AFC PORTCHESTER are hoping the bad weather quickly relents to allow them to kick on in the Wessex League premier division.
Manager Glenn Bridgman is happy with the improvements of his side this season.
He felt they would have banked three points against Lymington on Saturday.
Snow denied them that chance.
But while it may be stalling progress on the field, the bad weather is not wrecking the work going on off it.
Bridgman said: ‘I fancied our chances against Lymington, particularly as it was to be at our place.
‘Now all we can hope for is that the weather improves and we can play catch-up with our fixtures and continue making our point to all the other clubs in the league that we are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
‘Fortunately the snow won’t interfere with the new stand being erected.
‘The foundations are already in and it’s another improvement towards the club having one of the best grounds in the Wessex League.
‘It’s my job to produce a side that will match it.’
Many clubs will be playing catch-up with fixtures after the cold snap followed on from the rain that washed out the previous weekend’s action.
Bridgman added: ‘The way the weather is at the moment is certainly going to cause problems in fitting in matches unless the league extend the season.
‘It’s not the first time the lads have been disappointed not to be playing.’
