Tayport, St Andrews United and Newburgh joined the majority of clubs across this part of the country in enjoying a free weekend last Saturday.

Heavy downpours left pitches sodden with only those lucky enough to escape the worst of the weather, or with access to artificial surfaces, able to get their games played.

Tayport had been scheduled to visit Dundee Violet’s Glenesk Park as they aimed to maintain their stunning start to the new season.

But the part was deemed unplayable on Saturday morning.

Chris Macpherson’s side will this weekend hope to take to the park again when they host Forfar West End.

Newburgh suffered a similar fate with their scheduled match against Preston Athletic also being postponed.

This weekend they welcome Heriot Watt University to East Shore Park.

St Andrews had been due to welcome Craigroyston to north east Fife.

Instead they’ll now turn their attention to Saturday’s fixture which is a home East of Scotland League 1st Division Conference A tie against Dalkeith Thistle.

All these fixture remain behind closed doors due to government rulings.
