SWINDON TOWN: Fans asked to help clear snow at County Ground
7:18pm Friday 18th January 2013 in Sport
SWINDON Town are still asking for fans who are able to make it safely to the County Ground to help move snow off the playing surface.
Following Friday's blizzards, groundstaff, office staff, management and Paolo Di Canio himself have been joined by supporters with wheelbarrows and shovels in an effort to ensure tomorrow's scheduled League One clash with Shrewsbury goes ahead.
An 8am pitch inspection has been scheduled for tomorrow morning but, with frost covers having sat on the County Ground pitch for the best part of a week, there should be no problem in the surface being fit for purpose provided the snow is shifted from on top.
The clearing effort will go on through the night if necessary, with the floodlights now on, and fans who wish to help should enter the ground via gate E1 between the Town End and the Arkell's Stand.
The club has also requested that supporters bring shovels and in particular wheelbarrows along to help move the snow.
