Brora's incredible Scottish Cup win over Hearts last week make them many people's rightful choice to take on the Lowland League winners for a shot at promotion up the ranks.

The Sutherland side were also awarded the Highland League crown in 2019-20, when they were clear leaders before the campaign was stopped due to the spread of coronavirus last March.

However, the champs were denied their chance to climb the pyramid, as the SPFL cancelled all play-offs and clubs rejected reconstruction options.

Fans may think that clubs like Fraserburgh or Buckie Thistle could have challenged Brora for this season's title if the league had been allowed to run its course.

Others might have doubts about awarding a championship when no club played more than three matches, and one club - Strathspey Thistle - had not played a single fixture.

Have your say by voting on what you think is the fairest option to finish off another campaign severely hampered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
