Highland RFC are confident they can produce one more shock this season by defeating Aberdeen Grammar to lift the National League Cup.

After securing promotion to National One last weekend after running in 13 tries against Howe of Fife, the Greens face a different prospect in the final at Stirling.

Aberdeen Grammar finished the season in fourth place in National One.

But after defeating Cartha Queens and Musselburgh from the same division on route to the final, Carson says his team go into the match optimistic they can end the season with silverware.

"Aberdeen Grammar have been in National One and the Premiership for many years. They are a big side.

"It will be a big challenge for us, but we’ve beaten Cartha and Musselburgh and we’ve got promotion, we’re on a high. This is a bonus to be playing at Stirling.

"There is no pressure on us – it is all on Grammar. Our guys will give it the best shot and if we can keep running the ball about we will give them a good go.

"The pressure is off us as we’ve got promotion we can enjoy ourselves.

"We will just express ourselves and they are good at that when we get a roll on."
