HOME GAME v BRECHIN CITY FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE – SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN
SATURDAY 3 SEPTEMBER – KO 3PM
This week we welcome for the second time Brechin City FC to Grantown. After the hooplah of the Harleys, we hope that getting to Seafield Park will be a lot easier this week especially for the fans who travel by car as there should be enough parking around the town!
As current leaders Brechin will be keen to continue their 100% league record but The Jags, again, looked more promising against Wick Academy last week so as we always say….you never know in football…

Last week we were very, very unlucky to not come away with at least a draw from an entertaining encounter at Seafield Park against Wick Academy FC in a Breedon Highland League match. Speaking to one of the Wick committee after the game he agreed that we were deserving of the draw.
It was a beautiful warm and sunny day – in fact there were water breaks..and that doesn’t happen a lot in the Highland League!!
Both teams had chances in the first half with the Wick keeper Graeme Williamson making two phenomenal saves early on. It remained 0-0 at half time, but in the 50th minute Liam Taylor headed home a delightful Darren Brew cross to give the Jags a 1 -0 deserved lead.
After the hour mark Wick gained more control of the game and equalised in the 79th minute but The Jags again had at least two golden chances to take the lead but both shots failed to find the target. Heart break occurred in the 90+1st minute when Wick took the lead and by doing so won all three points…a very disappointing outcome for Jags fans.
We also welcomed to Seafield Park the Essex branch of the Strathspey Thistle Supporters Club, John McManus and Jack Hannah – we hope they enjoyed their weekend.
And congratulations go to our left back local Grantown lad Liam Grant for his MOTM Award.
