Yet again Broughty Athletic manager Keith Gibson vents his frustration at another call-off due to the recent weather conditions that saw his side’s game at home to visitors Musselburgh Athletic in the Super League be called off Saturday morning.

With rain, sleet and snow forecast for Friday night and Saturday morning, it was touch and go if the game was to go ahead. But a covering of snow early Saturday morning on Whitton Park put paid to Broughty’s chances of rectifying last Saturday’s home defeat to Sauchie.

The Broughty gaffer had this to say on the call-off…

“It’s so frustrating having the game called off at such late notice. We spoke with the lads at length following last Saturday’s defeat to Sauchie and the boys showed great character in training, looking to put things right against Musselburgh.

There was no frost in the ground at Whitton Park, I thought we were going to get a game until the snow fell overnight, early morning. We could of done with a game before going into this Saturday’s GA Cup game away to Stonehaven which is going to be a hard game. The lads put in another great training session Saturday morning and we’ll continue that this week at training, looking to next week’s game…”

Broughty travel to Glenury Park, home of North Region Super League side Stonehaven next Saturday in the GA Engineering Cup, with a 2-15pm kick-off. Should the game end in a draw, penalties will decide who goes into the hat for the next round draw.
