The Press and Journal has signed an agreement with the Scottish Highland Football League (SHFL) giving them exclusive rights to video and hosting of match day highlights.

Saturday, July 25 marks the start of the 2015/16 Highland League season and The Big Game will showcase some of the best action from the weekend’s SHFL fixtures.

Available on The Press and Journal website (, The Big Game will be posted weekly and is an hour long video including match day highlights, manager and player reaction and independent analysis from one of the Highland League’s best known faces, Dave Edwards.

The Press and Journal Online Editor Martin Little said: “The Highland League has thousands of dedicated fans who follow their club week-in, week-out. We want to bring them the very best coverage of the league they love, from match reports and analysis to reaction and video highlights. The Big Game will have this in abundance.

“We are really excited about starting the production of The Big Game this weekend with Formartine United v Forres Mechanics as the lead match.”

Dennis Bridgeford, SHFL President, said: “The SHFL is delighted that The Press and Journal are taking over the videoing and streaming of the P&J League matches.

“With tens of thousands of Highland League fans across the north of Scotland and beyond, The Big Game will give fans the chance to keep up with their club.”

The Press and Journal Editor-in-Chief Damian Bates said: “This is an exciting move for both The Press and Journal and the Highland League.

“The Press and Journal has a long-standing, excellent relationship with the SHFL as main sponsor of the league. We are already the primary source of news and analysis for the Highland League in print - now we are taking it to a new level with video highlights online.”

The Big Game will be available to watch at from the Sunday night of each weekend of the SHFL season, and will add to The Press and Journal’s extensive Highland League coverage in print and online.
