The Elgin City v Cowdenbeath game has been called off because the pitch is too dry! Can't remember that happening before.

Team bus had to return via Aberdeen due to the smash on the A9 involving the Ross County fans. Pheasant hits bus and smashes window. Some day out. Better than being at Ayr mind you.

No rain in Elgin for 9 weeks according to BBC "Off The Ball" chat.

That is DEFINATELY a first !!!

When you think about it seriously - the home club should have called for an official inspection yesterday, it's not as if the conditions suddenly changed for the worse.

The game was called off due to an excessively stoney pitch. Edinburgh City played up there last week and complained to the ref who did nothing about it. Today’s ref inspected the pitch at 2pm and deemed it unplayable due to the stones. Peter Houston was talking about it on Sportsound this afternoon as he’s friendly with a couple of the Edinburgh City backroom staff. Nobody seemed to know what had been put on the pitch to make it like that.

Have seen the photos. Nothing a good brush and a visit from the Fire Service couldn’t cure.

"I can do many things, but I can't make it rain."

Brilliant... Obviously the hosepipe hasn't reached Elgin yet...

"Nobody seemed to know what had been put on the pitch to make it like that."

Sounds more like a case of what had not been put on the playing surface ?
