Rothes' home match with Fort William was first to fall victim to the weather as a waterlogged MacKessack Park failed a pitch inspection on Friday morning.

The pitch had been heavy after last weekend's goalless draw between Rothes and Formartine United.

Down in Grantown, the match between Strathspey Thistle and Huntly has also been called off on the eve of the game.

Seafield Park has been affected by snow, and the match has now been rescheduled for next Saturday, December 4.
