Thurso manager Michael Bremner says he and his players back the decision to carry on with the North Caledonian League season.

With Covid-19 numbers rising to record levels, the possibility of pausing the campaign was raised at a North Caledonian FA meeting on Wednesday night. However, it was decided that the league should continue.

“I was quite happy to keep going and all the players were as well," Bremner said. “We just found out about the meeting on Tuesday.

“We're lucky enough that most of our games are at home now. We'll be as careful as we can be.

“The players are all wanting something to look forward to – the way that everything is, they are wanting their game of football on a Saturday. They were quite happy to keep going and I was the same."

The Vikings will be using cars rather than a team bus for their trip to Bonar Bridge this weekend and that is likely to be the means of transport for all their away games from now on.

The Sutherland side are ninth in the table, a point ahead of Thurso, but have played five more games than the Vikings.

Halkirk United have a home match against Invergordon on Saturday.

A win for Ewan McElroy’s team would put them back in the top three as they are two points behind the Easter Ross side.
