AWAY MATCH v WICK ACADEMY FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
HARMSWORTH PARK, WICK, KW1 5NH
SATURDAY 21 JANUARY 2023 – KO 3pm
It wasn’t madness that some clever person invented the NC500.
On Saturday, The Jags will be on the team bus travelling the A9 – the part of the NC500 between Inverness and Wick This is one of the longer journeys we make – approx 135 miles and upwards of 3 hours – on a good day – and then do it all again for the way home – but Wick are doing this every other week…so no more moaning!
,Having put in a strong performance last week against Breedon Highland League leaders Buckie Thistle, the Scorries will be ready to face a rejuvenated Jags.
We also put in a decent performance last Saturday against Lossiemouth – losing 3-1 with Lossie scoring two in the last minutes – most spectators thought a draw would have been a far fairer result.
Wick Academy sit in twelfth position in the league – fourteen points ahead of us – so lets hope at five o’clock on Saturday its only eleven.
As I write this there is about twenty cms of snow on Seafield Park and with all the bad weather going about if you are planning travelling to the game please check our social media pages – Facebook and Twitter for up to date information – and a safe journey!
LAST WEEK MOTM
Congratulations are due to the Cairngorm Gin MAN OF THE MATCH Award from last week’s encounter with Lossiemouth – Alan Kerr.
Alan, who joined last summer, has played all his matches as centre forward but the interim management team must have seen something in training last week as he took the field as centre HALF ! Watching him you would have thought he had played there all his life ……and I would imagine he will be at the back again this week….honourable mention was our stand-in keeper from Alness, Nat Valente who’s first job was to save a penalty in the first five minutes…and continued to have a really good game. As Mike McCallum is unavailable again this week, I would imagine Nat will be back between the sticks.
As is usual in this part of the weekly JagsWeb production, we entice you to have a go in the weekly Club Lottery game – this week’s jackpot is £2900 and to play click here.
