Postponement & inspection news - Sat 24th Jan

The first casualty of the weekend was the fixture between Formartine and Fraserburgh at North Lodge Park, postponed due to a frozen pitch.

This was followed by the Moray derby between Rothes and Keith at Mackessack Park and Huntly v. Deveronvale at Christie Park.

Nairn's cup clash at home to Fort William has also been postponed this morning due to a frozen Station Park pitch, as has the league clash between Lossiemouth and Buckie Th. at Grant Park.

These postponements were followed by Clach v Forres and Inverurie v. Turriff, again both due to frozen playing surfaces.

Sheran and Charlesworth have their say on only game to beat big freeze

Cove beat Lossiemouth 2-0 last weekend in the only Highland League game to be played due to the winter weather causing the rest to be postponed.

The visitors survived the dismissal of keeper Murray Kinnaird and centre-half Eric Watson going in goal, to win the game, thanks to strikes by Jamie McAllister and Jamie Watt.

Read on to find out what both managers thought of the match, that was played in difficult conditions due to the low temperatures.

Charlie Charlesworth (Lossiemouth manager)


"Our quality was poor. We didn’t play last week, the conditions didn’t help but Cove dealt with them well, they’re a quality outfit. They made it very difficult for us, we didn’t test their back line enough after they went to 10 men.

"The deliveries we were putting in were not troubling them as we couldn’t get in behind their back players. We’ve not seriously tested the centre-half Eric Watson who went in goals and that is the biggest disappointment.
