Clachnacuddin convert rugby stadium as temporary home in Inverness
Clachnacuddin have secured a deal to play at Highland Rugby Club’s Canal Park as repairs continue at Grant Street Park.
A fire caused significant damage to the kit room and dressing rooms at Clach’s stadium in Merkinch on Christmas Eve forcing the postponement of matches.
Repairs will not be completed in time for Friday night’s match against Fort William so the match has been switched to the rugby stadium and its artificial pitch.
Friday’s match, which kicks off at 7.45pm, will be the first time a senior football game has taken place at Canal Park since it opened two years ago.
Clachnacuddin chairman Alex Chisholm says it will be a unique occasion for the club and is confident fans will come down and give their support on Friday night.
He said: “We are delighted to make use of the facilities at Highland Rugby Club. It is one of the best all weather surfaces I’ve seen.”
