Whitehill Welfare Game Off
Whitehill Welfare Game Postponed
Today's Scottish Cup tie against Whitehill Welfare is postponed due to a water-logged pitch. The Academy squad travelled as far as Perth last night and received the news this morning before leaving the hotel. A grade one referee inspected Ferguson Park less than an hour ago and confirmed that the game had no chance of going ahead due to the surface water on the park.
This is the second year in a row that the squad has travelled as far as Perth to suffer the disappointment and large financial cost of having to turn and come back home again. Last year the re-play at Brechin was also cancelled in similar circumstances.
It's also a massive disappointment for the Academy fans who travel to these games. We are aware that there are a lot of fans travelling to the game today and we have tried to contact as many of them as possible to let them know what's happening.
If you know anyone that is travelling to the game today can you please try to contact them to let them know that the game is definitely off.
