Cans Thrash Buckie

Sunday, March 19th

Buckie  1 - Forres Mechanics 8


The Cans' babes delivered a real thrashing to a stuffy Buckie outfit in this latest away game.  There were excellent performances around the team.  With Cameron Watt and Lewis McIntosh dominating in midfield, the goals began to flow and were shared by Sam Janousek, Callum Clark (2) and Logan de Oliviera who was in rampant form bagging no fewer than four. The other strike was a Buckie own goal.

Cans Take Giant Strides

Sunday March 19th


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.

Cans Go Down at Alness

Sunday  March 12th


Alness 6  Forres Mechanics 0


After the heroics of recent weeks, the Cans came back to earth with a crash as they went down heavily at Alness.  The scoreline does not tell the whole story, however, as the team battled hard throughout.  The defence, though, just could not handle one of the Easter Ross's forward line - a prospect who must already have excited the interest of major league scouts.

Thriller at Nairn

Sunday  March 12th


Nairn County 5  Forres Mechanics  3


In a thrilling and at times contentious game on the Nairn astro-turf, Forres eventually went down with all guns blazing.


Pick of the goals was perhaps Callum Kerrigans bullet header from a corner on the left but Robert Oliphant continued his good form and goal-scoring, on this occasion picking up a brace. There were good performances around the team with Callum Souter having his best game in a Cans' jersey, Shay Ewing solid in midfield and Rory Gerrie a bag of tricks on the wing.  Substitute Adam Thomson also stamped his mark on the match, spraying around some fine passes in difficult conditions as a steady, Spring breeze bore down the pitch.
