Clubs voted to crown no winner for the league championship this season with the North Caledonian League Cup also cancelled.

The league was suspended on March 13 with Invergordon four points ahead of second place Thurso with three games remaining.

Golspie Sutherland were in third place, seven points behind but had two games in hand on the league leaders.

League secretary, Sandy Stephen said: “With regards to the incomplete League season and North Caledonian Cup, we recognise that there is no outcome that will satisfy every club. As an association we have worked hard over the past month or so to reach a decision to conclude the season that reflects the will of our member clubs by a clear majority, which we now have.”

“To not end the season on the pitch is naturally disappointing, but every league in Scotland is facing this same problem at the moment.

"For the North Caledonian FA, the fact that there were so many possible winners of the league championship speaks volumes for the competitive strength of our league at present.

"Our league continues to grow, and it will continue to go from strength to strength when the new season comes around.”

"Clubs shall reconvene in the coming weeks for a pre-AGM meeting to prepare for the 2020-21 campaign."
