Forres Mechanics 4 Dingwall 5
After yet another tremendous fightback, the Cans came up short in this latest thrilling encounter at Roysvale. The game ended in defeat, but every Forres player gave his all - and Dingwall a real fright. After all, this was the team which had pretty well thrashed the Cans back in November, yet it was the Easter Ross outfit which was hanging on desperately at the end. Our boys have made giant strides in the interim. The goalscoring was shared by Robert Oliphant, Connor Anderson, Neil Owen and Callum Kerrigan.
It's a pity the season is approaching its close. The lads are playing with a real confidence and not a little skill. Those twice weekly trips to Nairn to access decent training facilities are draining for players, coaches and parents and it is unacceptable that we are forced to go to another town for four months to train. But the commitment and hard work are delivering on the field.
