HOME MATCH v BANKS O’DEE FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN PH26 3HY
SATURDAY 5 NOVEMBER 2022 – KO 3PM
OK… it’s a cliché but there could be fireworks on Saturday afternoon when the Breedon Highland League debutants Banks O’Dee FC visit Grantown for the first time. They make the journey from Aberdeen on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Rothes on Wednesday night, so, hopefully, this could mean they don’t travel particularly well on the A95/A96.
It’ll be a pleasure welcoming the team, officials and fans of Banks O’Dee to Seafield Park and our Club historian Rob Clark, aided and abetted by Club secretary Clive Wolstenholme have put together a souvenir programme to commemorate their first visit.
The programme will be available to purchase for £1 at the ground or £2 online by Paypal
After having a very decent start to their first season, Banks O’Dee were hit by a severe blow after playing an unregistered player in their recent Scottish Cup match against Turriff United, and as well as being removed from the Cup, they were also deducted 24 points by the Highland League which placed them below us on -1 points.
So its a bottom of the table clash – the ubiquitous six-pointer.

FIRST VICTORY OF THE SEASON
Aiden Cruickshank and Liam Grant both scored first half goals in our match against Clachnacuddin FC at Grant Street, Inverness on Wednesday night in a right dreich night for football – real Highland League weather – but it was sunshine all the way home to Grantown with all three points. There were goalmouth scrambles at both ends of the pitch, and in the second half our ‘keeper Olly Kelly pulled off a magnificent double save which kept the clean sheet intact. According to our match reporter all the boys played really well throughout – and deserved the win. Defensive mistakes have been very, very costly for us so far this season, but that’s now 135 minutes of football of not conceding a goal – so hopefully we can keep that statistic going for as long as we can.
Every Jags player played their part and and as you can imagine Charlie and the boys emerged from the dressing rooms with a big smile on their faces after our first victory of the season.
Unfortunately, Aiden, who has now scored five goals for the Jags, was sent off after being booked twice, so he will miss the Banks O’Dee game.
