Former Clachnacuddin striker Brindle lauds 'brave' move to crown Brora Rangers Highland League champions
Ex-Clach striker Paul Brindle believes the Highland League showed great courage and integrity by rallying together to crown Brora Rangers champions.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, most senior leagues in the UK are still scrambling to provide clarity on what might happen to season 2019/20, given the likelihood of a prolonged shutdown.
But all 16 of Brora’s rival clubs at the HFL meeting last Saturday decisively backed a motion to award the trophy to the Sutherland outfit, who led the way throughout and held a commanding 13-point lead with six games to play.
Even Fraserburgh, who could theoretically have cut the gap to eight points, backed the decision as just and sensible.
Brindle would have loved to win it conventionally, but felt it was a fair outcome given Brora’s overall dominance.
