Well said.

And ideally change that awkward location the night before the tie to another even more awkward location....

As it happened, I fortunately had not paid out for accommodation and the ferries to go to Eriskay but I very nearly had done so...
If Barra have always been happy to play league games on Eriskay's pitch, they should have treated this the same.
And given both the amateur status of all the clubs in the Highland Cup along with the geographical nature of the Highlands and Islands, the organising committee really ought to be able to make exceptions for their member clubs, especially if only Eriskay are affected by the pitch size rule.

And how far short in size is there pitch anyway?

Google Earth imagery of Eriskay isn't too sharp but it looks to be about 82m x 47m.

Good idea measuring on Google maps!
I've had a go as well.
With the bottom right scaling at 10m level, I made it 13.5cm goal to goal, with 10m for every 1.8cm, giving a pitch length of 75m (81yds), so we both get that the pitch is too short.
Then with street view on and looking from the road above the ground, with the goals centred, I measured 23cm corner flag to corner flag with the goal width of 3.6cm. So with 8yds for the goal, I get a pitch width of 51yds (47m). So just wide enough.
Short of them blasting some major rock crags out of the way, there doesn't look any scope to lengthen the pitch (or widen it).


Have Eriskay previously played Highland Cup ties on their own pitch (without the opposition objecting) ? And if so, should that not have set a precedent?

Just go to Tools --> Ruler --> Line.

Much easier.

I think I was a bit generous with the length measurement - I reckon 78m x 48m

Pentland United v High Ormlie Hotspur 2pm

Sleat & Strath have had to go to Kyleakin because there's an RAF event already booked in the village hall that doubles as the pavilion. They previously played (at least) one HACUP tie there during the period when they were awaiting moving into Broadford - I did a WDYG for it.

Sleat and Strath v Balloan now off, as the visitors can’t raise a side.

Bellmac, who beat Staxigoe Utd away in the last round have been kicked out for fielding a ringer from Aberdeen-based juniors Sunnybank in goals. Seems a bit of a pointless endeavour given he apparently didn't play particularly well and even scored an own-goal... Someone recognised him in highlights posted on YouTube and grassed up Bellmac. Staxigoe will now play Thorfinn at home.

Ness have withdrawn from the cup after fielding a cup-tied player in the win over Helmsdale Utd in the second round. Avoch have received a bye to the quarter finals.

Anyone else pondering a Maryburgh at 12.30pm then a Loch Ness at 3pm (at Ardersier) double?
Do the games go to extra time and pens if needed?

Presumably to avoid having 2 games @ normal home Bignold, Wick. Shame - a Groats + Staxigoe double on Upper & Lower Bignold would have done me nicely!
No reason why the other 3 won't be standard 3pms at their normal home venues, but tbc.
