AWAY MATCH v BANKS O’ DEE FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
SPAIN PARK, ABERDEEN AB12 3AB
SATURDAY 15 APRIL 2023 – KO 3pm
On Saturday we pay our first visit to Spain Park, Aberdeen on Highland League business to meet Banks O’ Dee FC.
In their first season in the Breedon Highland League it’s been a bit of a roller coaster – with the very unfortunate administrative mistake in playing unregistered players and being deducted twenty four points – however since then they are now in twelfth place with thirty three points – and if you add the deducted points they would be in a very creditable sixth place.
It wasn’t a very happy Seafield Park for the home supporters after our last meeting which produced football fireworks from the away team, but hopefully encouraged by recent results we hope that this game will be a far more competitive affair – we wish Robert and the boys all the best on their travels…
MATCH v KEITH FC
As the floodlights faded on another season a reasonably sized midweek crowd were treated to an entertaining hard fought game with Keith emerging as the winners 1-0. A well constructed seventieth minute goal following a midfield mistake by The Jags was the difference between the teams – both sides missed reasonable chances but the general feeling was that Keith marginally deserved the win. However on a very positive note, The Jags again massively improved their performance from our last meeting with Keith. Maybe after the performances of the last couple of weeks we were a wee bit disappointed…..fans are never happy!!
MAN OF THE MATCH
James McShane was voted Man of the Match by the Jags Committee after the match and was presented with his bottle of gin by committee member Alan McKenzie.
Again we would like to thank Jack Smith and his company Cairngorm Gin for his sponsorship of our Man Of The Match award at all our home games this season.
LOWLAND LEAGUE VISITOR
We also welcomed Thomas Brown, his wife and son Jacob to Seafield Park last night. Thomas is the Chairperson of the Scottish Lowland Football League and he and his family are enjoying another of their frequent trips to Aviemore. This time they managed to fit in a visit to The Jags. He tweeted that the family enjoyed the welcome, hospitality and the game…we look forward to welcoming the Brown family back next year.
