Hows Whitehills pitch looking for Saturday??

That's why I asked question DF there's been a lot more rain in Rosewell than there was for the Spartans game last Saturday so I'd imagine very doubtful at this stage though I'm sure they will do they're best up there.

After me saying it would definitely be on last week I should maybe keep ma mooth shut but update I got was the park remains soft. Forecast shows spells of heavy rain over the next few days and of course typically that it's to hose it doon on Saturday. There will be a update on the pitch from the club tomorrow afternoon.

That's right NB, think these ties alone still have priority.

It's the point of the season when everyone gets to feel like Juniors for a couple of weeks...

Fairer today, but considering the forecast, sounds like you lot may need to don your Rosewellington boots 8).

I'll do a Hibee Jibee :P ...

Latest from WW ...

Weekend Preview ... This Saturday we are scheduled to host East of Scotland League side Duns at Ferguson Park for the first ever time. Kick off is at 2pm in the 2nd round of the South Challenge Cup.

Once again though we are at the mercy of the weather and the forecast rain tomorrow means that a Saturday morning pitch inspection will likely be needed.

What should definitely go ahead though is our U20s fixture with Edusport Academy tomorrow night. Kick off is 7.45pm at the Lasswade Centre.

kind of hoping our game will be off as the thought of standing at Saughton Enclosure in this weather is not an enticing one...

I fear it will be off along with a lot of others.I'd expect quite a few senior games to be off as well. :(

Taking in the Edusport - Star game tonight. I've started to get to Edu games when possible over the past few months. Having saw them regularly this season and having taken in the Star - Colts game the other weekend, I reckon this could be a really good/close game tonight if Edu have a strong team out. I've been impressed with them since I started to watch them and I thought Star were very poor against Colts. Definitely got the potential to be a good game tonight.

Quite a number on 3G, tbf, and some good drainers (e.g. Peffermill).

Unconfirmed report from SOSL sub-forum that Upper Annandale v BSC Glasgow is off.

Also - Ahoy! Any news from the Water Polo Grounds, Carnethie Street? Was thinking about taking in Whitehill-Duns tomorrow.
