Lee Fraser hit his 100th goal for the club as the Cans moved into the next round of the League Cup with a 5-2 win at Keith. It took only to the 1st minute when a Simon Allan free kick from the left was headed in by Lee Fraser who celebrated his 100 goals after 210 appearances for the club. Eight minutes the Cans were two in front after a Simon Allan corner was headed home from Ross McPherson. Just after the 23 mins Keith pulled a goal back from Barbour and the half ended with Forres just in front. The second half started like the first half with Forres yet again on the score sheet but this time through John Cameron and 15 mins later Cameron hit his 2nd from a powerful run and a perfect pass by Simon Allan. After 72 mins Keith pulled another back from Hale but on the 90th minutes they scored again but this time in their own net to put Forres into the next round of the cup against Buckie Thistle. F/T - Keith 2 Forres 5.

Alan Pollock opened his account for the club with a goal after 42 mins after the home side had taken the lead through Stark. Stuart Soane then put the Cans ahead with a goal bang on half-time. In the 2nd half the home side were back in the game with a penalty from Davidson just before the hour mark, but Lee Fraser hit back with his 98th and 99th goals for the club to put the Cans firmly in the lead. Further goals from John Cameron and Ross McPherson capped off a great day all round for the club. F/T - Forres 2 Strathspey Thistle 0 & F/T Fort William 2 Forres 6.

We love a bit of history here at Cancans HQ.
This is an original North of Scotland Cup winners medal won by A. Baigrie in March 1927, rght in the middle of a quite remarkable period in the history of the club.
The medal, framed by Theresa Lyden has just been presented to the club by lifelong Cancans fan Mike Gowers. It was spotted by Paul Wilson and Mike secured a bid to buy it with a group of fellow supporters chipping in. The medal will take pride of place in the trophy cabinet at Mosset Park
