Club Statement following today`s waterlogged pitch.
Following the cancellation of this afternoon’s match against Dundee United, DAFC would like to apologise to all home and away supporters who have been inconvenienced by the call off at 1.30pm.
Our ground staff and officials have been in since 8.30am this morning, and we have been in dialogue with the SPFL since then. The weather conditions proved extremely difficult to predict, with snow, sleet and then rain causing our pitch to ultimately become waterlogged, despite preparatory work being carried out yesterday.
We requested the match referee to attend early to inspect the pitch, and at that point he had unfortunately no other option than to cancel the match.
The date for the rearranged fixture will be announced in due course.
