Fixtures pileup for Oban Lorne

BT WEST DIVISION 1

ANNAN P-P OBAN LORNE

Oban Lorne’s fixture pileup continues with another postponed fixture, this time in the form of Saturdays trip away to Annan. Pitch conditions due to melting snow and a heavy downpour of rain meant that the game could not go ahead at Annans Violetbank pitch.

Oban now find themselves ten points adrift of safety in the league but possess three games in hand on some of the teams above them.

This Saturday the team entertain mid table Kilmarnock at Glencruitten. The sides met earlier in the season with Killie recording a thumping 106-13 win over an understrength Oban team. Kick off is 3pm at Glencruitten. The Clubhouse will also be open for all of Saturdays Nat West Six Nations fixtures.
