Harris FC crossed the Minch to pay their respects to a former great to compete in a memorial match for the late Alister ‘Nula’ Morrison - who passed 10-years ago.
A side donned the red and black stripes of Harris FC on Saturday, October 24, for the clash against Mid Lairg United - who are managed by Angus Alec, Alister’s brother.
And running out for Harris on the day was another of the family with brother ‘Nana’ Morrison.
Unfortunately the weather conditions were against Harris – sunny and mild, with a distinct lack of wind and rain – so Harris were rather over-run by very decent opposition, but Na Hearaich did manage to get on the score sheet near the end when the next generation of the Morrison clan was brought on to show some of the older heads how it should be done!
The Nula family are very much part of the fabric of our club and have been great supporters over the years – playing, managing, fundraising – and it is these long-lasting links that make our club what it is.
All involved with Harris Football Club also collectively send our best wishes to Angus ‘Nula’ Morrison who is continuing his recovery in Glasgow. The Borrisdale Bear as he is sometimes affectionately known, is fighting hard and we look forward to seeing him up and about soon, and attending this fixture in the future.
It was a great occasion, enjoyed by all who took part. Well done especially to Nina and Alister’s daughters Fiona, Laura and Charlene for all their efforts to make this day happen, and for organising the race night that evening which raised over £1700 for charity.
Harris FC look forward to continuing this fixture in the years ahead, and remembering people from both clubs from the past and present.
