WOOFFERTON boss Dane Pearce will be praying to the weather gods this weekend in the hope his side can finally gain some momentum after a stunted start to their season.

The Herefordshire Division Two campaign began on the first weekend of September but – due to opponents cancelling at late notice or the weather – Woofferton have played just three league games.

Last Saturday’s hosts Ewyas Harold Reserves’ pitch was completely underwater and, now, Pearce hopes Woofferton’s surface holds up for this weekend’s game against Bartestree Reserves.

“It still feels like we’ve barely got going,” Pearce admitted. “We’ve only had three league games and it’s November already!

“It hasn’t been ideal but in the last couple of games we have played, it’s felt like we’ve been getting going so hopefully that will continue.”

Woofferton have won two and lost one of their three league games thus far – but that defeat came in the reverse fixture at Bartestree.

Pearce added: “It’s one we are looking forward to, albeit it would have been nice not to have had two games called off previous to it."
