The new Arran football season kicked off on Monday night with the preliminary match of the Arran Haulage Cup.

Shiskine travelled to Lochranza to take on Northend which has become a tasty fixture in recent years. Northend raced into a three-goal lead with Andy McNamara scoring first from the penalty spot. Dominic Demazeux scored the second before David Jameson added a third.

Shiskine started a comeback in the second half with Donald Mulholland scoring a penalty, before last year’s young player of the year, Cammy Thomson made it 3-2 and the fight was back on. However, despite a few penalty claims late on from Shiskine the Northenders held on to set up a semi-final away to Brodick on Monday May 7. David Jameson was awarded the man of the match award for Northend.

Lamlash will host Southend in the other semi final of the cup on the same night.
