Bute Shinty Club’s first team match at home to Kilmallie this Saturday, March 1, has been postponed due to an unplayable pitch.

The announcement will come as no surprise to anyone who has visited the pitch at the Meadows in recent weeks and seen the surface struggle to cope with frequent heavy rain.

The same fate has befallen Kilmallie’s home ground at Canal Parks in Caol, dashing hopes that the venue for the game could be reversed.

Bute’s first fixture in the new National Division is now scheduled to be against Oban Camanachd at Mossfield Park on March 8.
