Caley Thistle's coaching team has humbled four of their Championship playing squad in a special 'crossbar challenge' for the charity Mikeysline.

With sporting director John Robertson presiding over the contest, the two teams tried their luck at striking the ball off the bar from set distance.

Immediately, it was clear that youth was no substitute for experience as manager Billy Dodds and coaches Scott Kellacher, Barry Wilson and Ross Hughes picked off players Robbie Deas, Reece McAlear, Lewis Jamieson and Scott Allardice with ease in a 14-7 victory.

A spokeswoman for the mental health charity said: "Spending time outdoors is known to be positive for both our physical and mental health and wellbeing.

"If you are up for a bit of exercise today and feel like doing something slightly different, perhaps a new challenge on your own or with friends, take a look at this short film of coaches and players from Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC having a bit of fun with a cross bar challenge.

"Mikeysline is here for you every evening of the festive period, please do not hesitate to reach out if you need to talk or are struggling with difficult feelings or emotions. Both our text-based services and call back service are available this evening."

Mikeysline's motto is "It's ok not to be ok."
