Nearly called my game off today on safety grounds as the pitch was littered with bits of hard plastic after the clubs bonfire night firework display. Both teams walked the pitch for 15 minutes before the kickoff ruining both their warm ups picking up hundreds of pieces. Whilst we were confident we'd got most of it and the captains were happy to play I did warn them if I though any injury was due to plastic I would immediately call the game off. Fortunately no injuries and a good game 19-36.

The organisers need a stiff talking to after that surely. Bits of compressed card or paper will just degrade, but sharp bits of "hard plastic" is nasty stuff.

We had a firework display Friday night at the cub, great night was had by all. Saturday morning we had over 60 volunteers pitch walk all 5 pitches, only took 30 mins. Better organisation needed I feel !
