This Wednesday, we switch the floodlights on and we welcome Huntly FC and their supporters to Seafield Park.
Huntly currently sit in seventh place in the league and have consolidated themselves over the past few years with performances that has made them a steady middle of table club.
So we will have it tough to take any point off the Black and Golds.
Having had an unsuccessful November so far, Huntly will want to get back to winning ways. The Jags will will want them to continue that run, and, hopefully afterwards we can look forward to our next home game on Saturday with some more points in the bag!

SATURDAY’S GAME v CLACHNACUDDIN
Grant Street Park was the venue for our latest Breedon Highland League match last Saturday – and if there were any neutrals watching, the ten pounds spent on their ticket must have been best value for a long time!
Our observers at the game were delighted with our first half performance which, apart from playing exceptionally well, saw us scoring three goals – Liam Shewan (29mins), Daniel Whithehorn (33) and Ross Logan (43) and going in 3-0 up.
However a different Clach team emerged after their half-time cuppa and we found ourselves level and and man down before Jack Davison put us back in the lead with only minutes of the ninety to go – Liam Shewan was sent off in the seventy-fifth minute in what we thought was a 50/50 tackle but it earned him a second yellow.
But…. in extra time on roughly the last kick of the ball Clach equalised from a free kick just outside of our penalty area. Both teams had given their all on what was a very heavy pitch, in conditions we encounter frequently over the winter and both teams sportingly congratulated each other on the final whistle.
Although we took away one point from Inverness, which may prove very valuable later on in the season, it still felt like we had left two points behind.
