After floods and cancellation Brechin fans say: ‘Gie’s a game!’

Brechin City are having to endure a frustrating spell on the sidelines, putting their ambitions of edging off the bottom of League One on hold.

The north east of Scotland was hit by storms over the weekend, meaning the club’s scheduled fixture with Forfar Athletic had to be called off.

The two clubs occupy the bottom spaces in the league, and Brechin targeted the game to claw back the three point advantage Forfar Athletic have on them.However, a persistent downfall meant Glebe Park was simply unable to host the match.

In a statement, the club said: “Despite the efforts of our groundsman, who vertidrained the whole pitch to 10 inches, the sheer volume of rainfall in the north east was too much as evidenced by the recent flooding and evacuations. Our thoughts are with those that have suffered and have much work yet to do.”

But double frustration has been added to that call off.

This weekend Brechin will again be out of action due to other clubs’ Scottish Cup involvement.

The next time Darren Dods’ side will play competitively will be on January 16 when they travel into the central belt to face Stenhousemuir at Ochilview.

Long-term injury victim Ross Perry will still be absent from the side.

The Brechin City Supporters Club will be running a bus to this match which will depart from St Ninians Square at 11.30am. Contact William on 07925 227826 if you wish to book a seat or leave your name on the BCFC Supporters Club’s Facebook page.
