Scottish Side Dunfermline Apologizes To Fans For 'Unprofessional' Turnstile Delays
Scottish Championship side Dunfermline Athletic offered fans an apology after admitting the turnstile fiasco during its derby with Falkirk was "amateurish and unprofessional," according to Alan Temple of the Scotland DAILY RECORD. Hundreds of Dunfermline supporters "suffered delays at East End Park" on Saturday as the club's updated electronic entry system "continues to endure teething problems." Many fans "missed the opening two goals" against Falkirk. In a "brutally honest" statement, the club acknowledged the situation has been "embarrassing" and "lambasted the third-party responsible for the installation of the technology for broken promises." Dunfermline does not host another fixture until Sept. 16, and it hopes to solve the entry issue by that date -- "albeit more than a month after the system was slated to be tested and fully operational" (DAILY RECORD, 8/22).
