Sleat and Strath AFC hosted Golspie Stafford in Kyleakin at the weekend in the 3rd round of the Highland Amateur Cup, and despite scoring 5 were still knocked out. The Sleat and Strath back 4 had a nightmare, missing too many tackles, and John Davie looked less than comfortable in goal. Credit to Golspie for taking their chances, but Sleat and Strath gave them the chances. Jamie Robertson had a good game for Sleat and Strath, picking up a fine hat trick.
