By Andrew Henderson


Clach Women’s manager Bobby Beckwith has hailed his title-winning squad after they finally lifted the Highlands and Islands League trophy.

The Lilywhites had sealed their spot as champions with a couple of games to spare, and were presented with the trophy after their final game of the season last weekend, a one-sided 12-0 win against Brora.

It was a great way to end the season, and Beckwith says the moment clearly meant a lot to his players.

“We finished strongly and played really well – it was good, I thought the girls might have been a bit lackadaisical, but no,” he said.

“I said to the girls at the end, there’s some of the senior ones that might have played their last season, they will be able to look back and say they won this league.

“The younger ones should look at their medal and say this is the first medal they’ve ever won, and they can build on it now, they can take it forward.

“I know it meant a lot, some of the senior ones have been playing these games for three or four years and haven’t won anything."
