Formartine v County off

The Gurn hears from Donald Matheson that the Highland League fixture is off with the Formartine pitch frosted and with snow on the surface as well. That's bad news as the Wee County miss yet another Highland League game. Next Saturday no Highland League football too but an intriguing Scottish Cup encounter at Forfar (In 1968 the squad went down on a similar journey in the prelimanary round and came home with a 1-2 away win). I
Here's the Highland League table before today's surviving matches are played. Cove are top, having played 11 games but the league is still wide open, with perhaps almost 10 teams in with a chance when games in hand are taken into account. The Wee County's twitter feed states that last Saturday's North Cup final was the 9th highest attendance at a football ground in Scotland on that day. The profile of the Highland League is rising once again.

Disappointing the game is off but the saving grace is so are many others.
