WASHED OUT: Terras’ chairman Nigel Biddlecombe at a sodden Bob Lucas Stadium

First published in Sport by

THE Terras were victims of the wet weather on Saturday but Brendon King is hoping the repercussions will eventually work out in his side’s favour.

Weymouth fancied their chances against unbeaten Leamington in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division but the playing surface at the Bob Lucas Stadium was deemed unplayable.

Terras’ boss King explained: “There was not a lot we could do about it. Once the elements take hold it is then out of our control.

“It was disappointing because we were really looking forward to the game and fancied our chances of getting a result.

“The reality now is that Leamington will have to come down here on a Tuesday night later in the season, which I am sure they are not going to like, so hopefully it will work in our favour.

“On the down side though, it does mean Kyle Critchell will not be back for the trip to Bedford Town on Saturday.

“He still has two games to serve of a three-match suspension, which means he will not return now until next Tuesday night’s trip to Chesham United.”

The Terras are back in action tomorrow night when they host Portland United in the Dorset Senior Cup (7.45pm).

King added: “It is good we have that match tomorrow because it will allow us to get out there and work on a few things. The last thing you really want at this stage is to go a couple of weeks without any game time.”
