THERE is more chance of seeing swimming than football at Woodmarsh this weekend, according to Trowbridge Town manager Paul King.

The pitch, which was unplayable for several months last campaign, has suffered following the recent snow and rain and tomorrow’s Hellenic League match against Clanfield is in serious doubt.

“There’s no hope of playing, I’ve never seen it so wet up there,” said King.

“I always go up there on a Friday and I might have to swim. If you’re looking for an outdoor swimming pool we’re probably the perfect place for it. The pitch is just not draining at the moment.”

Although King promised he would make a last ditch effort to get Woodmarsh ready, it looks likely it will be another Saturday of training for his players.

The Bees did not play last Saturday’s Soccer Kits PLUS Supplementary Cup home game against Letcombe due to the snow.

The Hellenic League have now scrapped the competition and King admitted, “That was a blessing in disguise.”

The Bees boss said he did not have any immediate worries about a series of Woodmarsh fixtures being postponed, and pointed out other sides were worse off.

He said: “I don’t have any concerns about it, maybe in three or four weeks I might do.

“There’s teams like Wootton who have only played 14 games and Lydney are really struggling with their pitch.”
