Prospects of play tomorrow are good

It is looking very hopeful that we will play our league game against Folkestone Invicta tomorrow afternoon. With temperatures at Vale Farm well above freezing today, and not expected to drop below freezing overnight, there are currently no plans for a pitch inspection.

Folkestone are finding life tough in their first season back in the Premier Division and currently lie in 18th place with 15 points from 17 games, and their most recent game was on Tuesday evening when they drew 0-0 with Horsham.

We last met in the 2007/08 season when we won 4-0 at Folkestone, goals coming from Wayne O'Sullivan (2), Casey Maclaren and Brian Haule, whilst both Maclaren and Haule were on target in the 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture.

Gary McCann will be keen that we get a good result to ensure that we don't lose touch with the play-off chasers, and your support in cheering the players on will be crucial.

There are no major engineering works on the London Underground that are likely to affect journeys to Vale Farm. The Bakerloo, Piccadilly and London Overground lines should all be operating a normal service. If you are travelling by car, please allow some extra time as roads are likely to be busy in the Wembley and Harrow areas due to Christmas shopping crowds.

Kick off at Vale Farm will be at 3.00pm, the bar will be open from 12.00pm and the turnstiles from 2.00pm.

Should the weather situation change, we will of course update the website and postponement hotline as normal, but otherwise it is safe to assume that the game is going ahead.
