Macleod and MacCallum North Caledonian League 

 

Bunillidh Thistle v Alness United
Couper Park, Helmsdale
12:30pm 

Bunillidh Thistle welcome unbeaten Alness United to Couper Park on Saturday, looking to build on last weekend’s impressive first win of the season. The hosts chalked up their first league points of the campaign as they got the better of St Duthus in a ten-goal thriller in Helmsdale. Manager Dean Cowie will be hoping his side can build on that result, as The Jags look to secure back to back win for the first time since rejoining the North Caledonian League. Alness United will be looking to make it four wins from four in the League this season, having already seen off Halkirk United, St Duthus and Thurso, to keep hot on the heels of Golspie and Invergordon above them.

St Duthus v Thurso
The Links, Tain
2:30pm

The Links in Tain is the venue for St Duthus v Thurso this weekend, as the hosts look to chalk up their first league points of the season. Stuart Ross’s men have had a torrid start to the 2018/19 season, having tasted defeat in all their fixtures so far, but will look to the visit of the Caithness outfit as a possible kick starter to their season. Thurso will hope to get the recent back to back away defeats at the hands of Alness United quickly out of their system, as they themselves look to secure the clubs first win of the season.
