Ground­share has caused us prob­lems ad­mits Lovell

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

STEVE LOVELL says the ground­shar­ing agree­ment with Maid­stone is partly to blame for the num­ber of games Ash­ford have seen post­poned this sea­son.

Town have not played at Home­lands in Ry­man League Divi­sion 1 South since Oc­to­ber 24 and have had five home league games post­poned in a row af­ter last Wed­nes­day’s rel­e­ga­tion six-pointer against Whit­stable and Satur­day’s visit of Met Po­lice fell foul of the weather.

The prob­lem is an area in front of the main stand which is prov­ing al­most im­pos­si­ble to dry.

Lovell said: “It is very frus­trat­ing but there’s noth­ing we can do. The pitch has had 40 games played on it al­ready this sea­son with Maid­stone and our first teams, re­serves and youth sides. The ground­share hasn’t done us any favours.”

Town face at least 15 games in 56 days at the start of the new year, with Satur­day-mid­week-Satur­day

for

eight

con­sec­u­tive action weeks.

Toby Ash­more is three weeks from action and Paul Jones a fort­night away but keeper Scott Chalmers-Stevens could re­turn and Ross Mor­ley and Joe Fuller could fea­ture when Town re­turn to action at Leather­head on Satur­day.
