Last month was one of the wettest Decembers in recent years. Despite this all Lawford home fixtures went ahead without interruption. Many other local clubs called off games on more than one weekend. Thanks to the hard work of Lloyd Bellett, Geoff Cone, Dave Atton, Steve Rand and Jason Tilstone, the School Lane pitches were playable for all our scheduled games.
The Saturday before Christmas was a real test given heavy rain both that morning and during the preceding few days. With the Reserves recording a 4-0 victory over St. Oysth, the Essex & Suffolk Border League made special mention to our groundsman, describing the pitch as “excellent” and their tireless work as a “huge credit to grassroots football.” Well done guys.
