THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD

BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE –  AWAY MATCH
v FORMARTINE UNITED FC – SATURDAY 30 JULY 2022  – Kick Off 3pm

 North Lodge Park, Pitmedden,  AB41 7PA

Well…. the long and winding road for the 2022-2023 season starts here and off we go on our first away visit of the season to Aberdeenshire to Pitmedden, and the formidable Formartine United FC – it’ll not be an easy game by any means but we hope that there will be little more cohesion than last Saturday, when we lost to Forres – personally, I think it showed that the lack games in pre-season was a major factor. As we illustrated last week, roughly 3/4 of the signed players this time last year have moved on.
We can look forward to seeing our friends in Pitmedden and hope that former Jags striker Scott Lisle has a quiet game.

Thanks to the The Ball-Gatherers …

The first game of our league campaign against Forres was very disappointing especially as we had attracted a large crowd – thanks everyone for coming along and we hope to see you again very soon.
We also had for the first time at a Highland League match, courtesy of Strathspey Rovers FC – ball gatherers – and they were kept busy retrieving footballs from the adjoining properties – thanks go to John Paterson and team for organising. 

Six of the new faces in Jags shirts last Saturday : l to r top – Assistant Manager Mark Holmes, goalie Olly Kelly and James “Fellaini” Fraser : bottom row Darren Brew, local lad Thomas McInnes and striker Allan Kerr.

Congratulations go to debutant Darren Brew who was named “Cairngorm Gin Man of the Match” after Saturdays’ game against Forres Mechanics. Voting was by another of our sponsors MKM, who had booked a hospitality package and we hope that they thoroughly enjoyed their day and hope to see them back again soon……despite the score.
