HOME MATCH v NAIRN COUNTY FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN PH26 3RH
SATURDAY 4 FEBRUARY 2023 – KO 2pm
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A 2PM KICK OFF
This Saturday we welcome from across the Dava Moor, Nairn County FC and their supporters.
Nairn are going very well at the moment and are climbing the league after a slowish start, and we are preparing for what will be another tough encounter and no doubt Jags fans will recognise two or three familiar faces in the County ranks.
Nairn currently sit in ninth position in the league and hopefully we can do a wee bit better than our last encounter in October when we lost 4-2.
Usually Nairn take a good support with them and for them more information is available click here.
The Club are delighted to announce that we secured the services of our new Assistant Manager Robert MacCormack, whose work at Alness United has been very impressive, and we warmly welcome him to The Jags. He will make his debut in the dugout alongside our interim management team on Saturday.
As well as our earlier January signings of Ross Logan, Cairn Giles and two loan signings, from our visitors Nairn County, Seamus McConaughy and Rory Williamson, we will be welcoming some more new faces with the recently signed goalkeeper James Kendall, ex Nairn County, and forward Rory Mackinnon and both could also be involved on Saturday.
Two more signings brothers Robert and Cameron Breen are unfortunately unable for selection this week but will be available from next week.
STRATHSPEY THISTLE NEEDS YOUR HELP – URGENT HELP REQUIRED
With the recent departure of Vice-Chairman Ian S Anderson due to an ever increasing work schedule, and, having to devote the required time he felt his position in the club required, he thought it was necessary to step down from the committee as well as long serving committee member and kit man Ian B Anderson. The Club would like to thank them very much for all the extremely hard work they have put in over the years and wish them all the best.
However, that now means we have a very much reduced committee and would be delighted to hear from anyone who loves their football and would want to join us, or just to give us a hand on home match days – please come along on a match day you will be very welcome to see the set up, or you can contact at any other time Chairman Donly McLeod (01479 872668) or Secretary Clive Wolstenholme ( 01479 811334) for more information.
….and on the subject of help – as most of us are finding this economic climate a bit challenging the club are no different – energy bills, players wages, referees fees, travelling costs, pitch maintenance etc etc, so, if any local business or person can offer sponsorship or any help financially the Club would be very appreciative indeed.
Although this sounds a bit gloomy, we are as a Club feeling very positive on how our future looks – especially with a very positive and ambitious new management team in the making and all but ready to go, and our recent association with interim manager and our Head of Football Development Brian Ritchie’s local community team which have already supplied some of the current Jags team, there is a lot to look forward to.

See you next week.
