HOME MATCH v CLACHNACUDDIN FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN PH26 3HY
SATURDAY 1 APRIL 2023 – KO 3pm
This Saturday, we welcome Inverness Clachnacuddin FC and BBC Scotland’s View From The Terrace to Seafield Park.
The fixture has evolved into a sort of derby match – there has been a lot of rivalry over the years and as the both sets of players know each other really well, they always want to win the bragging rights!
We go into this game hoping to repeat the outcome of our last meeting when we earned our first win of the season back in November, but a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, so as we always say in football you never know what’s going to happen.
Clach come to Grantown after a great result midweek beating Banks o’Dee and we play our second home match in a row after Wednesday’s disappointing result against Huntly.

Unfortunately this Saturday coincides with the opening of the golf season at Grantown Golf Club and parking which was generously offered to the Jags by the Golf Club will not now be available again until the end of the golf season. With the recent wet weather the Community field adjacent to the Park is available to blue badge holders only.
The public car park at Burnfield is always available as is some street parking around the ground but please be aware of not obstructing peoples driveways – thank you.
VIEW FROM THE TERRACE
View From The Terrace, the very watchable BBC Scotland football fan programme are recording a segment for their show on Saturday too. So you never know if you come to the match you may be on the telly!
MATCH v HUNTLY LAST WEDNESDAY
Another game of two halves for the Jags!
Most spectators at the match would confirm that we were the better team in the first half and we took the lead on twenty two minutes by home debutant Jake Lockett only for Huntly to equalise eleven minutes later thanks to a penalty awarded after what looked like a free kick should have been awarded to ourselves – but that’s fitba! We also missed a couple of decent chances during the first period.
Unfortunately in the second half Huntly capitalised on a couple of defensive mistakes and were awarded another penalty in the second half.
The home fans were disappointed with the final result as most reckoned the game was closer than the score suggests.
