Daisy Duke, pubs with facebook and the Wigan Robins Weather Check
Double Daisy Duke
According to the ever so reliable metcheck we are told the forecast for Saturday in BL5 - the home of Daisy Hill - from 15.00hrs to 17.59hrs is:
2 degrees C but feeling -4 degrees C
3.44mm of Heavy Snow
(and the good news) Winds of just 8mph
So it'll be off then!
But if it's not then let's rejoice in this local derby of the Robins versus The Cutters (or Daisies)
A quaint name for a place adjoined to Cayed City but I digress: So what will we find there?
Well the gruesome Wanderers player Nicky Hunt might be home visiting relatives as I believe he was hatched there. There's also a decent cricket pitch - and home of Daisy Hill CC - near the ground.
Add to that the Daisy Hill Hotel that is also known as the Blue Lion and the place is buzzing. In fact the Daisy Hill Hotel that is also known as the Blue Lion has it's own facebook page. Whatever next a facebook page for the Bath Springs? In fact the Daisy Hill Hotel that is also known as the Blue Lion has a discussion on it's own facebook page about who should be barred from the pub. Now if the Bath Springs had it's own facebook page about who should be barred from the pub dare we even guess who might win that prize?
Probably me and I've only been in three times (and not known where I was the first time)...
And that's about all my research (ten minutes on google) tells me. As for the match who knows: Daisy Hill lie in 15th place with 15 points off 15th games which is pretty consistent in one way or another. In fact they they were our last opponents in the league - as way back on the 1st November a 4-2 victory (nil-nil with 22 minutes to go) to the Robins settled the score that day. And it was probably the worst 4-2 match anywhere this season but at least we saw some football... Last week Daisy Hill were beat 2-0 up at Holker Old Boys so we'll see...
Not the football ground
Did I say: "So it'll be off then"?
