Clachnacuddin manager Brian Macleod is disappointed the Highland League will remain at 17 teams and would have supported Inverness Caledonian Thistleentering a colts team next season.
League chiefs opted not to look for a replacement for champions Cove Rangers following their promotion to League Two when the division held its AGM on Monday night.
It means during the 2019/20 season, each team will have a free week due to the odd number of teams in the division.
Macleod says he is not a fan of the odd number of teams in the league and would have preferred for a new team to bring the division back up to 18.
“I am not the biggest fan of having a free week,” he said.
“It doesn’t look great having it either, during the winter you already find yourself idle during weekends.
“I don’t think there is any benefit, but I understand why the league went with it.
“They might want to take stock and perhaps invite applications for next season.”
The full fixture list for the Highland League 2019/20 season is available here.
