A change in league fixtures means Stenhousemuir players can enjoy Christmas a little more - and avoid the shopping.

East Fife were scheduled to host the Warriors at New Bayview on Boxing Day, but that match has been re-scheduled - and switched to the busiest shopping day of the year.

The SFL board last night ratified a request from the Fife club and Martyn Corrigan’s side to move the game from the Wednesday to the Saturday prior.

It means fans of Andy Rodgers, John Gemmell and company will avoid one of the busiest shopping days of the year on the Saturday before Christmas.

The Irn-Bru Second Division match will now be played on Saturday, December 22, 2012 at 3 p.m.
