AWAY MATCH v INVERURIE LOCO WORKS FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
HARLAW PARK, INVERURIE, AB51 6AN
SATURDAY 7 OCTOBER 2023, KO – 3pm
After another weekend with nae fitba’ we’re on the road to Inverurie and Harlow Park – home of Inverurie Locos Works FC.
Although formed in 1902, it was 2001 before they gained entry to the Highland League so there is a lot of history from the formation by a group of Great North of Scotland Railway workers in a meeting in the Railway Works Hall at the start of the last century until one hundred and twenty one years later.
The Locos are not having the best of seasons culminating last month in dispensing with the services of managerAndy Low, so they will be looking to keep all three points in the home locker but the Jags have been improving their performances weekly – the final scores may show differently – but we have played most of the top-seeded teams in the league, and mainly away from home, so, hopefully this Saturday everything clicks and we leave Inverurie with the three points.
Unfortunately injury will keep captain James McShane on the sidelines again this week but everyone is raring to go and we wish Robert and the boys all the best in this very important fixture. With the Locos lying one point and one place ahead of us in the league all rails lead to Harlaw Park 3pm Saturday!!!
LAST SATURDAY’S WICK GAME
Or….last Saturday’s non-game.
Unfortunately due to a road accident on the A9 near Brora which closed the road in both directions, the Wick Academy FC bus could not complete the journey to Grantown – then began a rapid operation in trying to inform all supporters of both teams that the game was off.
There were a few who did arrive at the gate who did not hear or read about the postponement. They were gracious in accepting the news and two ground hoppers from Aberdeen were offered a tour of the ground which possibly slightly helped in their disappointment.
As yet, there has been no date confirmed for when the match will be played.
Strathspey Thistle Football Club would like to thank everyone who attended the fundraising dance in the Legion in Grantown last Saturday night- 30 Sept.
