The Harlaw Park outfit are not the first to report Covid-related issues in the Highland League this season. Nairn County’s first two games were postponed due to a player contracting the virus and nine others having to self-isolate as close contacts.
Deveronvale’s game with Buckie Thistle last weekend was also postponed as Vale had a number of players isolating.
It comes on a day when the both of the scheduled Highland League games – as well as several Scottish Cup ties – were called off due to the freezing temperatures in the north.
Clach’s trip to Lossiemouth was the last fixture to go after an 11am pitch inspection, while Deveronvale v Strathspey was also postponed.
Cup matches involving Formartine, Buckie Thistle, Keith, Huntly, Nairn and Brora were all called off.
