With the bridge of don v fauldhouse game off tomorrow due to fox holes on the pitch can anyone think of any other odd reasons for games being off


3 or 4 seasons ago Linlithgow Rose had a poor run of form and several injuries and were due to play Bo’ness but called the game off citing a waterlogged pitch despite there being a minimal amount of rain the night before, games having gone ahead at Linlithgow in far worse conditions and also several other games going ahead a mere few miles away. There was also a rumour that posts were made and deleted off of Facebook in which someone walking by Prestonfield had seen the pitch being hosed on the Friday afternoon.

Wasn't last season, was a few years ago against stenny

Game involving colville park last season off as somebody chopped down the nets. Sure there was a video doing the rounds of somebody involved with colville bragging about doing it to get the game called off,? Wont get away with that in the juniors

Pitch markings being incorrect. A game several years ago at the very start of the season saw the penalty area being lined 12 yards, rather than 18 yards out. Referee spotted it, although both teams were just beginning to warm up.

A South Of Scotland game was called off because they could't guarantee player safety. One of the players was having an affair with an opponents wife and the rumour was he was going to get battered

Slightly smaller scale than that. Was that not a team mate's wife rather than an opponent.

Can you imagine Icardi running amok in the SOS

Found a link about it

Two matches have been called off at Glencairn due to police incidents right outside the ground on the morning of the game, one being a murder.

Watching the glens can be murder at times

Ex-junior but Jeanfield had a game postoponed last season as they had 3 (I think) players on international duty with the Scotland futsal team (Perth is the main hub for futsal in Scotland)

Not so much an exact fit for this thread but I remember Bankies played Perthshire in a sectional cup game, about 150 Bankies fans paying £6 in, bought raffle tickets etc and then the next day Perthshire announced they’d just discovered they couldnt run that season and were taking a year out and they absolutely didn’t know before they played us... lol.

A good few tears ago, Linlithgow v Cumnock was postponed a good few times, initially due to frozen pitch.
After the weather changed there was a rumour going around that the Rose would try and get the game off again as one of their better players was injured .

Cue a man, Cumnock legend to boot, who got a van and a pump and some hoses and went to Linlithgow , with some other guys to pump water away from the ground.

Game went ahead and Cumnock won and went into next round of the cup

Ahhhh memories !!!!!
