Forres march through to the next round

Forres Mechanics are through to the 2nd Round of the Scottish Cup after a 4-0 convincing win over local neighbours Lossiemouth at Grant Road.  Forres started the match brighlty and took the lead when a Simon Allan deep free kick saw Graham Fraser rise the highest and put the Cans into a deserved lead after 23 mins. Graham's twin Lee also then got into the act when he got on the end of a Dachi cross from the right to give the away side a comfortable half-time lead. After half-time things got worse for the home side when Scott Graham finished off a great move and score a Forres third goal from all off 18 yards. Lee Fraser then completed a fantastic scoreline for Forres when he nodded in his second of the match from another corner to send the Cans into the next round to meet away either Leith Athletic or Cumbernauld who play in their replay on Wednesday.

Forres pick up first away win of the season

Forres Mechanics came away from a wet Grantown with a first away league win of the season after a 3-1 win which also ended being a double celebration for the club with captain Graeme Grant making his 400th appearance for the club. The first talking point came even before a ball was kicked when Kyle Scott was named as a surprised trialist in the starting eleven and straight away he was involved in the attacking play which also lead to Lee Fraser scoring after 30mins. Kyle was again involved in the second goal when a Simon Allan corner was headed back across the goal for Soane to nod the ball in from yards out to put the Cans into a two goal half-time lead. Strathspey pulled a goal back at the start of the 2nd half after the Cans defence failed to clear the ball and Edwards slid in at the back post to pull his side back into the game. This however was short lived when the Cans again pulled clear when Soane again scored with yet another header to ensure the Cans went home with all three away league points. FT Strathspey 1 Forres 3

Ten minutes later the Cans were back on level terms when a Soane header found the back of the net and the ensure the Cans for the second game in a row end as a draw.  FT - Forres 2 Clach 2
