Football: weather and holidays hit Bute YFC fixtures

Bute Youth Football Coaching’s under-16 team will be idle for two Saturdays in a row due to the postponement of their scheduled fixtures in the Paisley, Johnstone and District YFL.

BYFC’s home match against Johnstone Burgh last weekend fell victim to a waterlogged pitch, while this Saturday’s away fixture against league leaders Quarriers United has already been called off, this time because Bute have six players unavailable due to the October holiday fortnight.

Bute currently lie in fifth place in the nine-team PJDYFL under 16 C division, with seven points from four matches so far.
