The website of Scottish League Cup winners Ross County has been accidentally deleted causing problems for the club selling tickets.

The Dingwall-based Scottish Premiership outfit uses web hosting firm 123-reg.

The company, which hosts 1.7m sites in the UK, has said an error made during maintenance “effectively deleted” what was on some of its servers.

David O’Connor, of Ross County, said the issue came amid the club’s build up to Sunday’s game against Celtic.

He said: “Online is a crucial part of our ticket sales, selling merchandise and the website is where fans go to to reserve seats on buses and find match information.”

Mr O’Connor said the website went down on Saturday and efforts were being made to restore services.

He said supporters could contact the club by phone – 01349 860860 – or visit the stadium to buy tickets.

But he added: “Coming to the ground is not easy for the fan who works nine to five. Our fan base is always widely spread out across the Highlands and it mean supporters having to travel quite a distance to get to Dingwall.”

Earlier this week, 123-reg started a “recovery process”, but advised customers with their own data backup to rebuild their own websites.
