Livingston’s clash with Hamilton called off due to heavy snow Livingston FC

Livingston’s clash with Hamilton has been called off after the home side’s pitch was covered with more than eight inches of snow.

The Premiership clash due to take place on Wednesday at Almondvale will now be moved to a later date.

Heavy snowfall on Monday and Tuesday in West Lothian meant the pitch was left unplayable.

Livingston announced the decision on their website and social media channels saying attempts to clear the snow would be “near impossible” on such a short time scale.

The statement said: “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.”
