    What a strange circumstance, groundsman sacked after the Southend United game was called off due to a frozen pitch.

    Unless their pitch has often been judged to be a bit ropey and only just playable and this is the final straw?

    Only thing I can think of that you could do to mitigate the freezing of the pitch is to make sure you weren't over watering and so trying to achieve a dry environment so you got some frost, but no frozen over surface. Then again if freezing mist descends..not sure what you'd be able to do.

    "People generally lose their position as a result of not doing their job," said a club statement.

    Incredible :lol: There has to be more to this story if they're coming out with a statement like that. Maybe he was a **** employee and they were looking for an excuse to fire him?
