Queen of the South could go part-time

Queen of the South Football Club chairman David Rae has admitted the club may be forced to go part-time with match postponements hitting the club’s finances.

The Irn Bru Scottish League First Division side has only played one home tie since November - a Scottish Cup tie meaning the gate receipts were shared with visitors Brechin City.

The loss of gate receipts and hospitality has put strain on the club’s cash flow, having lost five home games due to the weather.

Talking to BBC Scotland, Rae said:  "We have had six months of the season but out of that we have only played six home league games."

"It means we have got one-third of the season to go but two-thirds of our league games left to play.

He continued: "It is putting the club under severe pressure because you have got no football money coming in.  It cost us an awful lot of money and with hospitality, we are losing big money on that as well."

Despite the threat of going part-time, Rae was adamant the club would avoid entering administration.
