Feel the pin striking the balloon

I think that’s how it feels today.

In recent years we’ve had the Aylesbury, Rotherham and Barrow games but it’s hard to remember the amount of excitement generated ahead of today’s postponed match at Dartford.

We saw coach bookings reach higher levels than any game of recent years, people booked in for one of Pauline’s excellent breakfasts and expectations of anything between 300-500 fans travelling round the M25. And then the weather intervened. My twitter timeline this morning before 10.00 was more like a constant prayer for a hot micro climate to settle over Princes Park – but mother nature had the last laugh.

I imagine that only a tiny handful of games below the Premier League will survive today so it can hardly be a surprise but nevertheless the sense of disappointment is palpable and in the end today goes down as one of the big disappointments.

Will the game be on this Tuesday with the snow forecast? Maybe.

Whether it is or not, it won’t be the same occasion as it would have been today. But we are still in the competition, we have as much chance of getting something whenever the game is played, we will have players back and we will keep believing.
