Fans on nightshift to save The Lane
Saturday 23rd March 2013, 10:12AM GMT.
Guernsey FC fans rose to the occasion last night, taking it in turns to operate pitch driers throughout the night in an effort to make the Footes Lane ground playable for today’s FA Vase semi-final against Spennymoor Town.
The club put out an appeal on the Twitter network at about 11pm calling for volunteers: ‘SOS: We need 2 volunteers every 2 hours to push the driers at Footes Lane throughout the night’.
A couple of hours later the slots were filled.
Work continues this morning and the match is still scheduled to kick off at 3pm.
‘Lets hope we can match the performance of those off the pitch on the pitch’ Tweeted Guernsey FC’s Dominic Heaume after last night’s efforts.
