"The support that Highland Industrial Supplies have offered us over the past few years has been integral to navigating the past 18 months and my thanks go to Garry and everyone at HIS.”

The draw is as follows: Lovat vs Aberdeen University; Lochside Rovers vs Kinlochshiel or Skye; Newtonmore vs GMA or Kyles Athletic; Beauly vs Kilmory or Inveraray
