SATURDAY 6 APRIL 2024 – KO 3pm

As we enter April the league begins to draw to a close and this week we visit The Haughs and Turriff United.  This time we hope to play a good bit better than we did did when we last met at Seafield Park in November, when we were hammered by eight goals to one – not an afternoon we want to remember.

So, hopefully, Mike and the rest of the gang will be able to curb the enthusiasm of the Turra team and put in a good shift so we can leave with heads held high, home for a few days respite!
After Turriff on Saturday we have four games left and a busy seven days it is going to be…..on Saturday the 13th we have Fraserburgh, currently in second place in the league at Seafield Park, followed by fellow title contenders Buckie Thistle at Buckie on Monday 15th then it’s back to Seafield Park on Wednesday 17th for our home match against Buckie then culminating on the Saturday the 20th with the away match at Fraserburgh….not the ending any team would want to finish their league campaign with, especially the one that is sitting on the bottom of the table……but as we always say you just never know in football….and having said that, Buckie will be playing ten games between the March 20 and April 20…!!…and as they also say….it’s tough at the top!

So to recap with confirmed dates from the Highland League are the following rearranged fixtures.
Saturday April 13 v Fraserburgh (H) KO 3pm
Monday April 15 Buckie Thistle (A) KO 8pm
Wednesday April 17 v Buckie Thistle (H) KO 8pm
Saturday April 20 v Fraserburgh (A) KO 3pm, our scheduled last game of the season.


Even although our drainage system is admired by many, sometimes the elements fight against you as was the occurrence we had last week at Seafield Park. We had a huge downpour thirty minutes before kick off during the pre-match warm up which continued more or less throughout the first half –  the result of which was a mightily ripped up Seafield Park as the photo taken on Sunday morning shows ….but the second half was a calm spring afternoon with blue sky…..the joys of a Scottish “spring” –
As I reported earlier in the week Nairn managed the conditions better and were well worthy of their 3-0 lead by half time. The Jags more or less dominated much of the second half and had four really excellent scoring chances, none of which were converted unfortunately and a very good penalty shout, before Nairn scored again in the dying minutes of the game.

Seafield Park on Sunday morning after Saturday’s torrential rain.

Sadly, the weather conditions turned most of the pitch into a quagmire and with that, the obvious damage to the playing surface. With ten days to our next home match we’re hoping that the weather will now be kind and help the pitchfixers in their task of getting the surface back to the condition it was before.


This week  we are offering you a jackpot win of £5300 on our online fundraising lottery – click here if you want to play…


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.

So that’s all Jags fans this week and hopefully we will see you at Seafield Park next Saturday in a Breedon Highland League match against high flying Fraserburgh FC – kick off 3pm.
