Fans started a snowball fight during the match between Dundee United and St Mirren.

Footage of Dundee United and St Mirren fans taking part in a snowball fight during Friday night’s Championship clash has gone viral.

The game came close to being called off after blizzard conditions hit the West Coast, with the Paisley 2021 Stadium affected  by snowfall.

Buddies fans and the club worked to ensure the game went ahead, with supporters even looking out their shovels to clear the pavement around the grounds.

St Mirren won the match 2-0, however footage of both sets of fans chucking snowballs at each other has been widely shared across social media.

Ross MacDonald uploaded this clip to Twitter.

Supporters have even been earning praise for the “well contested” snowball fight.
