Snow-hit Dudgeon Park in Brora is currently under a blanket of snow after persistent snowfall hit villages and towns across the north this week.

The Cattachs are now inviting volunteers to combine their efforts, with snow shovels and wheelbarrows at the ready, on Thursday.

Work on the park is expected to begin from 9am and will continue throughout the day in an attempt to clear the park of snow.

A spokesperson for the club said: "Currently we have several inches of snow on the park. We plan to remove the snow on Thursday in preparation for our Scottish Cup tie against Cove Rangers. We plan to spread the job throughout the day, and would like 30 people ideally. Even if people can’t help, borrowing snow shovels and barrows will be helpful."

The Scottish Cup fourth round tie between Brora Rangers and Cove Rangers is scheduled to be played on Saturday, January 20 with a 3pm kick off.
