Proper football weather wasn't it...
So matchday: I haven't done a blog for a while as I've been doing YouTube vlogs... But it's about time for a blog
Today we were away to Molesley and I was looking forward to another BogEnd away day... Seeing as it's close to the River Thames it can get flooded quite quickly round there, and with the Weather forecast saying it was going to rain, what could possibly go wrong?
Todays opponents Molesley only got 14 people in attendance for their game vs Cheshunt earlier in the season, so it was quite obvious that we were going to outnumber the home side support wise. When we arrived at Molesley's ground Walton Road it started to piss down with rain.
Molesley's bar was quite nice and they were a very welcoming club. When we walked into the ground the lady on the turnstyle very kindly gave me a free chocolate. We were in the ground and it continued to piss down with rain. I went to get my chips and they were quite nice.
So the teams come out with the Terrors playing in Plum (not pink) and we went behind the goal. There was a bus shelter at both end at Molesley's ground and it was just big enough the fit the travelling Bogend...
After a minute Daryl Coleman scored the give the Terrors the lead... Clearly the football web pages app had one to many beers and said that the Terrors were 2-0 up after 3 minutes... We hadn't scored a second goal so clearly Football web pages were making up goals...
The first half continued with Tooting having a few more chances with nothing coming from them. So the half time whistle went with Tooting leading and the rain coming down.
We stayed in the bar at half time to keep out of the horrible rain. We stood behind the goal in the second half waiting for the teams to come out. The referee was doing a pitch inspection to see if the pitch was playable for the game to continue.
But the rain continued to come down so the referee decided it was not playable so the game was Abandoned. 'Were Tooting And Mitcham, we'll play in the rain' the Tooting fans chanted. But it came to no good as the game was Abandoned with Tooting leading 1-0 at the time.
Next week we are away to Chipstead and hopefully we will get to see a full 90 minute game.
