Gowfers idle again!

FOR THE fourth time in five weeks Carnoustie Panmure had no competitive game on Saturday as their league fixture against Lochee United, along with all the others, was frozen off.

With all local grassed areas also frozen solid, manager Ian Gilzean took his troops for a session on the beach, using the facilities at the Leisure Centre for changing and showering.

Further fixtures have now been issued and these are as follows: Saturday, December 8, at home to Linlithgow Rose in the McBookie.com East Superleague; Saturday, December 15, away to Lochee Harp in the first round proper of the G.A.
