Home match v Brechin City FC – Seafield Park, Grantown
Saturday 19 March – KO 3pm
This is quite a historical weekend as we welcome our friends from Brechin through the doors of Seafield Park for their first ever visit to Grantown and a Breedon Highland League match.
We visited Glebe Park last October and started the game extremely well but on the other side of half time, unfortunately for us, the experience of the home team took hold and we lost the match 7-3 – but not many teams recently have managed to score three goals at Brechin.
At the moment Brechin City sit in third place in the league, fourteen places above us, so we will be delighted to capture any points this weekend, but, if not it won’t be for the lack of trying. This starts a sequence of games where we play four out of the top five teams in the league……..
At least the weather forecast looks as though we will be basking in sunshine – so if you can – please come along and enjoy the fitba’!
Unfortunately we were unable to continue our winning way and add to the three points from last Saturday losing 4-2 to Clachnacuddin at Seafield Park on Wednesday night. The photo taken on the night shows both teams solidarity with the Ukraine.
New dates for your diary – maybe some have been amended from last week – please check : these are The Jags fixtures until the end of the season – at the moment this is the current list:
26/03 Rothes (A) – 30/03 Fraserburgh (H) – 2/04 Buckie Thistle (A) – 6/04 Forres Mechanics (H) – 9/04 Lossiemouth (A) – 13/04 Fort William “(H)” – 16/04 Inverurie Loco Works (H)
As we have said before due to the Highland weather and game postponements this time of year is usually very busy with, for example, three games over the past week all at home – The Club would really appreciate if you have two or three hours to spare of a morning to come and give us a helping hand repairing the pitch – all you need is a garden fork, a good pair of boots and an enjoyment of banter and the craic!
