He has played 200+ games for Jock Premier teams. Brora are an odd case. It's been 30 years since I saw a "Hielan Lig" game. I'd say the standard these days would generally be Isthmian Premier. However, the introduction of a Pyramid has seen clubs become "ambitious."
Brora is 60 miles north of Inverness. So while Cove & Kelty have bought league places by throwing £500+ per week at players from Dundee, Edinburgh & Glasgow to go "part-time", nobody will hack to Brora. They have to hoover up the best players from other northern Highland League clubs and pounce on players released from Ross & Inverness. They pay good money and the owner adopts an Aspect Rangers approach, providing jobs for players. Meekings might be on more up there than at Stones. They are Highland League champs and rattle in 6s and 7s regularly. They beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup earlier this year - a result so shocking it may have woken Beanie up mid-train-journey - and they get in the League Cup this season, with group games v. Dundee, Ross County and others. Not sure how they'd handle trips to Stranraer or Annan if they get into the league.

He could hardly have moved further away from Wealdstone, I note Switzerland is nearer. Just a cameo in a Stones shirt but good luck to hm.

Bora beat Brechin City in the relegation/promotion matches so are Div 2 this season not the Highland League… only know this as, a saddo, I follow Brechin for my sins…. Therefore, maybe not such a bad move for him as may get seen by better teams and play at a higher level again if that is his wish

Mmm…. Thought I should shut up on this one but in the end decided to put up ….. Kelty (Lowland League) beat Brechin in play offs and will play in Div 2 of the Scottish League next season. Brechin will be playing Brora in the Highland League if they accept the rules of relegation from the SL

So basically he has done a highland fling. Now where did I put my coat.

On paper a decent start to our recruitment campaign. Exactly the type of player that the management will be needing to target. There will hopefully be quite a few more around like him.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.
