As Storm Getrude sweeps across Wales, the Rhondda Bulldogs are set for more frustration as Saturday’s (30 January) match with Afan Lido at Ynys Park is increasingly in doubt.
Ton Pentre have not played home since the defeat to Aberbargoed Buds on 24 October 2015 and the heavy rain throughout Thursday and Friday looks set to waterlog the pitch at Ynys Park once again.
“It’s such a frustrating situation,” said a spokesperson for the Bulldogs. “Due to the inclement weather conditions we have ben unable to get a run of games together since October last year.”
Since that Aberbargoed Buds match, the Bulldogs have only played three League games and one League Cup encounter, all of which were away from Ynys Park.
Lee Phillips, Ton Pentre manager, said: “We had a fantastic win against Monmouth Town last week and we’d like to get straight back on the pitch this week to pick up where we left off. However, if the weather is the winner, any momentum we may have had could be lost.
“It’s incredibly frustrating for not only myself but the player and fans too. Everyone just wants to play for and watch their team.”
A pitch inspection will carried out at Ynys Park from 9.00am on Saturday morning and the outcome will be communicated across Facebook, Twitter and tonpentreafc.com.
