There was a very late postponement of the League of Ireland Premier Division match last night between Finn Harps and St. Patrick’s Athletic after referee Tommy Connolly deemed a small section of the Finn Park pitch at the river end too wet and thus unsafe for the game to go ahead.
There had been heavy rain in Ballybofey during the afternoon. Despite work by the club’s ground staff Mr Connolly called the game off at around 7.15.
Like Buckley, the Harps camp accepted the decision of the referee, although many present did feel the pitch was playable.
Aidan Campbell, Finn Harps commercial officer, gave his reaction.
