New Date For Preston Trip

Shire’s one outstanding postponed Lowland League game this season now has a new date.

The trip to face bottom side Preston Athletic at Pennypit Park has been re-arranged for Saturday 1st April with a 3:00pm kick-off.


The match was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 4th February, but heavy overnight rain made the pitch unplayable and an early morning pitch inspection confirmed the game’s postponement.

The new date has been issued by Lowland League officials alongside a whole raft of alternative fixture dates and times for the matches postponed by the weather, and other circumstances, throughout the season so far.

Shire, with only one outstanding game to be re-arranged, as among the least-affected teams.
