PITCH: No problems so far

23 March 2013

Brunton Park in good condition

Carlisle United Football Club are pleased to report that the pitch, stadium and stadium approaches are all clear of snow ahead of today's home fixture against Yeovil Town.

Heavy snowfall has affected most of the country over the course of the last 36 hours but the City of Carlisle has, once again, missed the worst of the bad weather.

"We were in early to check the situation because it did look at one point through the night that we were going to face a few problems," media officer Andy Hall said.

"However, the snow hasn't caught and the playing surface is in good condition. There are no deposits of snow of any note on the seats or terracing, and the area around the ground is also clear.

"With that in mind we have to say that the game is not in doubt at this moment in time."

"However, we do have to keep an eye on the weather as we go through the day," he continued. "There are still weather warnings in place for the region and more snow is expected. If the city was to be on the receiving end of a prolonged period of heavy snowfall then we would obviously have to review the situation as it developed.

"We would also echo the message from the authorities and ask people to take care as they travel to the game this afternoon. Please check and plan your journey accordingly because some of the areas surrounding the city have been hit quite badly."
