ONLY two league fixtures were able to take place on Saturday, as the freezing temperatures saw postponements across the junior football and rugby fixture cards.

Dunbar United were victorious in the only East Premier League game that did get the go-ahead, Steven Tait's 40th-minute goal helping them to victory at St Andrews United.

Haddington Athletic, who had been due to face Kirriemuir Thistle at Millfield, saw that match postponed and had to make do with a friendly against Newtongrange Star on the 3G pitch at Whittingehame Drive.

The visitors, managed by ex-Musselburgh boss Stevie McLeish, had former Tranent Juniors boss Darren Smith among their ranks after he signed a short-term deal last week, and were 2-1 winners over the Hi Hi.

Smith's former side had their meeting with Blackburn United called off early on Saturday morning, with new manager Max Christie calling in the players for a training session at Foresters Park. 

And Musselburgh Athletic's long-awaited Scottish Junior Cup tie at Hurlford was postponed for a third successive week - the sides will try again on Saturday. 

And on the rugby fixture card, Musselburgh's trip to Selkirk was postponed, while Haddington's match at Murrayfield Wanderers was a late call-off. 

North Berwick were in action, but they went down 20-23 to Hawick Harlequins as the top two met in East 1, while neither Ross High or Dunbar saw action.

All of the county clubs will hope to return to the pitch this weekend, starting with Ross High RFC hosting Edinburgh University Medics on Friday evening.
