Vics become a victim of the weather once again

Have your say

IT IS a frustrating time for all followers of junior football with the weather constantly interrupting the programme.

Yet again it was snow which caused the damage with only a handful of fixtures going ahead throughout Scotland.

Unfortunately for Arbroath Vics their league match at home to Blairgowrie was one of the many that fell victim to the weather.

Despite Arbroath again having escaped most of the snow, there was still a sufficient amount of it in the Cairnie area to leave a covering on Ogilvy Park, rendering the surface unplayable.

Tomorrow’s match

Tomorrow (Saturday), Vics will be hoping for better luck when they again try to get the match against Blairgowrie played at Ogilvy Park.

And with the temperatures at last having risen, it will hopefully go ahead at the third attempt.

Kick-off is at 1.45 p.m.
