    Days of Old

    Forres have had many notable players over the years. In 1910/11 a Forres side featuring "Suff" Nicol, a player who had signed from Forres to play two seasons with Hearts and now had returned to Mosset Park achieve an enviable record. The team played Elgin four times in eight weeks, each in a different cup, winning each game. In the early 1920's names such as 'Chatter' Taylor and 'Doodle' Dickie attracted much interest as well as scoring many goals and regular pics for Highland select teams.

    Player Success

    The very successful team in the late 40's to mid 50's features names like Wisniewski, Kinloch and MacIntosh. A number of glamour ties during this time against the like of Motherwell, Clyde and Celtic attracted attention. Robert Kinloch was signed by Hibs and James MacIntosh by Falkirk. MacIntosh went on to play for Scotland under 23's against Holland and England. To date the only Forres Player to have been capped for Scotland.
