The Drumnadrochit outfit confirmed two members of their club are among 27 cases in the local area.

The club released a statement they will pause for two weeks and not play their next two scheduled matches.

This includes Saturday's MacTavish Cup clash at Lovat and the league clash with Fort William at Blairbeg Park on Saturday, July 10.

Chairman Garry Mackintosh says the club have made a responsible decision.

He said: "It has now been advised that the number of positive COVID cases within the local area over the past few days has now reached 27, with two club members currently included within that figure.

"Due to the rising cases of Covid in the community we have taken the decision to suspend all participation in training and games over the next two weekends, up to and including weekend of July 10.

"Whilst hugely disappointing for everyone, it is not only in the best interest of the club but it’s our responsibility to the community as a whole."

The announcement comes as Strathpeffer outfit Caberfeidh have also suspended all shinty activity for two weeks.

Glenurquhart defeated Strathglass 2–0 in the Camanachd Cup first round last weekend.
