Defective sprinkler not responsible for UCD vs Derry postponement

UCD AFC's Premier Division clash with Derry City has been called off

UCD AFC’s home fixture against Derry City has been postponed. The game which was scheduled to be played this evening at 7.45 at the Belfield Bowl was abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch following a pitch inspection this afternoon. In a post on twitter UCD AFC stated a new date for the fixture will be announced in due course and that ticket holders will be contacted separately.

The  UCD AFC press office has confirmed to the University Observer that the sprinkler which disrupted proceedings against Shelbourne a fortnight ago had no part to play in the pitch's poor condition. Ticket holders will be entitled to a refund in line with normal policies and will also be entitled to transfer the ticket to the rescheduled fixture.
