Rothes 6 Forres 0
The U15s went down to a very competent Rothes team at Mackessack Park on August 28th. The lads were unlucky not to take the lead in the opening half hour in fact with new signing Aiden Mackay particularly unfortunate in front of goal. Rothes were worth their win in the end but three goals in the final 15 minutes does not reflect a very good performance from the Mechanics.
At Mosset Park last week, Forres Mechanics signed up eighteen of the district’s most talented under-15 players. The boys donned their new strips and enjoyed a short session on the superbly presented home pitch.
Coach Stuart Quilter was full of praise for the new squad, “We have a great blend of lads this season. There is no doubt that we will score goals with real pace up front and in midfield. We also have a very solid back line, so look forward to the season with confidence.”
The boys kicked off the season on Sunday, 21 st August just losing out in a nine goal thriller at Strathspey. Scorers for the Cans were Johnston, Owen and Kerrigan (2).
