HOME GAME v LOSSIEMOUTH FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN-ON-SPEY, PH26 3HY
SATURDAY 28 OCTOBER 2023 – KO 3pm
This Halloween weekend we will be welcoming Lossiemouth FC to Seafield Park to only our third game in October. This match is a monster to the Jags and as we have no league points we hope to be able to get something out of the game.
With a weighted away game start to the season and a couple of cancellations outwith our control, our season has been a bit stop start but we now hope to get a run of fixtures, especially some home games, and to build up a momentum before we get into part of the season where we know the weather will really dictate. The cancellation of the league programme last Saturday due to Storm Babet was the correct decision, as the safety of players and travelling supporters is of paramount importance and always will be.
Lossie currently sit in fifteenth position in the league with five points and this well be the second time we have played them this year as we met in the first round of the GPH Builders Merchants Highland League Cup. We won by a single goal – a penalty scored by Owen Paterson – so I would imagine The Coasters will want revenge.
However, Jags manager Rob MacCormack should have more or less a full squad ready to go, and, hopefully we can get our first three points on the board before the witching hour and the dookin’ for apples starts.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS WILL BE THE LAST 3PM KICK OFF AT SEAFIELD PARK UNTIL MARCH APART FROM OUR GAME AGAINST FORMARTINE ON DECEMBER 16 – KICK OFF WILL BE 2PM – DATES CORRECT AS OF 26 OCTOBER

Recently I have been randomly trawling through my vast library of images and I came across a couple of photos taken on March 22 2009, four months before the Strathspey Thistle played our first game in the Highland League – so as there was no game last week to report, I thought I would share the photos with the JagsBlog readers along with a more up to date drone photo taken four months ago – photo courtesy of our drone guys Mike Shand and Raymond MacWilliam. You can see the floodlights already in place – love the dug outs!
