Chairman's programme notes

"These are very thorough processes and carried out by an official who officiates at National League level. The inspection took place and discussions and evidence were provided to the match referee. He decided that he wanted to take further time for a final decision and inspect the pitch himself at 1.30pm. This meant that the full match processes (stewards, turnstiles etc) were to be actioned thus incurring costs."

Chairman's programme notes

"After overnight rain the pitch was notified by ground staff as waterlogged early on Saturday but obviously time could potentially improve matters. The league and match referee were immediately informed and a mid-morning pitch inspection was arranged."

Chairman's programme notes

"As Ebbsfleet were travelling up from Kent at 11am on the Friday they had asked for an update. The pitch was playable but we spoke to the match referee from the north west, who confirmed he would not be seeking to do an early inspection and therefore Ebbsfleet would travel north in the normal way."

Chairman's programme notes

"This does not in any way imply any criticism of ground staff who did a great job in getting the Chesterfield game on and whilst not an ideal surface the quality of football and entertainment was excellent on the night."

Chairman's programme notes

"We are currently having to manage our fixtures around having possibly the worst pitch in the top five divisions. Currently it is really not fit for purpose due to the drainage issues and overall pitch structure and the fact that it simoly cannot manage two codes of football and the number of fixtures it is capable of staging."

Chairman's programme notes

"It was extremely frustrating for all concerned that last Saturday's fixture against Ebbsfleet United was postponed. As a club we took totally unmerited criticism regarding the cancellation of the fixture at such late notice."
