Rain (at £1.22/minute)

Monday 1st January 2018, 3.35pm (day 2,321)

Floodlights and rain, 1/1/18

2018 doesn’t get off to the greatest start, as our attempt to see a second football match in three days was thwarted by the weather; Accrington Stanley versus Morecambe being abandoned at half-time due to the rain. Although my suspicion is that the referee had a New Year’s hangover and just got pissed off with being drenched so couldn’t be bothered any more. During the half-time-interval-that-wasn’t, it in fact stopped raining. We, however, had paid £55 in total for two adult and one child’s entrance fees, so I make that £1.22/minute to watch some fourth-tier football that is now meaningless. They also suggest we should now pay another £25 to watch the replay. Previous positive feelings I had towards Accrington Stanley FC largely evaporated today.

    that is outrageous they want you to pay £25 for the replay! Are they trying to get an empty stadium for the replay?!

      So they say at the moment. There was some stink about this on Twitter last night however. So we will see if it stays. I suspect few Stanley fans are affected seeing as many will have season tickets; it will be Morecambe fans (and us few neutrals…) who end up paying it.

      Also to clarify it would be £25 for the three of us who went (£10 adults, £5 concessions for the replay). But it still should be nothing, if we can produce tickets for the original match, which already cost £55 for three.

        You’re right. I suspect they’ll eventually give in, but it should have been their intention to give you a free ticket from the start!
