Solid Win Against Fort William

Mechanics 4 - Fort William 3

The Cans hit real form in this September 18th fixture, racing into a 3 goal lead and then withstanding a Fort William fight back to come out winners in a seven goal thriller. Goalscorers for the home team were Craig Dryburgh and Shane Cameron with a brace apiece.  Craig scored for the second week in succession from a free-kick and Shane's debut could not have gone much better.  There were good performances, though, right across the team.

Fort William Put Cans on Rack

Mechanics 1 - Fort William 14

A heavy defeat of the U15s at the hands of Fort William in this September 18th fixture at Roysvale. The boys played well going forward at times with some strong running in midfield by Robert Oliphant and a well taken goal from Aiden Mackay.  But they need to learn how to defend effectively or it is going to be a long season.

DO Too Strong for Cans

In their September 11th fixture, a stuffy U13s team held out for 30 minutes against DO Soccer but tired and eventually went down 0-8 at home.

Defeat at DO

In their September 11th fixture, the U15s made the long journey to Balintore on the Easter Ross seaboard and went down 1-10 to a fine DO Soccer side. The score-line does a disservice to the Forres boys who buckled down and produced some fine football.  But it was just not to be their day - even the goal was an o.g.!

Cans Go Down at Lossie

In their September 11th fixture, the U17s went down to Lossie after taking an early lead from a well worked indirect kick, Kevin Johnston driving home the layback. Lossie then took control in midfield and went 3-1 up with only a fine Jamie Brown penalty save preventing further damage.  The Cans were given brief hope of a fightback when Craig Dryburgh bent home a beautiful free-kick from 25 yards, but a Lossie penalty clinched things for the home side with ten minutes left.

Heartbreak at Speyside

Speyside Thistle 5  Forres Mechanics 4

 

This opening fixture of the season on August 21st saw heartbreak for a battling Cans' side as they went down to a late strike in a nine-goal thriller at Cromdale. There were great performances all around the park, much to the appreciation of the large travelling support.  Scorers for Forres were Callum Kerrigan (2), Jack Johnston and Neil Owen.

Wick Hand Out a Lesson!

Forres Mechanics 0  Wick Academy 18

 

This September 4th fixture was a real thumping for the home team with a big and skilful Caithness outfit scoring at will in the final period. The Mechanics had two key defenders in Connor Anderson and Ibrahim Beg carried off during the match but by that time the damage to thescoreline had been done. A learning experience for this young Forres team. Both Beg and Anderson will miss the next game away at Tain and the latter may be out for a few weeks.
