|QK Southampton's snowy welcome sign.|
QK applied for promotion to the Wessex League last season, but were denied on the grounds that they have no floodlights, no seats and no covered spectator facilities - all of which would cost a great deal of money, and would doubtless either be stolen, broken or set on fire within weeks of being erected anyway.
So, plenty of disadvantages playing here. One advantage for me, however, is that it's easy to walk around and take photos, so when the snow fell this weekend, it was the obvious destination for me and my camera. This is what I found...
|Snow melting outside the rock solid, burglar-proof, fireproof container where the groundsman's equipment is kept. Beyond that, QK's café/changing room area, equally well-protected.|
|Padlocked goalpost in the snow.|
|Millbrook Towers, and what appears to be smoke rising from two fires on the estate.|
