Ross Sutherland's Caledonia North Two survival bid delayed after North Police called in for training
Ross Sutherland’s bid to avoid relegation from Caledonia North Two has been put on hold after their scheduled game against North Police on Saturday was postponed.
North Police have been given dispensation to call off the game due to work commitments involving police training this weekend.
The call-off has come as a blow to the Stags who were looking to reduce the 10-point gap with themselves and second-bottom Mackie who they face next weekend in a bottom-of-the-table clash in Stonehaven.
Head coach John Mann was disappointed with the call-off as it has now been three weeks since they have played a match.
However, he accepted the decision that players from North Police had no choice but to honour their work commitments as an emergency service.
“We got the confirmation on Tuesday that the game was called off,” he said.
“North Police have been given dispensation for police training.
“It is disappointing, but it is the way it is and we have to accept it.”
