Thistle’s game at home to Glasgow Perthshire was one of several fixtures that fell victim to torrential downpours in the early afternoon.
The game was on as late as 1pm but because of the amount of rain that fell in the following 40 minutes after 1pm, the game was called off just 20 minutes from the kick off.
