AWAY MATCH v FORRES MECHANICS FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
MOSSET PARK, FORRES, IV36 1AU
SATURDAY 7 JANUARY 2023 – KO – 3pm
That’s the festive season over for another year and for the first time since the beginning of December we are ready to go. This Saturday our first match of 2023 is away to Forres Mechanics FC at Mosset Park in Forres, the town famous for its’ superb and winning summer flower displays.
The Can-Cans are going pretty well this season and currently sit in seventh place in the league with twenty seven points from twenty games – a tally which shows how tight and unpredictable it has been for the middle league teams this season – everyone seems to have upped their game and unfortunately we have been left behind a wee bit.
But hopefully a new year will bring us a change of fortunes – and will see us take some points after a blooming good and hard game!!
Over the past couple of weeks we have featured heavily on the back pages of our local newspaper The Strathspey and Badenoch Herald, and as we have not had a game since December 3, it has given our new interim management team some time to assess the playing squad.
The management team of Brian Ritchie, Craig Ireland and Robbie Flett have used the enforced break well and have been hard at work preparing the squad starting with this weekend’s match, with sessions on Nairn beach and at Ross County, and also using Aviemore’s Dalfaber indoor facilities.
Much to the delight of everyone at the Club we have secured the services of Ross Logan from Clach on a permanent deal – Ross was with us for a couple of months last season on a loan and we were very sorry to see him go – and Ross will be joined by midfielders Seamus McConaghy and Rory Williamson who have signed until the end of the season on loan from Nairn County. Also joining us is local lad Cairn Giles who has impressed the management team with his work in the Community team….
There was however a setback in preparations when Elgin City FC recalled their very promising youngster Aiden Cruickshank – Aiden who scored three goals in his spell with us is a fine prospect and we wish him all the best for the future.
It’s all back to normal this weekend with the draw as usual on Sunday night – last play online is 6pm – and if you want to play here and have the chance of winning this weeks’ jackpot of £2700 – please play here.
Thanks very much for supporting the Club and all the best for 2023.
