There was some shock news coming out of Brora Rangers last weekend as manager Steven Mackay handed in his resignation. We look at the events that led to Mackay's decision, and wonder where the Cattachs go from here as they look to salvage their Highland League title bid already...

It is a free weekend for Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle, but we look back at each team's contrasting fortunes last time out, as well as previewing this weekend's Highland League action.

Away from football, Ross County Cricket Club are looking to lift the North of Scotland Senior Cup for the first time in 21 years tomorrow as they host Forres, while in shinty Lovat are Inverness-shire's only representative left after Beauly's dramatic penalty shoot-out defeat to Kyles Athletic.

Will also got a taste of martial arts as he talked to HMAC coach Aiden Mackenzie about his squad of Jiu-jitsu hopefuls that are travelling to Wolverhampton for the European Championships.
