BONAR Bridge could surpass their record points total in the North Caledonian League with victory against Loch Ness at Migdale tomorrow, despite it only being halfway through the season.

The transformation of Bonar Bridge becoming a competitive outfit compared to previous seasons has shown with the results they have achieved.

Last week, they won 3-2 at Nairn County A to move up to ninth place out of 11 teams in the division on eight points.

Last season, Bonar Bridge picked up nine points, with three wins for the entire season, two wins over the now defunct Scourie and a 1-0 victory over Loch Ness at Migdale.

Manager Robert Mitchell says the objective was to beat last season’s points tally, and with it in reach at the halfway point in the season, says it is credit to his team.

“At this stage of the season, we have dropped points we shouldn’t have, but we are happy and are looking to build on our season in the next couple of weeks,” says Mitchell.

“Our aim at the start of the season was to get more than the nine points we registered last season. We knew it would be a harder task with the two leagues merging. But we are now looking to be greedy and get as many points as we can.”
