Red Hot Gunners Can’t Escape The Big Freeze

Despite the best efforts of club staff, tonight’s Premiership fixture between Arsenal & Bolton Wanderers has been postponed after heavy snow engulfed the Highbury & Islington area of north London.

The pitch at the Emirates Stadium was deemed playable, but there are huge concerns regarding the safety of fans with regards to transport as well as the areas surrounding the ground.

An official statement released by the club confirmed that a rearranged date for the fixture will be announced in due course, with all purchased tickets remaining valid.

“Despite making every effort to stage tonight’s match against Bolton Wanderers, the sudden and unpredicted adverse change in weather conditions in the Highbury area has left us no choice but to postpone the fixture.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and wish to state that this decision was not made lightly and supporters’ safety and travel arrangements were major factors in our thinking.

“All tickets currently held will be valid for the re-arranged fixture.”

The Gunners aren’t the only side to be affected by the adverse weather conditions sweeping across the United Kingdom; both Carling Cup semi-finals were postponed yesterday, as well as an array of other sporting events including rugby and race meetings.
