tremendously hard to get the game on in what were deteriorating conditions. Dave Jobson promised me the night before that the game would be on but I have to say as temperatures plummeted to -4 pitch side I will confess to starting to doubt Dave; I think he walked about without a coat to show the referee it wasn’t cold!
“Mark 1 Hire also provided pitch heaters at very short notice, so we would also like to thank them for their efforts.
“We were delighted to get the game ahead, and without those I have just mentioned, it may not have happened. I should also thank all the supporters for turning up in such harsh conditions providing that extra element that has got us through to the next round.”
