I write about music and football

I had the James song "Sometimes" washing through my mind as the heavens opened during Marine's match with Grantham.  

For 20 solid minutes the gales swept in from Liverpool Bay and a torrential downpour left the pitch unplayable.

The players swam on for a full 15 minutes in the worst football playing conditions I have ever seen.

The gallant Marine fans remained stood in the open-air Crosender Road end getting a right battering from the elements.

At half-time, with Marine trailing 1-2, the game was abandoned.

Scroll down for images from yesterday and then the James video Sometimes.
