EVERY Highland League football match has been postponed due to high winds across the north.
The Highland League made the decision to call all fixtures off with a weather forecast predicting winds of at least 50 miles per hour throughout the afternoon.
A spokesperson said: "Following a meeting of Office Bearers, the entire Breedon Highland League programme for today has been postponed.
"Prevailing weather conditions are sufficiently poor to make travel hazardous and current travel advice reflects that.
"In addition, forecast weather conditions for the afternoon make the possibility of late postponements more likely."
The nine matches called off are:
Brechin City v Nairn County
Buckie Thistle v Brora Rangers
Deveronvale v Clachnacuddin
Fraserburgh v Wick Academy
Huntly v Formartine United
Inverurie Locos v Fort William
Keith v Lossiemouth
Rothes v Strathspey Thistle
Turriff United v Forres Mechanics
