Clachnacuddin will honour long-serving midfielder Martin Callum tomorrow night when the Lilywhites captain’s testimonial match is played.

Clach will take on Elgin City at Grant Street Park, with all proceeds from the match being donated by Callum to mental health charity Mikeysline.

The match will kick off at 7.45pm, with a suggested entry donation of £10 for spectators.

Callum came off the bench in the Lilywhites penultimate Highland League match of the season at the weekend, which ended up being a 1-0 loss to Inverurie Locos.

Jay Halliday found the net in the first half, and neither side could find another breakthrough to change the scoreboard before the final whistle was blown.

Nairn County, meanwhile, missed the chance to leapfrog Huntly in the Highland League table.

Squaring off against each other at Christie Park, a goalless draw drew both sides’ campaigns to a close and ensured that Huntly would finish the higher of the two in the standings.

The remaining Highland League title contenders all registered one-sided victories.

It is now mathematically a three-horse race, with leaders Brechin City seeing off Forres Mechanics 6-1.

Buckie Thistle still look best placed to challenge, defeating Deveronvale by the same scoreline on Saturday before taking on Strathspey Thistle after the Inverness Courier went to print last night.

Fraserburgh are also still in contention, and they beat Strathspey Thistle 5-1 on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Banks O’Dee saw off Brora Rangers 2-1 at Dudgeon Park, while Formartine United were another side to record a 6-1 win, in their case over Rothes.

Wick Academy defeated Keith 2-1, and Turriff United and Lossiemouth could not be separated in a 0-0 draw.
