Royal Gift

You might not think it but the Royal Engineers AFC and the Cans have some things in common.  Just like the club, the Royal Engineers came into existence in the late 1800's and just like us they were instrumental in helping establish league and cup structures still in place to this day. Established in 1871, success for the Magnificent Royal Engineers came fairly quickly.  Royal Engineers AFC will forever hold a place in history as the first team to win an FA Cup Final replay doing so against the Old Etonians in March 1875.  The presentation in the picture took place at Mosset Park before the home tie against Turriff United on the 6th October 2012 following the original presentation in July.  In the picture the club are presented with this memento to celebrate new links between the club and the Engineers to mark their arrival at their new home at Kinloss Barracks.  Already the club have seen benefits of this new friendship with some of the new arrivals training with the club and the Forres players making use of facilities at Kinloss. The club welcome the arrival of the Royal Engineers to the area and look forward to developing further relationships as they settle into their new home.

What's in a Name?

There has been much debate over the years and many interesting theories as to why the club has a unique title. Some suggest the name is linked to the Mechanics Institute (now the Town Hall). Others suggest the name came from the many men who came from the South to work on the new railway line being constructed. To find the best authority on the origins of the name we need to look at the writings of Colin G. Watson (Many will know him as 'Yankee'). In 1984 Colin published a very insightful and well researched book, 'FORRES MECHANICS The First Hundred Years'.

In the book Colin suggests the following:

Despite being the oldest Association Football Club in the North of Scotland, Forres Mechanics were not at the time of their formation the oldest club in the town of Forres, there having been in existence for fully two years the St. Lawrence Club.

Colin goes on to explain that some members of this club appeared to be out of favour and failed to feature in games against local rivals.
