Preston Athletic v Threave Rovers

Preston Athletic would like apologise to all Groundhoppers and to players, supporters and officials of both Threave and Preston for the postponement of yesterday’s game. We did absolutely everything we could to get the game played but ultimately the decision not to proceed with the match was totally out of our control.  We believe we have created a first with a Groundhop game being postponed – not really a proud record to hold.  As a club we are devastated that the efforts of the Preston Athletic committee, Lowland League, Groundhop UK plus the well planned travel arrangements of many people (including those from Castle Douglas) were impacted adversely by the timing of the decision to cancel the match.
