SEASON 2023/2024

It was another disappointing season on the pitch for the Jags culminating in a very torrid final week with two games home and away against the clubs who finished top and third in the league, who were very intent on topping up their goal difference, which both teams managed to do. 
Our caretaker manager for the final six weeks of the season Michael Rae decided not to renew his contract for family reasons
We wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.
This, as well as some players moving on, then opens the door to a brand new dawn more of which will fully reported when all the pleces of the jigsaw fall into place, but initial reports look very promising.


The victorious Buckie team

All at Strathspey Thistle would like to send our congratulations to the other Jags, Buckie Thistle in their achievement of winning this season’s Breedon Highland League – especially after their finishing sequence of thirteen league games and one cup game over forty-five days. Congratulations also go to Brechin City and Fraserburgh for finishing second and third respectively.

Brechin finished on the same points so the title was decided on goal difference and Jagsweb was very disappointed with some of the comments made by the Brechin chairman in an national newspaper interview.
We were then taken aback in what sounds like a very complicated episode, with the revelations of Buckie’s failure to achieve SFA Bronze status. They needed this to move up to the Scottish League if they were successful in overcoming both East Kilbride of the Lowland League and then Club 42 of the Scottish League.


We recently welcomed Alan Price, who writes for Football Weekend magazine, to our home match against Fraserburgh.
Alan arrived very early and after touring the ground went off to sample the views and delights of the surrounding area, returning for the match and some after-match hospitality.
Football Weekend is a monthly glossy magazine for fans who want to visit various areas of the world and combining it with attending various football matches and stadia – the magazine is available at all good newsagents eg WH Smith and on subscription.

We’ll give more details regarding the magazine when Alan’s article is printed sometime over the summer.

We as a club have been very fortunate over the past couple of seasons to feature in BBC Scotland’s fans TV football show “A View From The Terrace” and widely watched Footy Adventures “The Pointless Club” ( ) as well as FromThe Terraces ( ).


We’d also like to thank Gavin, Tom and Frances from our local newspaper for all the help and coverage they have given the Jags over the past season.


And finally, we would like to thank all the businesses both near and far and our supporters for all the help, especially financially throughout the year….THANK YOU ALL.

Here’s to season 2024-2025……
