They successfully defended their Inverness and District Amateur Premier League title this season winning the division on the final day of the campaign one point ahead of Avoch and Loch Ness.

Tomorrow’s final has been switched from the Caledonian Stadium in Inverness to Culbokie.

Manager James Logie said the change of venue at late notice was disappointing but he says his team will not lose focus in their aim to secure a double.

“We have won the league so we have every right to go into the final confident,” he said.

“We have a strong team going into the cup final but Loch Ness ran us all the way in the league to the final day.

“We can’t underestimate them.”

Despite losing twice to Loch Ness home and away in the league, Logie says Maryburgh winning the division gives them confidence that they can win another trophy.

“When Loch Ness and Avoch drew 4-4, we knew what we had to do in the league and we went out and won all our games.

“Our application and mental strength knowing that we had to win was fantastic.

“But that won’t matter or the fact that they have beaten us twice in the league will matter on Saturday.

“Loch Ness are a good team and they don’t have many weaknesses.

“But either do we however what has happened in the past doesn’t matter.

“It is a cup final, it will all depend on who turns up on the day. I am expecting that to be the case and for a really good game.”

Kick-off at Culbokie is at 5.30pm on Saturday.
