A Highland League team have been forced to abandon their training session after a pair of stags decided to invade their pitch.

The incredible footage took place as players from Fort William were forced to watch on from the sidelines as the two beasts strutted around at Claggan Park.

Posting a video on their official Twitter account, Fort William FC, who ended their unenviable record of losing 73 games without a win this summer, wrote: "We’ve had to stop training because of some stags."
