Heavy rain gave both of Bute’s shinty teams a free week on Saturday, with the wet and wintry weather forcing the postponement of the club’s two matches against their Glenorchy counterparts.

Bute’s first team had been due to travel to Dalmally for a first round tie in the Celtic Society Cup, while the two clubs’ second teams were scheduled to meet in Rothesay in a South Division Two fixture.

The two first teams’ cup tie has been rescheduled for this Saturday, April 4, when Bute’s second team have a league match at home to Ballachulish at the Meadows.
