3rd The countdown to the new season started at Charlestown Sports in Inverness when we welcomed 14 players to the first session. Missing were Alan Kerr, Liam Grant and Jack Gilliland still recovering from injuries but hopefully fit for the first pre-season game at home to the Strathspey and Badenoch Welfare select team on June17. Fixtures for the season were also released. Please see link below to the Press and Journal comprehensive list.
Michael MacCallum, our goalkeeper of many seasons has decided to seek a new challenge and everyone at The Strathy Jags wishes him well and thanks him for his commitment throughout his time at Seafield Park.
17th The first pre-season game scheduled for June 17 at Seafield Park has been postponed due to the pitch not being ready. Repair work on both goal areas needed more time to knit. The club is hoping to re-arrange the fixture later in the run up to the season start and look forward to welcoming everyone connected with the Strathspey and Badenoch Welfare league.
July 1st A 1pm kick off on a windy and rainy day saw us welcome Nairn St. Ninian from the SJFA North Premier Division for our first game of the pre-season. Returning players from last season were Owen Patterson, Joe Cuthbert, Liam Grant, Ross Logan, Jack Davison, James McShane, Jack Gilliland and Robbie Flett. New arrivals who we welcome were Caelan Mutch, Iain Ross, Jack Mackay, Bradi Hulme, Jude Fraser, Scott Stewart and Ross Peters. The weather made it difficult for both teams but in a close game ‘The Strathy Jags’ won 2-1 with goals from Jude Fraser and Ross Peters. Local lads Scott Stewart, Ross Peters, James McShane and Liam Grant were part of a winning team which hasn’t happened for a while.
Next game is a visit to Forres Thistle on Thursday July 6th at 19:45.
