‘The keeper conceded a corner from his own kick out’: Strong winds force match between Arbroath and Stranraer to be abandoned

ARBROATH’S match against Stranraer in League One has been abandoned due to strong winds.

The teams played just 12 minutes of the game at Gayfield before referee Craig Napier called a halt to proceedings.

The blustery conditions at the exposed ground, which lies just yards from the North Sea, were reported to be causing havoc with the game.

A tweet from Stranraer said: “Arbroath keeper Darren Jamieson just conceded a Stranraer corner from his own kick out, with the wind carrying the ball out of play… Kyle Turner’s cross blows over for a goal kick.”

A statement from Arbroath said: “We apologise to both sets of supporters who travelled to the game today.

“The game was deemed playable at 1pm and 2pm but succumbed to the wind.

“The game will now be replayed this Tuesday with a 7.45pm kick off.”

The score was 0-0 when the match was called off, with Stranraer facing another round trip of over 360 miles for the rescheduled fixture.

Gusts are set to continue this weekend as Storm Erik blows across the country, bringing winds of around 70mph to some parts and causing delays on the transport network.
