Home Match v Fraserburgh FC – Seafield Park, Grantown
Wednesday 30 March – KO 8pm
With the Highland League on the front pages instead of the back, please, everyone attending the game, and everyone in the world not attending, please observe…
Breedon Highland League leaders Fraserburgh FC visit Seafield Park for an under the floodlights match, which should have taken place on February 5th.
We welcome players, management and supporters of “The Broch” to Grantown for the first time since December 2019 knowing it will be a long trip, especially on a Wednesday evening – hopefully they’ll enjoy their visit…but not too much. There is a slight concern that there may be a hint of snow – so again we commend the travelling support and hope their journeys both to and from the Grantown are hassle free.
We haven’t beaten Fraserburgh since April 2010 – our first season in the Highland League. Charlie and the team will be expecting another very difficult game, but with our performances over the last few games and Saturday’s result against Rothes, there seems to be a new found confidence which hopefully bodes well for the next few games – although you can’t get any tougher than a match against the league leaders, followed on Saturday with a visit to Buckie Thistle, who lie in second place.
Hopefully the weather behaves and everything goes according to plan……..
Speaking of Rothes and the game at Mackessak Park last Saturday – it just shows you, you can never be absolutely certain of results of football matches.
Rothes lying sixth in the League were favourites for the three points – but The Jags played really, really well and with goals from Dylan Lawrence, Kris Duncan and Jordan Shaw, whose extra-time winner was his first goal for us – the first of many we hope – gave us a 3-2 victory which was a great result for everyone connected with the club.
As it is a midweek fixture if anyone wants to give some of the committee members a help with pitch repairs on Thursday morning ( weather permitting ), we’d be delighted to see you about 9.30 am – a garden fork and a pair of boots and you’re set…
