Alness United need a favour from Ullapool this weekend to win the Under-18 Highland League with their fate out of their own hands.

A win for Clachnacuddin would hand them the championship and consign Alness United to second place in the table.

Clachnacuddin moved a step closer to the Highland League U18 North title with a 4–0 victory over Keith on Sunday.

Rory Mackinnon gave the Lilywhites the lead after just two minutes and just 10 minutes they moved into a dominant lead thanks to a Robert Urquhart strike.

Max Morrison and Ethan McGoran added goals to round off the win that moves them on to 54 points, just one point behind league leaders Alness United.

On Friday night, Wick Academy and Rothes played their outstanding fixture at Harmsworth Park with the home side winning 3–1. Allan Mathieson scored twice and Conor Farquhar scored for the Caithness side, with Owen Alexander netting in reply for Rothes.
