Livingston confirm postponement of Scottish Premiership match with Hamilton

Livingston have confirmed that tonight’s Scottish Premiership match with Hamilton has been postponed due to a snow covered pitch.

Three to four inches of snow fell on Monday night, with more falling on Tuesday, leaving the pitch at the Tony Macaroni Arena covered with over eight inches of snow.

Livi attempted to clear an area in the car park and were left with a 6ft pile of snow, with the club saying there is not enough room around the pitch to clear the amount of snow from the playing surface.

A new date for the fixture has yet to be confirmed.

A club statement read: “Livingston FC regretfully announce that tonight’s Premiership clash against Hamilton Academical FC has been postponed due to the heavy snowfall of recent days. 

“With between 3 & 4 inches of snowfall on Monday night and another 4 to 5 inches last night, the park has over 8 inches of snow currently lying on it, with more in other areas.

“Trying to clear that amount of snow from the park is near impossible in the timescales involved and there is so much snow on the park that there is physically not enough room at the edges of the pitch to clear it to. A 15-metre test run in the car park left a 6ft snow pile – a clear indication that the issue would be the same at pitch side.

“As soon as a rescheduled date has been confirmed, we’ll be sure to update you all on the club website and social media channels.”
