Comets V Glasgow ALSO OFF!
Photo by Dave PayneSat 07 Apr 2018
Tonight's home meeting with Glasgow has been called off due to the weather.
With the weather forecast having changed significantly overnight, rain was set to arrive from noon onwards and continue through to early evening. With that in mind the decision was made shortly after 9:00am to postpone the fixture and prevent any un-necessary travelling.
This proved to be totally the correct decision as the predicted rain did indeed hit the stadium at precisely 12 noon and continued to fall throughout the day before eventually stopping around thirty minutes before the scheduled start; by which time the track was thoroughly waterlogged and was no longer fit for racing.
At present no agreement has been reached with Glasgow with regard to a re-staging date for this fixture, or the rained off fixture up at Glasgow.
We are hoping that these re-arranged dates can be agreed as soon as possible and once agreed we will announce them in due course.
