THE fixtures for the upcoming 2022-23 Highland League season have been announced.

Slightly delayed due to an appeal from Fort William – who, it is now known, won't be playing in the league next season – the fixtures were confirmed on Thursday night.

Forres Mechanics will get their campaign underway on July 23 at Strathspey Thistle, managed by former Cans favourite Charlie Brown.

The first home game comes the week after on Saturday, July 30, with Brechin City the visitors.

The Scottish Cup first round will take place on Saturday, September 17. The Highland League Cup final will take place on April 8, 2023.

The traditional Christmas and New Year derbies are pencilled in for December 27 and January 3. However, this year Forres Mechanics will take on Lossiemouth, as Nairn County face a double header with Clachnacuddin.
