That scrapping of this weekend’s fixture is down to one of the Philiphaugh club’s players returning a positive coronavirus test result today, September 24.

Selkirk A’s Tennent’s Reserve East League Division 1 game against Currie Chieftains A, also due to be played at Philiphaugh tomorrow, has been called off too.

Tomorrow’s game is Selkirk’s first XV’s second of this season to be abandoned due to Covid-19 issues following their planned opening-day fixture away to Jed-Forest at the start of this month being postponed.

The Souters are currently seventh in the 10-team table, with six points from two games and Currie are top with 11 from three.
