Forres Mechanics surrendered a three nil half-time lead to Wick Academy who went on an amazing second half comeback to take all the league points back up north with them. Stuart Soane put the cans on their way with a goal after ten minutes and hit his second seven minutes later. Lee Fraser hit a third just after 20 mins to put his side in the driving seat and all the league points looking like staying at home. Wick, however had other plans and came out in the 2nd half and began their comeback with a goal from Weir followed by another two from Allan and McGregor and bring their side level. Further goals from Anderson and Macadie compounded the misery for the home side and ensure Wick went home with all the league points after an amazing comeback. FT - Forres 3 Wick 5.

It wasn't pretty at times but a left foot daisycutter from Caig Dryburgh in the first half saw the home side take the points in this Ocober 2nd fixture. The Cans then withstood some strong pressure from the visitors but some solid defending and an outstanding display by keeper Aiden Mackenzie saw them through.
Forres Mechanics 2 Buckie Thistle 1
The U15s recorded their first victory of the season in this October 2nd fixture and played some great football in the process, much to the delight of their enthusiastic support. The win was more comfortable than the score-line suggests with the Cans displaying great energy and not a little skill all around the pitch. Shay Ewing and Dom Abbate were on target for the home side with the Buckie counter coming from what can only be described as a very dubious penalty. The win has taken some time but the lads should now kick on with confidence and display the real talent which lies in the team.
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. FT - Lossiemouth 0 Forres 4.
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.
