Stephen Kelly scoring against Deveronvale at Seafield Park in August 2022.

So it’s a return to the coast and to the Princess Royal Park in Banff and our return meeting this season with Deveronvale FC.
As it was our only win of the season so far, I would imagine The Vale will be out to reverse that and by doing so keep all three points in Banff.
Although only two places above us in the league sitting in sixteenth place, Deveronvale have accumulated nineteen points by having won four games and drawing seven and as both teams try to recover from heavy defeats this week a hard fought match is very much in store and we wish Mike Rae and his boys all the best. 


Again, it was a game of two halves – After a very very poor first half performance we found ourselves four-nil down at the break. Again a mention must be made of young Ethan Rae in goal with some excellent saves – one in particular, tipping the ball over the bar from a shot from about twenty yards out in what was definitely goal bound. In the second half we improved and despite Owen Loveland converting a penalty in the sixty-third minute we lost a further two goals making the final score 6-1 to Wick…not a good day at the office!!

Maybe playing three games in seven days took its toll…..

After Saturday’s game we have no game midweek and look forward to next Saturday’s visit to Seafield Park from Clachnacuddin and please remember we will be back to a 3pm kick off.

As ever we conclude this week’s meanderings offering you a jackpot win of £5000 on our online fundraising lottery – click here if you want to play…

As intimated after the current jackpot, has been won therefore completing that game there will be couple of changes.

There will still be a weekly prize of £100 for a consolation winner if their entry matches four of the five numbers drawn, however instead of a weekly increase in the jackpot of £100, this will now be increased monthly. 

The game is to forecast 5 winning numbers, which are drawn at random, from 1-20. The 5 numbers chosen are to be marked by a cross (X).

  1. The Jackpot prize starts at £1,000 and the game continues until it is won and starts afresh. As applicable, the Jackpot increases by £100 immediately after the first draw in each calendar month, up to a maximum of £5,000. The Jackpot is then capped at £5,000 until it is won in a weekly draw. 
  2. If more than one player has 5 winning numbers, the Jackpot will be divided equally among the winning players. 
  3. Should no entry forecast all 5 winning numbers, then any player matching 4 numbers will be entered into a draw for a single Consolation Prize of £100
  4. THE DRAW will take place every SUNDAY at 7pm unless otherwise advised.
  5. The entrant named on the ticket must be at least 16 years of age.
  6. All winners will be notified.
