The Caithness AFA first division campaign is heading towards a dramatic conclusion at both ends of the table with the championship and relegation issues set to go down to the wire.

The title will be decided on goal difference if the top two, Wick Groats and Pentland United, win their remaining fixtures and the other end is equally tight with Wick Thistle, Lybster and John O'Groats level on points in the bottom three places.

The team finishing last will be relegated, with the second-bottom club facing a relegation/promotion play-off against the Division Two runners-up.

Remaining fixtures in Division One: Acks v Wick Groats; Pentland United v High Ormlie Hotspur; Wick Thistle v John O'Groats (all August 9); Staxigoe United v Lybster (August 10); Wick Thistle v Pentland United (August 12, TBC); High Ormlie Hotspur v Wick Groats; Lybster v John O'Groats; Pentland United v Wick Thistle; Staxigoe United v Acks (all August 16).
