Fort William SHOCK the Highland League

Two weeks ago a team in the Highland League recorded four wins in a row for the first time which put them in a place in many Highland League supporter’s hearts.Who may it be? Is it Strathspey or Lossiemouth ? No it was Fort William who are the most unlikely side to have done this and for once they had become well-known to Scotland due to their success not down to their failures.

Kenny Mackenzie scored the winner against Clachnacuddin to make remarkable history for the West Highlands side. The beautiful town’s location next to Ben Nevis is nationally known for its Shinty rather than football in its sporting dna that’s why this was magical. Some of their opposition could be lured into undermining the threat of the Lochaber squad which could prove to be costly for many teams who are looking to challenge for the title.

Calum MacLean the manager has done a cracking job fielding a determination and impressive team every week. Nobody should dare to rule them out of continuing their joyful run of form as long. Fort William holds a place in my heart because I’ve watched them and they’re a team who has impressed me a lot.

There a team who I would love to see play more often but sadly the weather has stopped me from attending games involving them as they were mainly cancelled. I don’t support any Highland League team but I will certainly be keeping a good eye on their results every Saturday afternoon.
