Inverness Caledonian Thistle have made a key signing as the club attempts to break into the Scottish Premier League’s top six.
But this new addition to the team will not be showing off his skills on the pitch. Instead the Rev Hugh Watt will be providing spiritual support to the squad as club chaplain — a role given added significance by the death last weekend of Motherwell club captain Phil O’Donnell, who died of heart failure after collapsing during a match with Dundee United.
“At Motherwell it would be crucial to help the boys after Phil’s death and to be there for his family, but it is not just for things like that,” said the Rev Watt, minister at Urquhart and Glenmoriston parish church in Drumnadrochit.
