THE recent flood at Central Park has indeed caused extensive damage - unwelcome at any time but especially so during these Covid times.

Cowdenbeath certainly have a number of challenges on their hands at this point in time after the amount of water that crept under the front door at the ground in the early hours of Wednesday August 12 during the deluge which hit the area.

Drying out operations continue whilst tons of silt have been removed from the drains - with some repairs required to them as well.

Said secretary David Allan: "The ambition and key challenge of course now is to get sufficient areas back into service before our opening home Betfred Cup fixture v Hearts on October 10.

"The dehumidifiers have been working well but will need to keep going until the middle of the week when things though should be about right for work to get underway.

"We hope that we can get all the offices back into action fairly quickly along with the dressing rooms but that depends on what the workmen find."

David has also flagged up a need for help from fans to carry out some painting work and also weeding of areas around the ground.

He added: "Normally pre-season supporters do a lot of very much needed work getting things spruced up for the coming season.

"The Covid situation has meant that this has been put on hold, but things are moving forward now and hopefully we can get this going before the Hearts game".

If people can help out in any way they should contact David on 07885606759.
