Wasted journey for Shipyard

Yesterday’s match against Heriot Watt University at Riccarton was abandoned after 35 minutes due to heavy snow with the students leading by one goal to nil. Somewhat surprisingly the pitch passed a morning inspection, however, on arrival it was clear that area’s of the pitch were unplayable with standing water in both goalmouths and also on a section of the pitch in front of the technical area’s. Furthermore, sections of the pitch were churned to mud as the players did their warm up prior to the match. The heavy snow, which was forecast, duly arrived not long after the match started and within minutes the lines were obliterated which forced the referee to call a halt to proceedings.
