HOME GAME v BRORA RANGERS FC
BREEDON HIGHLAND LEAGUE
SEAFIELD PARK, GRANTOWN-ON-SPEY, PH26 3HY
WEDNESDAY 7 FEBRUARY 2024 – KO 8pm
We welcome to Grantown, players, committee and supporters of Brora Rangers on what we hope will be a calm evening under the floodlights at Seafield Park.
Brora who are sitting in 9th place in the league but have only played fifteen games which is five games in hand on the leaders Brechin City – which has been all due to weather postponements and cup duties.
Brora would consider themselves very much title contenders and they will come to Seafield Park intent on getting the win, but as we always say …you never know in football even although their last outing was a good 3-0 win against Deveronvale in Banff.
The last time we played Brora, back in August at Dudgeon Park, we played very well. Two down at half time, we pulled a goal back through Jack Davison but finally losing a very late goal making the score 3-1 to the home side…but for most parts of the game we matched or bettered The Cattachs.
Recent results have not been very kind to the Jags, although generally the performance level has been good, but, we will be anxious to get something out of the game.
We hope that the weather gods are with us too as there will be a pitch inspection at lunchtime Wednesday.
MATCH ON SATURDAY v WICK ACADEMY
As Brora Rangers head down the A9 for their match here in Grantown on Wednesday night, last Saturday we travelled in the opposite direction through Brora and on to Wick for our match against Wick Academy.
Sunshine greeted us but it was cold and there was a very strong wind which Wick took advantage of and were three up by half time and thoughts of our most recent game against Rothes crossed our minds, but the proverbial fitba saying of a game of two halves came true yet again….compulsive scorer Jack Davison scored twice and we very nearly equalised in what was a far more competitive half from our point of view…the strong winds definitely played a major role in the outcome but a good game should be in the offing next Wednesday (14 Feb) when The Scorries arrive at Seafield Park in what might not be described as a Valentine mood….final score at Harmsworth Park was 3-2 to the home team. After their visit, the Jags officials were very complementary to Wick for their hospitality …as always!
A SPECIAL THANK YOU
As I have said before Wednesday night football is more difficult for supporters to attend and we thank all of them very much for making the effort to do so, especially those making the long journeys from Brora and Wick – if you require any information regarding your visit please click here for more information.
If it’s a Tuesday morning this is the place to be…….committee members Graeme Stuart, Donly McLeod, Charlie Sinclair and Alan Mackenzie are joined by superfan Jim Beveridge, in the black and red anorak, for a few hours of pitch repairs. The general consensus was that the pitch was in pretty good shape considering the time of year and the weather we have had in Grantown over the past few weeks. There will be a pitch inspection on Wednesday at midday as there is a chance of some inclement weather as Brora have a bit of travelling to do.
