A shock in the Scottish Cup 2nd Rd..Hearts who are not used to entry so early in this competition,lost 2-1 at Brora Rangers of the Highland League.

Brora is about 60 miles north of Inverness.I have driven past their Dudgeon Park home off the A9 many times...Long old drive back to Edinburgh for the losing team this evening.

Brora very nearly got into the SFL a few seasons ago narrowly losing over two legs in the playoffs.

I too have driven past Brora. It's near Golspie isn't it? Off the main road (A9?) like you say Olds. Visited a few places round there including Dunrobin Castle. Absolute shock though this result, especially given that Brora hadn't even played this year. I think that if fans had been allowed to this game, it would 100& be a case of Hearts players refunding ticket money as the very least they can do. A real embarrassment.

Yes on the A9 near Golspie(stayed in a crap hotel for £85 in Golspie & got bed bugs !)
I love those towns on the A9 in Sutherland.
Yes Brora have not played for 3 months & have only had 5 training sessions plus a friendly as practice,

The Highland League for 20/21 will be scrubbed.
A fresh start in late July 2021 for 21/22.
Fort William finished 4th from bottom in the table,a right result position wise.Only playing 1 game & losing it 10 nil ! Though a couple of teams below them did not complete a fixture & the other played 2 games & had a worse goal difference 😁

Stranraer travel to Brora Rangers in the Scottish Cup 3rd Round on Saturday.With the exception of a trip to Wick Academy that must be the longest trip possible.
617 mile round trip & not all motorway.
I don’t imagine Stranraer will be doing a overnighter for the game.

Formartine, Turriff, and Strathspey seem to have been expunged from the map, have they folded ?

Good spot...Not as far as I know...Formartine played in the Cup a couple of weeks ago.

Strathspey struggle as much as Fort William on the pitch...Though as you will know the have a cracking heritage steam railway to make a visit worthwhile.😎

I wonder if the Wick Academy supporters look out their shorts and T shirts for the drip "down south" to Fort William :)
