Frost hits Junior card

CARNOUSTIE Panmure’s match against Lochee United in the ACA Sports East Super League on Saturday again fell foul of the wintry weather.

When the committee arrived at Laing Park at 8.15 a.m. the air temperature was slightly above freezing, it wasn’t nearly warm enough to make any difference to the playing surface and the match was off.

Again, as on the previous Saturday, only a handful of games went ahead in the whole of the East Region.

No official games are programmed for either December 24 or 31, so the next game will be on January 7, but as yet no details details for this fixture have been issued.

Keen Gowfers’ fans may not, however, be entirely starved of action as manager Ian Gilzean has arranged a couple of attractive friendlies for the festive period.

The first of these is against near neighbours, Broughty Athletic and is scheduled for Tuesday, December 27, at Laing Park, with a 1 p.m. kick-off.

The second is against Tayport on Tuesday, January 3, but details of where and when have not yet been finalised. Both these games will, of course, depend on the weather.

Results: Bo’ness United 3, Bonnyrigg Rose 2.

Broughty Athletic

BROUGHTY Athletic also suffered from the weather as Saturday’s game against Tayport was again a victim of the conditions.

Whereas the first postponement was frustrating for all concerned, being a borderline decision, it was very obvious this time that the pitch was simply unplayable.

Instead, a training session was quickly arranged. More training sessions and two friendlies over the holiday period, the first against Montrose Roselea on December 24 and the second against Carnoustie Panmure on the 27, will ensure the Broughty squad are raring to go when competitive football, hopefully, recommences in January.
