Fixtures revealed for 17-club Highland League


By Craig Christie


THE Highland League will operate as a 17-club division next season - and the fixtures have been announced.

Highland League football resumes on July 27.
Highland League football resumes on July 27.

Clubs voted not to bring in another team to replace champions Cove Rangers, who won promotion to SPFL League 2.

Caley Thistle under-20s had expressed an interest in coming into the league next term.

Instead the league will operate with an odd number of clubs, meaning one side will sit out the action in each set of fixtures.

Forres Mechanics will be the first idle team when the season gets underway on July 27.

The Cans' first league game is at Rothes a week later.

Rothes open with a trip to Turriff United while Lossiemouth are at home to Huntly on day one.

Buckie Thistle make the journey to Inverurie and Deveronvale are on home soil against Nairn County.
