Crowded out...Craig Buchureweski gets halted by the Watsonians defence

DESPITE the weather putting pay to several football and rugby matches over the weekend, there is still plenty for you to enjoy in this week’s Gazette Sport.

We previewing the upcoming point-to-point horse racing at Overton Farm in the Clyde Valley with track owner Willie Young hoping for better weather than we’ve been having recently.

We also have the remarkable story of an adventurer from Leadhills who has become the first Briton to ski solo to the South Pole from the Messner Start on the Filchner Ice Shelf at the edge of the Antarctic continent.

Plus there’s action from Biggar Rugby’s 36-10 defeat by Watsonians on Saturday and a round-up of all the latest junior football going’s on.
