The Cannich outfit revealed their new look yesterday after also confirming Douglas Timber Harvesting and West Fraser as their new sponsors at their game against Newtonmore yesterday.

Speaking about the deal, senior team manager Allan MacLeod said: “We are delighted to have the support of Douglas Timber Harvesting and West Fraser for our first team strips.

"Bruce Douglas has a long association with Strathglass as a player, manager and supporter and we are very grateful that he has now come on board as a sponsor. "Further to this gaining sponsorship from international wood production company West Fraser is a great boost for our club and we look forward to working with both sponsors in the years to come.”

The strips also have the mental health charity Mikeysline logo on the sleeve. MacLeod went on to say “As a club we are pleased to be able to help raise the awareness of the charity Mikeysline and we recognise the importance of the work which they do.

"If publicising Mikeysline results in one person making use of their valuable service then we have helped in some way.”
