First division final back on

GLADSTONE'S football finals will go ahead as originally scheduled after the presiding referees deemed the Wolves ground fit for play yesterday afternoon.

“They've had a look at the field and they believe it's fine,” a Football Gladstone representative said.

The federation announced on Thursday night that games would be postponed due to recent heavy rain, but the Wolves ground looked in pristine condition yesterday with only one minor wet patch on the far touch line.

“I just pushed it off the sideline with a squeegee,” Wolves president Brian Niven said.

The ground was firm underfoot a day out from the decider and Niven said the first-rate field was more than ready to accommodate tonight's three finals.

“It's a bit wet but it will hold up all right,” he said.

“The field has been marked and it's all ready to go. All we need is a big crowd.”
