Seems like a good place for swimming races. Bit nippy, perhaps.

 
 
It's right at the bottom of Ben Nevis, so when it rains there's a lot of water to drain down that way.

Would it not have made more sense to put the pitch the other side of the lake?
 
 
It would make more sense to snag a 3G pitch and/or put a roof over it. But that'd need more money that Highland League teams are likely to see over a season.

It's waaay behind shinty in terms of appeal, that 'should' get any cash going.


And deathray, don't think "lake" has been overlooked ;) , ya cunt :lol:

Just dig a one foot wide, one foot deep trench a few yards wide of the side lines round the pitch so that the turf can better drain the high surface water table. Oh, and get some more worms.

Yes, that's true. I also see that Fort William receives an average annual rainfall of 1883 mm. That's more than double the amount Rotterdam gets (856 mm).

Full time ended up with a 3-2 defeat. We scored in the 90th minute to level it at 2-2 then Clach ran up the park from the ko and scored the winner.

 

Gutted!

 

Carlisle surged into the 93rd minute against Shrewsbury a few weeks back with a 1-0 lead, and lost 1-2.
