The snow and freezing temperatures that hit Midlothian last week all but wiped out the sports fixtures in the county on Saturday.

Newtongrange Star’s New Victoria Park was unplayable, as was Easthouses Lily’s Newbattle Complex pitch.

However, thanks to a tremendous effort by staff and volunteers, Bonnyrigg Rose’s New Dundas Park was given the go-ahead. But in the rugby, Lasswade and Penicuik both saw their home games called off due to the weather.
