SNOW and ice-covered pitches led to the postponement of all of the matches involving Clydesdale’s four junior football teams and the adult rugby teams of Biggar and Lanark last weekend.

In a rare example of local sporting sides playing competitive fixtures, the respective under-15 sides of Biggar Rugby Club boys and girls were both victorious on the west coast.

Biggar boys won 50-0 at Kilmarnock, while Biggar girls triumphed 51-12 at Ayr in the Brewin Dolphin Cup quarter-finals. See this week’s Carluke and Lanark Gazette, which is in the shops from this Wednesday, February 4, for the full story.
