F3 Derby to go ahead
The F3 Derby that is scheduled to be played at McDonald Jones Stadium today will currently go ahead as scheduled following a venue inspection at 10am this morning by the key stakeholders.
FFA Head of Leagues, Greg O’Rourke, said that the playing surface had held up well over the weekend and is suitable for the match to be played.
“Based on the condition of the field of play and the prevailing weather conditions in the area, we are currently able to proceed with the match as scheduled,” said O’Rourke.
“We will formally reinspect the pitch at 2:30pm, being 90 minutes before kick-off. Given the current conditions in the Sydney basin, if that weather was to move north and the weather conditions in the Hunter region deteriorate, we would need to reassess. As such, to be prudent, a second inspection has been formally arranged for that time,” concluded O’Rourke.
