The assistant manager of Brora Rangers has branded the decision to host this year's Highland League Cup Final on a Sunday as a "disgrace".

The Sutherland side reached the final yesterday, after coming from behind to beat Keith 6–1 at Kynoch Park in a rescheduled semi-final between the sides.

Officials from the Highland League have now confirmed that this year's Highland League Cup Final between Brora Rangers and Fraserburgh will be played at Harlaw Park, Inverurie, on Sunday December 3, with a 3pm kick off.

The final was originally scheduled to be played yesterday, but due to the postponement of the semi-final on September 30, the competition has been delayed.

Cattachs' assistant boss, Josh Meekings, has hit back at the decision, stating his belief that the choice of date was taken with "zero thought" for those involved in the match.

A tweet from the player/coach on X, formerly known as Twitter, read: "Delighted to be in the final but think this is a disgrace.

"Two sets of fans and players (more so ourselves with the 3 hour journey) to play a final on a Sunday with the majority having work the next day I’d imagine.

"Zero thought for those involved by the decision makers in my opinion!"

The Northern Times has contacted the Highland League for comment.
