MANAGER Craig Campbell says Brora Rangers have what it takes to reclaim the Highland League championship this season.
The Cattachs begin their campaign against Keith at Kynoch Park on Saturday.
Campbell believes the Highland League will once again be an open championship with a number of teams considering themselves contenders to lift the crown.
He believes Brora can be in the mix for the championship and good enough to come out on top at the end of the season and also be in contention for promotion to League Two.
“We know that it will not be an easy task to win the Highland League,” admitted Campbell.
“But winning the league is the aspiration at the club and the aspiration for the players.
“Our target will be to win as many trophies as we can this season.
“They are maybe seven teams capable of winning the league. It is a competitive league and hopefully that will bring the best out of all the teams who are competing this season.”
Campbell says he is pleased with how things have gone during pre-season.
He says they are in the shape required to start the Highland League campaign on a positive note.
“I am delighted the way the boys have come back to pre-season as they are all in good shape,” he said.
“They have all worked hard and done everything that is asked of them.
“In our first two games against Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Ross County we have done well.
“Although against Inverness Caledonian Thistle Under-18’s last weekend, we fell short of the standards that we have set ourselves.
“But it is pre-season and we created enough chances to win most games if we had managed to score them.
“I can’t be too criticial of the boys as it is still pre-season.
“But I am sure we will be ready for the first game of the season.”
