NO GAME THIS SATURDAY
We miss out on Saturday’s 12 August fixtures – our home game v Huntly FC has been postponed as Huntly are involved in the Preliminary Round of the Highland League Cup so we await confirmation of when that game will be scheduled to be played.
THURSDAY 10 AUGUST – GRANTOWN
For the first time Strathspey Thistle FC will have a presence at the annual Grantown Show. Manning the stand will be commercial manager Rob Clark and Lottery Convener and general good guy Graeme Stuart – so if you are attending the show go and have a chat with them – they will be able to answer all your questions about season tickets, potential sponsorship and ways to help the Club and also, how to sign up to play our weekly fundraising lottery – they will be delighted to speak to you and if the weathermen and ladies have got their forecast right it’s going to be a scorcher….
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
SATURDAY 30 SEPTEMBER
That fine purveyors of good solid rock music, and establishing themselves as one of the top musical groups in the North, have very kindly succumbed to pressure and have offered their services at a very very reasonable fee to help with the Jags fundraising drive. Rumours abound that another more aging combo may be the support band. So get there early – the evening starts at 9pm.
The dance at the Royal British Legion Scotland’s Grantown venue will be a ticket only event and tickets for the evening can only be obtained from the venue itself. The cost of each ticket is £10 and payment is cash only. Tickets go on sale on Friday 11 August.
MATCH v FORMARTINE UTD, Saturday 5 August
According to our travelling supporters at Formartine, the boys did well enough – good commitment and keeping their shape but again we gifted three goals – happenings which must be eradicated – I’m sure Rob, Mike and Robbie will be working on this over the next few days before our trip north to Brora.
Our statistics were three shots on goal, five off target, two corners and both James McShane and Owen Patterson were booked.
COME AND HELP
As I have stated before on the website, Strathspey Thistle would be very appreciative of some help in the running the Club – if you are into your football and want to have the satisfaction of watching and getting involved and seeing our local team compete in the Highland League please contact our Secretary Clive Wolstenholme by emailing email@example.com for details.
THE PIE CHART
One of the success stories from Saturday was that Formartine’s pies are very good. Our travelling support say they are going to keep us informed over the season of the some memorable pies available at the Highland League grounds.
As is the case I sign off with the prospect of you winning this weeks jackpot of £1900 – to play click here –
