Football clubs who can spare their pitch could answer an SOS call from York City manager Martin Foyle.
The Minstermen boss has appealed for teams in York to lend his side their surface as they prepare for their FA Trophy quarter-final with Havant and Waterlooville on Saturday.
While the snow and wintry weather has cleared, City's Wigginton Road training ground is still unusable - and Foyle fears it is hurting his team's preparation.
With training work on the pitch so important to Foyle's managerial philosophy, the City boss is hoping he can borrow a suitable surface while Wigginton continues to be out of action.
And he hopes local teams who play on pitches with good drainage could step in and provide a solution.
Foyle said: "Our training pitch is so poor. It is just covered in water and clay. It is not ideal for what I want for the players. We can't pass the ball around. It is very hard with these facilities because we can't get any quality.
"I would like to put out an SOS to any local teams that have got a pitch we can borrow. We need a pitch with drainage as our facilities are terrible at the moment."
