On Saturday we’ll be watching the River Deveron flow by, as the Jags roll into town for our encounter with Deveronvale FC. It’s our second league game of the season against The Vale and as ever we look forward to meeting everyone at Princess Royal Park..

It’s now over sixteen years since Deveronvale won the Highland League and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then – for example The Jags were still a Junior Club then.

Most games between the clubs have usually been a pretty close affair – the game at Seafield Park in August finished in a draw 2-2, and it looks as though it could be very close game this Saturday. ‘Vale manager Craig Stewart stated in the press that it was a must win for Deveronvale – which is exactly the same that was said by Jags boss Charlie Brown. 
The three wins and three draws this season put Deveronvale one place above us – but seven points ahead so we must get something out of the match

Incidentally “Watching The River Flow” was written by Nethy Bridge songster Bob Dylan….!!

The Jags were unlucky in our league game last Saturday afternoon against fifth placed Formartine United.  After reaching half time level, a contentious penalty was awarded to Formartine after seventy minutes which they scored from. Our keeper Olly Kelly made some important saves following this but could do nothing when Formartine doubled their lead ten minutes later. Another penalty was awarded to the visitors but this time Kelly pulled off a great save. Probably, on their second half display Formartine deserved their win.
