Clach back in North Caledonian League

CLACH have rejoined the North Caledonian League ahead of the new season - with Fort William dropping out.

The Lilywhites have won the North Caledonian league 14 times - their first success was over 100 years ago - whilst their last triumph was in 1992.

The club was welcomed back into the association by secretary Rod Houston, who said: "Clach are historic members of the association, so the annual general meeting was delighted to welcome them back in. We are sorry to lose Fort William, they were good members, but ultimately the pitch availability in the Lochaber area undermined their good intentions."

He added: "We are still looking for a new sponsor. Port Services Group, who were our main sponsors have switched their focus. We are grateful to them for their support over the years, but if anyone out there wants to help North Caledonian football, we are looking for a league sponsor. Inverness in the south to Thurso in the north is our area."

Golspie Sutherland, Thurso, Dingwall Thistle, Muir of Ord Rovers, Balintore, Alness United, Invergordon, Bonar Bridge and champions Halkirk United are the other teams who take part in the league.

Clach's first-team, meanwhile, will aim to bounce back from Friday's 6-0 home pre-season defeat by Irn Bru Division Three side Elgin City on Saturday against juniors Banchory St Ternan.
