Ahead of tomorrow's scheduled game against AFC Telford United, a small band of volunteers have been putting the pitch covers on since 7.45 this morning, due to the huge amount of rain that is forecast from lunchtime today until lunchtime tomorrow.
Our pitch covers are down ahead of tomorrow's game at home to @telfordutd.— Altrincham FC (@altrinchamfc) October 25, 2019
We are now appealing for more volunteers to brush the water off tomorrow morning.
10:30AM. Please bring a brush if you can.

To enable us to get these covers off tomorrow & hopefully get the match on, we will need a minimum of 20 volunteers to sweep the water off the covers & then remove them from the pitch.
If you can help, please come down to the J.Davidson Stadium at 10.30am....or as soon as possible afterwards & please bring a brush with you, if you have one.
We we will be very grateful for any helpers to try to get the game on!
