Pitch Inspection Tomorrow

A club statement on gmfc.net has confirmed that there will be an early morning pitch inspection to determine whether or not tomorrow's First Division clash with Dunfermline Athletic will go ahead.

With snow falling in Inverclyde most of Wednesday and Thursday, the fixture appeared to be in serious doubt. However, the snow fall has been followed by heavy rain and this started around about 5pm yesterday. Fortunately, the only areas that seemed to have been affected by the snow were high lying areas such as Overton, Grieve Road, Leven Road and Devol. I was in the town centre yesterday and you wouldn't even have known it was snowing anywhere else.

The tone of the club's post suggests that they are hopeful that the game will go ahead. "The condition of the pitch has improved greatly over the last 24 hours, however the inspection has been planned in advance as a precaution due to the changeable weather conditions and so that a final decision can be made in adequate time for both Clubs and supporters."

The post also indicated that the result of the inspection will be posted on the website around about 10am. The inspection is expected to be carried out at 9.30am.

Ton groundsman Mark Farrell (pictured) has asked for help to remove the covers tomorrow morning. Anyone who is available to help should turn up at Cappielow for 9am.
