After a long lay-off, punctuated only by a walkover when Inverness did not travel, last week’s 2-0 reversal at home to Beauly had been the only action the club had seen since games in May v Boleskine and Lochcarron.
Therefore the club was delighted to come away from an away trip to Strathglass with a 4-1 win.
Early goals made all the difference against a young opposition side supplemented by some veterans at Cannich.
Donald grabbed his eighth of the season after only four minutes to give the club the perfect start, before Connor Chalmers quickly made it two with his first goal since 2016.
Although Strathglass pulled one back, and made it a tighter game, Donald reestablished the lead with his ninth of the season, a record haul for him with the season just over half way complete. He’ll now be confident of being the first player in many years to get into double figures for the season.
In the second half, Tyson scored his first goal for the club since 2013 to finish off the scoring. It was a welcome win down at a ground which has been a happy hunting ground over the years for the Dubh is Gorm. Thanks to Strathglass for the game, and we welcome them to Shawbost on the 6th of July. The points from the win and the walkover to Inverness means we sit just two points behind the Cannich side.
