Queens Match With Brechin Doubtful

Last updated : 24 January 2013 By Queens MAD


The Second Division match between Brechin City and Queen of the South on Saturday is unlikely to go ahead.... REPORTS THE BBC 

The Angus club's Glebe Park pitch is currently under as much as nine inches of snow, with further snow forecast for the area on Thursday.

"It has to be considered very unlikely that Glebe Park will be playable," said a statement on the Queen of the South website.

Six Scottish Football League matches were called off last weekend.

Meanwhile, fellow Angus club Forfar Athletic have asked local farmers to supply a tractor and trailer, as they have run out of room to put cleared snow.

The Loons' artificial surface at Station Park has been repeatedly cleared, but banks of snow now surround the pitch.

A Forfar spokesman said: "We now have a problem to overcome which is where do we put any fresh snow as there is no space left?"

Forfar's next scheduled home match is on 16 February.
