Remnants vs. Fen Ditton

Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Fitzwilliam College

Match cancelled.

Given yesterday's rain, it would be natural to assume that today's match was also cancelled due to the weather. However the pitch had dried enough by this afternoon that, barring further rain, our match against Fen Ditton could have gone ahead. What it couldn't go ahead with, however, was the Fen Ditton players, of which there were only "three or four" available, the rest having "gone on holiday". These quotes are from a message left on Daniel's mobile on Sunday; unfortunately the message wasn't noticed until Wednesday afternoon (and nobody from Fen Ditton thought to call again when there was no reply, presumably just assuming the message had been received). Still, at least there was time to let everybody know the game was off, even if there was no chance of organising alternative opposition (although, in the end, the rain probably would have done for the game anyway).
