Clachnacuddin Women left gutted by Lewis and Harris withdrawal
Clachnacuddin Women manager Bobby Beckwith says the club are ‘gutted’ with the decision by leaders Lewis and Harris to pull out of the Highlands and Islands League.
The Western Isles outfit, who thrashed Clachnacuddin 7–0 in the League Cup final at the Caledonian Stadium, announced they were struggling to fulfil fixtures on the mainland due to the size of their squad available.
Lewis and Harris had won every game they played this season and the league had been a two-horse race between them and Clachnacuddin.
Beckwith said his team wanted to go head-to-head with Lewis and Harris for the championship as the two best teams in the league.
He said the club is sad that will not be the case.
“It is a big disappointment and the girls are gutted that they have left,” he said.
“They would have preferred if Lewis and Harris stayed in the league.
“It is good for our girls to be up against players as good as them.
“We had been on their tails for the whole season. This is not the way that we would have wanted to win the league.”
