During his time at the shinty club, Gallacher led the club to two appearances in the Camanachd Cup final.

He earned top four Premiership finishes in the last two years as well as challenging in MacAulay Cup and MacTavish Cup.

Speaking ahead of the team’s league match at Inveraray, Gallacher said: “I have really enjoyed my time in charge and I wish the lads well for the future.

“I would like to have continued but things are stacking up for me away from the sport.

“My partner and I are expecting out first child in January so there simply will not be the time available for shinty”.

For tomorrow’s match Gallacher hopes to have Craig Mainland back from injury but Lorne MacKay, free of suspension, has work commitments.

Elsewhere Caberfeidh travel to Kilmallie, leaders Kingussie welcome Kinlochshiel and Newtonmore face Lochaber.

Oban Camanachd and Kyles Athletic clash in the second semi-final of the Camanachd Cup.

In the National Division, second placed Glenurquhart travel to Fort William looking to maintain their promotion challenge with the hosts only needing a win to clinch the title.

Glenurquhart joint managers Stuart MacKintosh and Eddie Tembo will be without their top player Conor Golabek who sits out the third of a three-match suspension.

Beauly take on Skye at Braeview Park where the visitors will be looking for a win to keep their promotion hopes alive.

Glenurquhart reserves will take on Newtonmore reserves in the semi final of the Strathdearn Cup at The Eilan.

Paul MacKintosh and Steven Henderson are survivors of the 2016 final when Glenurquhart lost 4–1 to Lochcarron.
