Broughty Athletic’s short trip to face local side Downfield JFC in the 3rd round of the Junior Scottish Cup has been called off due to a frozen Downfield Park pitch.

With temperatures dropping midweek it was thought today’s game might scrape through and go ahead but with temps hitting -6 across the city last night sadly it’s not made it.

Both teams will now see their respective league fixtures next Saturday cancelled also, Broughty were at home to Newtongrange Star in the Super League and Downfield’s trip to Armadale Thistle in the Premier League, as they reschedule the 3rd round fixture for Downfield Park with a proposed 1-45pm kick off.
