The winners of the Lossiemouth and Forres Scottish Cup replay will play away to Leith or Cumbernauld Cotts in the 2nd Round with the tie being on Saturday the 22nd of October.
Forres Mechanics goalkeeper Stuart Knight scored a dramatic last minute header to earn a Scottish Cup replay against Lossiemouth at Mosset Park. Forres took the lead from a strike from Lee Fraser after Lossiemouth failed to clear a corner after only 9 minutes and it remained that way until half-time. 10mins into the 2nd half Lossiemouth were back in the game when they were awarded a penalty which also resulted in captain Graeme Grant being shown a red card after a challenge on Ross Archibald and Scott Millar drilled home the spot kick. Lossiemouth then took the lead when the former Cans striker smashed home a 30 yard drive. Deep into injury time Forres were heading out the cup until Knight went up the field for the corner and met Allans cross to send Mosset Park into wild celebrations and earn another crack in the cup next week. FT Forres 2 Lossiemouth 2.
Forres Mechanics made it two wins in a row with the defeat of Fort William at Mosset Park with Kyle Scott named yet again in the starting line-up and also found his name on the scoresheet after only 3 minutes with a header from a free-kick. Lee Fraser then doubled the home sides lead with another header, but this time from a corner, and just before half-time John Cameron make it three for the Cans with a overhead kick and take the Cans into a comfortable half-time lead. Forres then made sure of the points and also remain underfeated in their last five league games when Cameron netted his second of the match after 76 mins. FT - Forres 4 Fort William 0.
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
Forres Mechanics came back from 2-1 to force a draw against Clach on Saturday at Mosset Park. Forres did take the lead when a Soane diving header was enough to seperate the sides at half-time. Clach came back into the game on the hour mark when Lawrie took advantage of a defensive mix-up from the home side and then went into the lead six minutes later through Ian Penwright. 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
Forres Mechanics have been drawn at home with local rivals Lossiemouth FC in the 1st round of the Scottish Cup with the tie to be played on Saturday, 24th of September with a 3pm kick-off. Hopefully the Cans will repeat the scoreline in the same competition last season when they came away with a 4-1 win.
Forres Mechanics travelled to Formartine Utd and came away with a worthy point but would have been unhappy not to come away with all three points after being two goals up within the half hour mark. The Cans took the lead with a trademark free-kick from Scott Graham and then doubled their lead when Martin Groat scored his first competitive goal for the club and take his side into a impressive half-time lead. Seven minutes into the 2nd half Formartine pulled a goal through Scott Barbour and 15 mins later were back level with a goal from Graham Rodger and send both clubs home with a point a piece.
Forres Mechanics came back from a goal down to record our second and much needed league win of the new season. Keith, however did take the lead after 35 mins with a 20 yard free-kick from Whelan to take his side in front over the interval but John Cameron sprung the Keith offside trap to equalise and score his 1st competitve goal for the club on just about the hour mark. Lee Fraser then came of the bench and put the Cans in front with a pile driver from the right side of the park and then Forres went into a 3-1 lead when Keith defender Clark put the ball into his own net just before Scott Graham hit another Forres goal with a stunning free-kick to give the Cans the full three points.
Forres Mechanics travelled to the home of the League leaders today and came away with no points and no goals scored to show for their efforts. The first half started badly for Forres when they had to make a substitution after only five mins when Craig McGovern limped off with a knock to his knee and then were forced into a second change after 35 mins when Lee Fraser had to come off with a head wound which disrupted the side, so it was no suprise when Buckie took the lead just before half-time through John McLeod. The second half didn't get much better for Forres when McLeod scored again with his second and then Sam Urquhart added Buckie's third to ensure the home sides great start to the season continue. FT Buckie Thistle 3 Forres 0.
Forres Mechanics lost an early goal when Dean Cowie scored just after 6 minutes and 25 minutes later they were two down when Marc Lawrence doubled his sides lead to take the away side into the half-time break ahead. Both clubs were unable to take their chances in the second half to leave Fraserburgh taking all three league points away with them. FT Forres 0 Fraserburgh 2
