ALBA final put back to next year

The Scottish Football League has confirmed that there will be no attempt to play the ALBA Challenge Cup Final between Queen of the South and Ross County this weekend, with the match likely to be rescheduled for March or April.

The game which was originally scheduled for last Sunday, was called off more than 24 hours earlier due to the snow that was engulfing Scotland, and the SFL had originally looked to invoke their contingency plan and have the game played this weekend.

Operations Director David Thomson said: "After consultation with the clubs and police, as well as looking at predicted weather conditions, the game has been postponed until 2011."

The date has still to be fixed, and tickets already purchased remaining valid for the re- arranged game.

Meanwhile, First Division leaders Raith Rovers have confirmed that on-loan Hearts striker Jamie Mole will return to the Tynecastle club in early January. Stark's Park manager John McGlynn said: "Under the terms of his loan deal Jamie has to go back to Hearts. That frees up some money from our budget and I will be keen to get someone else in."
