January, 1935 - January 1935

Seaside Swifts are deducted 7 points for playing senior players by the Ross-Shire Junior League. J. Skinner has turned on more than two occasions for Ross County, G. MacDonald has played for Inverness Thistle on more than three occasions. Swift officials pled ignorance of the rules which they were only furnished with after the complaint was made. The League decided that the Swifts should lose the three points gained when these players had played and also two points for each game, making a total of seven points deducted. The League understands the Swifts will not play their remaining League games. At the same meeting the Swifts also lost out on the refund of 7/6p. The Swifts decided to withdrawn from the Novar Cup, but then reconsidered and sent their 7/6p entrance fee. By the time this was received, Alness, who they were drawn against, had already played Invergordon in the next round therefore not giving the Swifts a chance to compete. The League decided the Swifts were at fault for withdrawing at the outset and kept the money.
