A FROZEN pitch put the stoppers on Rob Roy’s cup campaign at the weekend – but there was heart-warming news for Rabs fans after a new signing arrived at the club.

Adamslie Park was judged to be unplayable early on Saturday morning, meaning that the Kirkintilloch club’s game against Rosyth – in the 4th round of the Scottish Junior Cup – was postponed for a week.

Manager Jimmy Lindsay said: “It was pretty solid on Friday and just got worse overnight so there was no way we could play.

“It’s one of these things and now we’re just hoping for some warmer weather on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to thaw out the pitch.

“To be honest it’s in the lap of the gods at this stage.”

If the game does go ahead there might be a new face on the pitch, after the successful signing of Jason Crooks (24) from Albion Rovers.

Lindsay said: “We tried to get him 18 months ago and have been in touch since.

“He’s a good age and is clear to play immediately. Jason’s a different type of striker for us and I’m sure he will be an entertaining signing for the supporters.”

Meanwhile, injury-hit Scott Adam has chosen to leave Rabs for Ardrossan Rovers after becoming a dad.

Lindsay said: “He’s a young player and did well for us at the start of the season before injury kept him out of the team.

“He’s had a wee baby and travelling had become an issue for him.

“We never stand in the way of players if they want to leave and we wish him well for the future.”

Weather willing, Rabs will take on Rosyth at Adamslie Park on Saturday. Kick-off is 1.45pm.
