Clachnacuddin were up against it before Saturday’s Breedon Aggregates Highland League Cup quarter-final against Formartine at North Lodge Park.
With 19-year-old former Inverness Caley Thistle goalkeeper Aidan MacDonald being taken ill on the team bus arriving at the ground and having to be taken to hospital (later released and allowed to return home), manager Ian Polworth was without an available custodian, with John Campbell unavailable.
Step up to the plate 19-year-old midfielder James Beeston, who was given the No 1 shirt for the day.
See below for an interview with James, as well as Clach boss Polworth and Formartine manager Kris Hunter.
United won 2-1, thanks to a penalty from Neil Gauld and goal from Scott Barbour.
