Scottish friendly matches called off due to rain

Saturday's friendly matches between Hibernian and Barnsley and Annan Athletic and Queen of the South have been called off.

Heavy overnight rain has made the Galabank Stadium pitch unplayable.

And a massive downpour in Leith caused the late abandonment of Hibs' clash with Barnsley with the Easter Road surface deemed too dangerous for play.

"Hibernian would like to apologise for any inconvenience experienced," read a statement on the Hibernian website.

"Refunds for tickets purchased will be immediately available via the ticket office."
