Pittodrie amends press plans

JOURNALISTS filing their match reports from Aberdeen FC have been saved from the threat of having to do so in bad weather, following a change in plans.

On Wednesday, Spike reported plans by the football club, to turn its press room into an extension of the players’ lounge; thus leaving hacks facing the prospect of having to file their copy from the back row of the Pittodrie stadium main stand – in potentially inhospitable weather.

But it seems they can now file indoors: from three enclosed executive boxes at the back of the main stand.
