Clach boss Sandy McLeod desperate to give club a lift as Grant Street Park repairs continue

Clach boss Sandy McLeod is desperate to give the club a lift as work continues to get them back home.

A Christmas Eve fire at Grant Street Park has deprived them of their home ground, with their last two home games played at Highland RFC’s Canal Park.

The Lilywhites have struggled for form on the park, losing those two games against Fort William and Forres Mechanics, with their only point this year coming away to Deveronvale at the start of January.

There had been hope the derby against Nairn County on February 15 could see them return to Grant Street, however there is no current date set in stone for when work will be completed.

McLeod said: “It’s not been a good time for the club. We need to try get a couple of wins to give everyone a boost. It’s been an up and down season and it hasn’t been good enough, at the end of the day.

“We train at Millburn Academy anyway, so it hasn’t affected that side of things. We have dealt with the football side of things as best we can and left the board to get the other stuff sorted. It hasn’t been going well but I hope we can turn a corner eventually.”

Club chairman Alex Chisholm hailed the level of support given to the Highland League club earlier this week. A fundraising page set up by supporters is targeting £5,000 to be towards renovations of Grant Street Park, with meetings taking place this week with insurers.

Their two games at Canal Park have been well-attended, with the Fort William game drawing a crowd of 700.

Clach travel to Lossiemouth tomorrow without Martin Callum and Daniel Bruce, while striker John Cameron is a doubt with an Achilles problem.
