JUNIOR football was wiped out by the wintry weather on Saturday.

All 16 of the Scottish Cup fourth round ties, including Port Glasgow’s clash with Auchinleck Talbot, were postponed, as even the 3G pitches like Parklea were affected by the ice and snow.

As it became obvious the game could not go ahead, it was called off before 10am.

The match has been re-scheduled for this coming Saturday.

Meanwhile, league games were decimated as well, with every one of the 20 matches called off.

That meant no action for Greenock, who were due to play Rutherglen Glencairn at Ravenscraig.

However, the club was able to secure the use of a local gym at short notice for a training session to keep the squad ticking over.

Manager Martin Campbell said: “We are grateful to James Canning who took a great session at JC’s Gym which worked the boys hard, but was thoroughly enjoyed by them.

“Getting the squad together is important not only for fitness, but also for keeping morale high.

“JC’s Gym has always been responsive in these situations, and also during the season on occasions when we need to break the routine to freshen things up.” League bosses have kept the same fixture list for this weekend, with Greenock hoping it will be second time lucky for the visit of Glencairn.
