Cowdenbeath v Rangers (30/01/2019)

PostedJanuary 25, 2019

Cowdenbeath v Rangers William Hill Scottish Cup 4th Round
Wednesday 30 January at Central Park @ 7.45pm

Cowdenbeath FC have been actively involved in discussions this week with both the SFA and Rangers as we sought to devise a plan to best ensure Wednesday's rearranged match can go ahead as scheduled. All three parties were represented at Central Park today and agreed that the pitch was indeed now fully playable. Forecast weather conditions going in to tomorrow will also continue to benefit the pitch. Thereafter some colder weather is forecast in the run up to the game and that means that frost protection measures certainly need to be undertaken. To that end, with the hands on assistance and guidance of the SFA, Cowdenbeath FC and Rangers FC agreed to jointly fund a pitch protection system to be installed and utilised at Central Park this weekend. A cover system is now being brought in to fully protect the pitch. A heating system will then be deployed to introduce warm air underneath these covers which will continuously incubate the pitch plus also increase soil temperature and tolerance even after cover removal a few hours before kick off.

Grateful thanks go to the SFA and Rangers for working closely with us on this initiative for the benefit of all parties.
