Pars to test plastic pitch
Dunfermline could become the first Scottish Premier League side to play their games on an artificial surface after they were chosen to take part in a Uefa trial.

The Pars will be one of four test sites in Europe, with the others in Russia, Switzerland and Scandinavia.

Uefa has awarded Dunfermline a grant of 130,000 to install the new synthetic surface, which will be in place for season 2004-05.

Chairman John Yorkston said he felt the move would be a step forward for the club.

Dunfermline's pitch was one of a number of SPL surfaces that cut up badly during last season.
