North Caledonian League chiefs have announced they will be releasing fixtures in the next few days which will allow the season to be concluded.

The North Caledonian Football Association have contacted all 12 competing clubs about its plans to complete the two divisions before July.

The decision to suspend the league was made one month before the Scottish Football Association suspended all football below the top two divisions in January.

Thurso and Halkirk United are fourth and fifth respectively in the six-team top flight.

Association president Iain Whitehead says it is unlikely that the cup competitions will be completed, although no final decision has been made. But he is confident that the league campaign can be played to a finish.

“With outdoor sport allowed to restart on May 17, we are looking at continuing the season two weeks after that,” Whitehead said.

“The plan is to start up when we can and see if the fixtures can be played. Hopefully it will not take too long to conclude the leagues.

“We have had a meeting with the teams and they have said that they want to try it.”
