Highland League fixtures wiped out

Mosset ParkFORRES Mechanics have been hit by their tenth postponed fixture since mid-November.

The entire Highland League card on Wednesday has been wiped out by the wintry weather, including Mechanics' home game against Wick Academy.

Of Forres' last 15 fixtures in all competitions, ten have fallen victim to the elements including the Mosset Park club's last five home games.

But manager Charlie Rowley is closer to bringing injured pair Simon Allan and Scott Moore into his squad from injury, with a double header of games against deveronvale coming up.

"It has given us a wee bit of leeway in terms of Simon, a couple of weeks to try and push to being fully fit," he said.

"Scotty Moore would have missed (last) Saturday. He's been playing with a wee groin strain and got quite a severe calf knock in a friendly last week. They should be OK for this week."

As well as the Forres game, Rothes' home match against Turriff United and keith's game against Deveronvale at Kynoch Park were called off.

Completing a full set of call-offs, the midweek Cove Rangers v Clachnacuddin, Fort William v Nairn County, Huntly v Inverurie Locos and Strathspey Thistle v Brora Rangers games were postponed.
