No game this week for the U17s
Sunday March 12th 2017
Nairn County 5 Forres Mechanics 1
This was a sore one for the Cans. With only 11 players available, the lads began brightly but struggled as legs wearied in midfield. 3-0 down at half time, they staged a mini-comeback in the final quarter, taking advantage of the steady breeze blowing down the lumpy Nairn Academy pitch. Strong running forced the home side into a series of fouls just outside the box and from one of these Centre-back Connor McCartney lashed home the well flighted Sean Douglas free kick. The Cans continued to press till the final whistle but could not add to their tally.
The U17s will be at Nairn this Sunday. Kick off 1pm - venue still to be confirmed but probably Nairn Academy.
Many thanks to our latest sponsor - Keith Builders Merchants.
Whilst the Big Team was going down bravely in the Scottish Cup at Stenhousemuir, Cans' stars of the future were showing off their skills at Mosset Park. The youngsters demonstrated their technique using new equipment and showed off their new training kit - all sponsored by Tesco Forres. The lads (ably supported by parents) then tucked into some healthy options provided by the Tesco Food Hall. A raffle raised over £200 for Youth Development funds.
