The Locos Drummers from last seasons visit to Seafield Park

This week we welcome Inverurie Locos to Seafield Park. If its the same as previous encounters they will be bringing a large and vociferous support which is great – the atmosphere is always tweaked up a notch especially if the Loco band are there.
Currently sitting in seventh position in the Breedon Highland League, it makes it another difficult game for us especially as we have never taken a point off them in in our history – one of only two teams in the league.
So lets hope that our fortunes change this week and Charlie and the boys get something from the game – three points would be nice!

The Scottish Cup 1st round tie against Camelon Juniors was preceeded by a minutes silence to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth.
The game was a wee bit disappointing as we started extremely well and could have been two up within the first fifteen minutes but a soft penalty in the thirtieth minute gave Camelon a half-time lead 1-0 which was unlucky as we were very much in the game. 
The second half was a different game altogether – and we struggled to every ball – and the East of Scotland league team took command and scored four goals – the last one on the ninetieth minute was a crafty shot from the half way line which looped over our keeper.
So again we go out of the national cup competition in round one – ach, there’s always next year!

The postponement of the previous week’s game meant we were unable to bring you news of some local footballing success.

During half time at the Brechin game Keith Ross, who runs the Speyside Boys Summer League, presented Strathspey U12’s captain Thomas Crowson with the winners Shield and the squad with medals – it was the first time in ten years they have competed in the league and most of the boys have never played organised games before. Games were played twice a week throughout the summer and the boys won on the last day beating their nearest rivals in a thrilling game 2-1 – all in all they played fourteen games winning twelve and losing two. Lets hope in ten years time Thomas is lifting the Highland League Trophy!!!
…and you may probably recognise some of the guys as they help us with ball-boy duties at our games – which is very much appreciated.
