The Jags are delighted to announce the signing of Dylan Lawrence from Elgin City.

Dylan will not be a stranger to Seafield Park as he was here for some of the 21/22 season before being re-called to Elgin.
Co-Manager Bobby Beckwith is looking forward to Dylan playing regularly “as he scores goals, he’s quick and he’s strong. Dylan is still a young lad and his best days are very much ahead of him.”.
Dylan is our fifteenth new signing as The Jags totally revamp our playing squad and everyone associated with the Club both on and off the park, and on the “terraces” are really looking forward how the new faces will perform.


On Saturday (29th) we welcome last season’s HL winners Buckie Thistle to Seafield Park (KO 2pm). 
This is an SFA approved friendly and as such there will be a referee and two assistant referees so there will be an admittance charge of £5 per adult. For this game there will be no charge for concessions ie over-60’s and ages 12 to 15 and under 12’s accompanied by an adult will, as usual, get in free – as will anyone in a Strathspey Rovers shirt!!
Co-Manager Bobby Beckwith was quoted in the P&J this week saying that The Jags have revamped their entire squad this summer and was very happy with the business they have been able to do.
“I think we’re more or less there in terms of what we’re looking for with the squad. The club has done very well to bring in the players we have done and now it’s up to us to see what we can do on the pitch. We’ll be stronger this season and it’s up to us all to make everything click to move the club forward.”

With a brand new team on the park and a brand new set up off the park, we are hoping that a lot of local support will turn out and we look forward back to welcoming them to Seafield Park for what hopefully will be an exciting new dawn for the Jags.

STFC is delighted to have entered into a strategic partnership with Balloan FC in regards to youth development.

Pictured are James Fraser, chairperson of Balloan FC, Jags co-manager Bobby Beckwith and Director of Football, Fraser Tulloch and James said that he was “thrilled to be part of the new partnership marking a significant milestone in Balloan’s history”

He then went on to say “that the success of their youth teams in the Moray Firth Youth League and Highland Football League over the past few years has been nothing short of remarkable and heaped praise on the hard work of the coaching staff, committee members and the community. The teams have recently won both the under-16 and and under-18 in their respective regions as well as the winning the overall under-16 title for the association. The partnership will hopefully create a path for promising young players to achieve their full potential”  

Jags’ Director of Football Fraser Tulloch said “I am delighted Strathspey Thistle will work in partnership with Balloan FC.  Both clubs recognise the importance of discovering and nurturing both players and the coaching support staff behind them.  

The DNA of STFC long-term needs to support the development of our own local players, and combined with Balloan this strengthens our goal to create opportunities for northern talent to feel safe and express themselves.”

Committee member Heather Horton organised a special fund raising event at the Speyside Hotel in Grantown coinciding with Ladies Day at Royal Ascot which raised funds for The Jags and the Highland Hospice.

Lasting from 12.30 until 5pm, there were thirty ladies and gents in attendance. 
The lovely 2 course lunch consisted of a choice of salmon with potatoes and vegetables or breadcrumbed chicken as main with a lemon possett to follow. 
Andrea took the best dressed lady trophy and prize and Gordon took home the best dressed gentleman. 
It was a lovely afternoon with the winner donating their winnings to the 2 receiving beneficiaries- STFC and the Highland Hospice. 

Using our facilities on Wednesday at Seafield Park and the adjoining field, were Badenoch Shinty Memories who were liaising with (with assistance from senior GGS pupils) to allow residents of Lynemore Care Home the opportunity to experience the joy of cycling through access to lightweight pedal cycles of bespoke specialist design.
