Beware, Steve - there is talk of Eriskay possibly not being allowed to host it due to changing rooms not being up to HAC-requirement standard. Which would be a nonsense since Eriskay v Barra was happily played in the league tonight, finishing 1-6.

Southend v Point is a potential back up, but when I tweeted Eriskay a fortnight ago I got the following response

"Hi Steve, yes it looks like that game will go ahead on the 18th of May in Eriskay. Kick off time will be confirmed nearer the time"

I'm thinking of visiting Eriskay in June or July of this year. I'll be very interested to know the route and timings if you do go. Seems a proper slog to get there, but no doubt well worth it!

Are the non Sat 18th kick offs known yet ?

Have also been pondering the journey to Eriskay v Barra.
I believe that match will be kicking off at 1pm.

Wondering if there might be a game elsewhere on Western Isles (Highland Cup OR a league game maybe) on the Friday evening, 17th? Or possibly later on the Sat 18th if on the Uists.
Think I can also see a game in Portree at 6pm Sat 18th for which the 2nd half would be doable on way back....

Re: [London Harrier] Highland Amateur Cup 2019 [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I was on Eriskay last summer (with car) - Oban - Barra -Eriskay was my route.

On Barra we stayed a couple of nights at Heathbank Hotel which was excellent. We had a week based in South Uist before returning to the mainland via Lochboisdale and Skye.

You need to be prepared for the weather, of course. The Barra-Eriskay crossing we had booked was cancelled because of high winds and it was pretty choppy when we did cross.

Ties between Lewis sides might be moved to the Friday, Stornoway Utd v Ness is a good bet as groundsharers Stornoway Athletic are also drawn at home (v Benbecula).

On South Uist the Southend v Point game should be on the Saturday, but given ferry times it’s also likely to be a lunchtime ko. Even if it kicks off later it’d be difficult to double with Eriskay if that game is at 1pm.

If you’re still at the planning stage, note that accommodation on the Uists that weekend was in short supply when I booked a few weeks ago.

No chance of a double unless you count half matches, Southend v Point is 11.30 ‘if travel arrangements go to plan’.

Hold your horses.
Am hearing on the grapevine (from a reliable source) that the Eriskay match is moved to Liniclate.
Will confirm on here as soon as it's formally declared somewhere...

From The Times, no less, and not even on the sports pages:

"Pitch not perfect for cup rivals

A bitterly contested cup tie between Hebridean football rivals is being played on a "neutral" island because of a dispute over a world-famous pitch.

Eriskay FC's ground sits high above the Atlantic and has been endorded by Fifa but the club says that the team from the neighbouring island of Barra is "not happy with our facilities."

As a results, the Highland Amateur Cup tie has been moved to a venue on neighbouring Benbecula. The announcement on Eriskay FC's Facebook page provoked a row, with the club's fans accusing Barra, who are joint top of the local island league of having the "egos of Premier League stars."

When not in use for football the Eriskay pitch , a rectangle of turf cut out of crofting land is grazed by ponies and sheep. The Times witnessed last month's encounter between the two sides, when the changing facilities used by Barra players amounted to a windswept outcrop that had recently been vacated by a flock of golden plover. The pitch has been a bone of contention for years but was recently included in the Fifa Museum in Zurich alongside seven other remarkable places where football is played ....

Barra's and supporters were quick to defend the decision to switch the venue claiming that the pitch failed to meet the standard length and width set down in Highland Amateur Cup rules.

Bob Gunn, the competition secretary, said inclusion in the Fifa museum was not the same as meeting Fifa pitch guidelines which set minimum dimensions of 45m by 90m. Barra were within their rights to insist on a pitch which met the rules, he said."

Barra v Wick Groats (the holders) should be good, but no idea where it will be played. Perhaps Ullapool?

Hope they make Barra travel to a truly awkward location and that they ship double figures. No sympathy for them whatsoever after the last-minuteness of their objection to Eriskay messed everybody about.
