The Canal Park outfit have revealed they have applied to Scottish Rugby to enter a third XV into Caley North Four. But a final decision from the Caledonia rules and competitions committee unlikely to come imminently due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They had tested out the feasibility of a third team last season with friendlies against Caithness 2nds and Turriff.

It received a positive response from the players involved.

Findlater says the push to enter a new league side instead of continuing with friendlies shows that it will be more than a social or development side. He said they will have the same expectations of success as the first team in National One or second team in Caledonia North Two.

“I don’t see the point in playing just for the sake of playing,” Findlater insisted.
