Rangers at Gayfield could cause problems for darts

Arbroath and District Darts League committee has recognised that there may be a problem with the fixtures for Monday, November 25.

Arbroath FC will be at home that night against Rangers and this may mean certain pubs will be far busier than normal due to the game also being shown live on television. It may cause some teams to be short of players due to attendance at the game or working at it in the case of some teams.

The committee has decided that if you require to have your fixture moved to Wednesday, November 27, then in the first place contact the captain of the team you are playing and get a signature confirming they are happy to move fixture, then bring this to Colin Watt at The Newgate prior to the game on November 18, or to the Station Bar during that evening.

This is so that the correct fixtures can be sent to the Herald on the Tuesday.
