The winners of the Lossiemouth and Forres Scottish Cup replay will play away to Leith or Cumbernauld Cotts in the 2nd Round with the tie being on Saturday the 22nd of October.
Forres Mechanics goalkeeper Stuart Knight scored a dramatic last minute header to earn a Scottish Cup replay against Lossiemouth at Mosset Park. Forres took the lead from a strike from Lee Fraser after Lossiemouth failed to clear a corner after only 9 minutes and it remained that way until half-time. 10mins into the 2nd half Lossiemouth were back in the game when they were awarded a penalty which also resulted in captain Graeme Grant being shown a red card after a challenge on Ross Archibald and Scott Millar drilled home the spot kick. Lossiemouth then took the lead when the former Cans striker smashed home a 30 yard drive. Deep into injury time Forres were heading out the cup until Knight went up the field for the corner and met Allans cross to send Mosset Park into wild celebrations and earn another crack in the cup next week. FT Forres 2 Lossiemouth 2.
Brora Rangers 2 - Forres Mechanics 0
A keen Autumnal wind blowing right down the Brora pitch really decided the issue in this September 25th fixture. Put simply, the Cans harnessed the elements in the first half, hit woodwork twice, had two goalbound efforts scrambled off the line, but failed to score. Brora on the other hand managed two goals downwind and were further aided at various stages of the second half by injuries to defenders Logan Ward and Connor McCartney, as well as goalie Jamie Brown. Not the Cans' day.
Dingwall 8 - Forres Mechanics 0
A heavy defeat away in this September 25th encounter at Victoria Park but a vastly improved performance by the Cans. The lads played some excellent passing football and Robert Oliphant was unlucky enough to hit woodwork twice. That elusive win looms larger.
After a couple of games as a trialist the club are delighted to announce the signing of Kyle Scott until the end of the season. Since leaving the club after the birth of baby Ellie Hope, Kyle has enjoyed a little spell playing welfare football but has also managed to enjoy a few social days at Mechanics events.
His recent appearances at Strathspey and at home to Fort William have proved he still has a lot to offer Mechanics and Highland football, even picking up the Man of the Match at the weekend.
