    Not really surprising. Pitch was used for two games on Sunday, and with three more to come this week, then there must be concerns on how it will hold up. Have the FA and Hastings agreed to the postponement?

    Is that Palace game definitely on pettyboy? Might go down for a long lunch break...!

    Palace have confirmed via Twitter that Thursday's game is free admission.

    Inspection done by a suitably qualified referee, after which it's got nothing to do with FA or Hastings.

    Easy with hindsight given the torrential rain over here in West London but believe weather warnings had been issued for this by the Met Office and so Hastings United must have been relieved they didn’t have to make a long journey that had a very good chance of being all in vain... What does surprise me is that TWO games were played on the main pitch on Sunday ahead of three scheduled games this week and with the forecast heavy rain...

    Easy mistake to make if they do things differently at Peckham Town...:D

    Generally best to keep an eye on the Club Twitter account - that's where any postponements/cancellations will be announced first.

    Does anyone know if Palace U23's are going to play regular matches at Champion Hill or is this a one off? They played several matches there a couple of seasons ago and I quite enjoyed going to watch them.

    Best to keep an eye on the clubs twitter account, as that appears to be the only place to get information...

    Looks like it's just their home Cup games at Champion Hill at present. Middlesbrough PL2 in December and Burnley U23 in February to come then.

    There has been 10 articles on the website in the last week alone, and 33 since start of September, with a whole range of information. What's missing do you think?
