Eriskay FC to take Cove Rangers’ place in Highland League

With Aberdeen based club Cove Rangers looking set to rise into SPFL League Two next year after establishing a hefty 4-nil lead over Berwick Rangers in the SPFL play-off, thoughts are turning as to who will replace the Toonsers in the Highland League.

The Daily Gael can exclusively reveal that it in the event of Cove going up it will be Eriskay FC to whom the blazers at the Highland Football League will turn to ensure that the Highland League maintains 18 clubs.

With a high media profile and an iconic park, it makes ideal sense for na h-Eirisgich to make the step up to the fifth tier of Scottish Football. The only obstacles in the way are a three day journey to Fraserburgh and running a karaoke night in Am Politician to raise money for some change strips for games against Buckie Thistle.

This move will however present the blazers (in what sense – Ed?) at the Uist and Barra FA with a headache, with rumours that Westford will be revived to bring the league back up to 6.

This news will also be of disappointment for football experts in Stornoway who would have enjoyed a completely speculative piece of Science Fiction entitled “Leòdhas agus na Hearadh airson Lìog na Gàidhealtachd?” on BBC Naidheachdan.
