Another blank weekend

Hendon and the Ryman League's troubled season took another turn for the worse last weekend as both suffered from inactivity. The apparently incessant rain on Wednesday and Thursday ensured that for the second consecutive weekend, none of Hendon's 6 teams managed to see action.

For the Ryman League, it was another bad story with 23 of 43 matches postponed. The League has called an EGM to discuss extending the season as clubs struggle to complete their schedule by Saturday 5 May. As of last Saturday, 137 matches remained to be played in the Premier Division (of which Hendon had 18) and 155 in Division 3 in just 6 weeks.

It is by no means certain that clubs, especially those that have been able to just about keep up with their games, will sanction the extension. This is especially true of a club that has only away games to play after 5 May; they will have to pay extra wages without any income to cover it. However, without an extension, Hendon are certain to have at least one spell of games on consecutive days or nights. The Ryman League has already given clubs permission to switch games from one venue to another.

With the situation being so fluid (no pun intended), Hendon's fans can get up-to-date news on the club's premium-rate infomation telephone line, the Greensline, 09066 555 836 (60p per minute at all times), as well as on here, the official website. Both the telephone line and the website are updated as soon as any changes to the schedule are made.
