Fort William 




Match Postponed 




Fort William v. Fraserburgh off

Today's HFL match between Fort William and Fraserburgh at Claggan Park has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Formartine close in on Hunter

It has been reported that Formartine have been granted permission by Fraserburgh to talk to Broch boss Kris Hunter over the managerial vacancy at North Lodge Park.

The Bellslea club had rejected an approach from United to talk to Hunter earlier this week.

Team news Sat 28th March

Clach v Formartine Utd 

Clach have won their last two against Fort William and Forres going into their home clash with Formartine Utd. Home boss Iain Polworth names the same squad as Wednesday night for this one.

Striker Marek Madle will come back into contention for managerless Formartine, but there are doubts over Gary Clark, who came off at Inverurie in midweek, and Stephen Jeffrey.

Cove Rangers v Nairn County  

Two in-form teams meet at Allan Park and home side Cove will be without Connor Scully, who is suspended. Dean Lawrie is also out injured for the Aberdeen side.

Nairn scored an impressive four-nil win on Wednesday night to all but end Turriff’s title hopes. They will be hoping for another big scalp here.


Brora aiming for Scottish League place

Brora Rangers will play for a place in the Scottish Football League if they retain their Press and Journal Highland League Championship this season. 

A win at Turriff on Saturday will clinch the title for the Dudgeon Park men, who would then face a play-off against Edinburgh City to determine who faces the club finishing bottom of League 2. 

Match reports Wed 25th March

Brora Rangers 2-1 Wick Academy  

Brora took a big step towards the Highland League title by beating local rivals Wick. 

The Cattachs can secure their second successive championship if they defeat closest challengers Turriff on Saturday. 

In a goal-less first half at Dudgeon Park, the nearest either team came to scoring was when Steven Mackay struck a post with a close range shot. 

Brora took the lead in the 65th minute when Mackay headed in a cross from Andrew Greig. 

The home side’s second goal of the game was similar in creation, with Zander Sutherland’s delivery being converted by Mackay. 

Wick reduced the deficit late on through a 15-yard shot by Steven Anderson Harrison, but it was too little, too late.
