A LACK of common sense from the Highland League has left Keith trailing in the fixtures list, their manager has claimed.
Maroons’ boss Darren Still says team’s Scottish Cup commitments could affect their league challenge, with the possibility they will fall further behind their rivals when the next round of games are played.
And he has blasted league officials for not allowed Keith to fill this week’s blank weekend by bringing forward their trip to Fort William, which is scheduled to be played in the middle of winter.
Both Keith and Fort were knocked out of the Scottish Cup in the preliminary round earlier this month, and with the first round kicking off without them on Saturday, they were keen to play catch up in the league instead.
“We were due to play at Fort on January 5, so thought we’d try and use common sense by bringing the game forward to this Saturday,” Darren revealed.
“Both Fort William and ourselves wanted to play this weekend, but we’re disappointed common sense has not prevailed. For some unknown reason, the league turned our request down, which I find incredible.”
