Ashington have been trying to schedule matches with Marske United, however, every time they have schedule the match, the weather has become a large obstacle for every team in the league. This was the ninth successive postponed match, which has caused frustration and anger for every player, fan and coach associated with Ashington Football Club
Six weeks have gone by since any competitive football games have taken place. Every sportsperson knows that you need to compete on a weekly basis in order to perform and win, hence why the large football teams travel and compete in the off-season.
This winter has had one of the worst downpours of rain, and the same could happen every year, which is why forward thinkers are changing their playing surface to artificial. Skinner mentioned to News Post Leader in an interview that over the past 20 years, the longest time he hasn’t been able to coach was two and a half weeks, and that was due to heavy snow. So understandably, he is shocked that rain has had this affect on the grass.
Artificial grass is not only long lasting, but games can be played on the surface regardless of the weather. This is a large benefit to lower league clubs, as many of the players have full time jobs and work their social schedule around the fixtures. By having consistency in their life, and consistency in their matches, they will be able to relax, be focused and play the sport they love weekly.
