As a goodwill gesture supporters of both teams attending the rescheduled fixture will gain entry for £5.

Pains me to say so but absolutely brilliant gesture by their BOD.

It's impressive how quickly they decided on that as well. We'd spend weeks dithering about.

I thought that clubs installed undersoil heating to ensure that matches were not cancelled due to frozen or snow covered pitches.

United must have set the thermostat too low for their undersoil heating when they switched it on last Thursday. This is not the first time that United have been caught out and had their home game at Tannadice postponed due to a frozen pitch despite having undersoil heating.

Blaming it on a lack of grass in the goalmouth.... I've got a spare bit of turf that cost me 4 quid out of B&Q if it helps get their games on.

Care In The a Community DSC

Sh !t they could'nae get their game on in the first place,you cannae knock how they've looked after both sets of fans with their swift response to an unfortunate situation though.A few other clubs,including our own,could learn a thing or two.

Dundee United F.C. - Gussie Park Re-development

Dundee United have recently confirmed plans to upgrade the surface at Gussie Park to a new state-of-the-art 3G pitch. SIS Pitches has been appointed to undertake the project by manufacturing and installing the turf at the club; however the surface will feature Bonar Yarns very own, high performance MN Ultra yarn.

SIS Pitches begin work next month as lead contractor, in a £300,000 re-development of the Club's flagship community facility. Bonar Yarns are a key partner in this development by supplying our specialist MN Ultra yarn, which is a fundamental part of the final manufactured football pitch.

This is an important project for Bonar Yarns and a major project in Scotland this year, following the woven

surface installed at Queen of the South back in the summer. Gussie Park is just minutes away from the Bonar Yarns Dundee factory, and will be a key flagship project to show staff and customers who visit.

Dundee United is forecasting a spring launch for the re-developed Gussie Park with schools, community groups, local youth teams, companies and public sector organisations all having the opportunity to benefit from playing on one of the best footballing surfaces in the world. The re-development of Gussie Park is a key strategic aim of the Club, investing some of the returns from its successful transfer market trading into the local community and economy. A significant proportion of the funding has also been contributed by Dundee United supporters' groups including ArabTRUST and the Federation of Dundee United Supporters' Clubs.

Providing a state-of-the-art training facility that can deliver benefits to both the club's youth players and the wider community, has been a long held ambition of the Chairman and Board of the club.

David Southern, General Manager at Dundee United Football Club said: "The centre point of this re-development will be a new FIFA 2* rated playing surface provided by SIS. It is a world class provision that is a fitting investment by the Club given the importance we place on the development of all ages of young players. After a rigorous tender process we elected SIS Pitches based on their world-wide experience in

manufacturing and fitting pitches everywhere from world cup venues through to club stadiums in leagues across the globe. We are also very conscious of our own roots in the community and it is an added bonus that the yarn for the 'grass' comes from Bonar Yarns which is on the doorstep of Gussie Park."

Dundee United Academy teams from Under 10s to Under 17s will now be centred at Gussie Park. The Club's nationwide renowned J League which is open to children from the age of five years old upwards will also resume activity from the first weekend in March. Gussie Park will also be available for private hire and as such is expected attract the attention of a number of teams from local companies and other work places who enjoy the recreational side of the game but also appreciate playing football on a first class surface.
