David Lees, Convener of the Highland Schools’ Football Association Small Schools’ League said: “We are looking forward to an excellent league on Friday and wish all the teams the best of luck.

Matthew MacIver, Glen Urquhart High School Active Schools Co-ordinator said: “We are delighted to host the competition here at Glen Urquhart High School. It is not only important to create pathways for football players but also to increase levels of participation at lunchtime, after school clubs and among all age groups within rural High schools.”
