I've no idea how to include a Twitter post (tweet?) with the surrounding box, etc., on here so I'll just copy and paste its text.

This is from the Fort William FC Twitter:


Club Statement

Following unacceptable behaviour of The Ultras supporters group over a number of games this season we have taken the decision to ban this group from home games. They will be able to gain entry individually if accompanied by a parent.

It won't be hard for Hamish MacBeth to find out who did it. I doubt anyone would actually travel to Fort William to drink their Tenants Extra so just check the local Spar cctv and then knock on a few doors

Last season was abandoned as you will imagine and FW finished next bottom. Their highest league position for 3 seasons.

New season starting soon.

The SHFL League Management Committee met earlier today and decided the following structure for season 2020-2021:
the League Championship will be based on a single fixture between each club so that each club has 8 home and 8 away fixtures.

SHFL Statement re Fort William FC

Statement from SHFL – 25th July 2021

The Highland League’s League Management Committee met this evening and agreed with Fort William FC that they play all their Highland League and League Cup fixtures away from home for season 2021-22.

Early this week the League was contacted by a member of the public to express concern regarding the condition of Claggan Park, Fort William. In view of that description, it was decided that the League should undertake a ground inspection as a matter of urgency.

Claggan Park was inspected on Thursday 22nd July and the results of that inspection was reported to the League’s Office Bearers that evening. The Office Bearers formed the view that the verbal and photographic evidence indicated that Fort William FC was in breach of League Rule 7.6.1 and that a meeting with fort William FC be arranged at the earliest possible moment.

That meeting took place on Friday 23rd July when the club accepted without reservation that it was in breach of Rule 7.6.1 which places a requirement on clubs to a ensure that their pitch is in good condition and provided with an efficient and effective drainage system.

The ensuing discussion between the Club and the Office Bearers included explanation of the circumstances that have led to the situation at Claggan Park and consideration of the options available to Fort William FC. It was explained to the Club that, given the severity of the problem, the matter would be referred to an emergency meeting of the League Management Committee.

That meeting took place on Sunday 25th July 2021 when the above agreement for season 2021-22 was reached with Fort William FC. This means that all Highland League and Cup fixtures will take place at Fort William’s scheduled opponents’ ground.

In coming to its determination, the League Management Committee considered the information provided by the ground inspection and the submission provided by the Club. It also took into account that the Club had not contacted the League to inform it of the state of Claggan Park. Furthermore, historically, there have been a high number of match postponements due to the condition of the park, a matter which has previously been the subject of correspondence between the League and the Club, most recently in March 2020.

The pitch is in the middle of a public park, quite literally like a Sunday league pitch, and is regularly vandalised as they can't fully close it off.
Couple that with massive drainage problems, they crowd funded over £300k of extra under-pitch drainage and laid it themselves, and it's not surprising the pitch is fooked.

This season, they're also struggling to fulfil committee positions and gain sponsorship and now having to play every game at least two hours away from their home may be the last straw of the club in it's current form. It's a pity as they've done some decent recruitment and although they lost 3-0 to Rothes, on Saturday, they ran the game for large parts of it but just couldn't score.

Just been on their message board and there's a lot of support across other Highland League fans groups that the league decision isn't right. Clachnacuddin F.C had a fire at the ground and were allowed to switch their home games to the local rugby club's all weather pitch. There's questions being asked as to why they can't ground share with the local shinty club or switch their home games to a suitable pitch in Inverness, where most of the players have based themselves.
