February 2006 - Team and Club News

Friday February 24th:
League leaders Deveronvale are Academys visitors tomorrow. Academy will be without Martin Gunn who was injured in last weekends game with Buckie, but Don MacMiIllan's recovery has progressed enough that he should be available for selection.
Deveronvale inflicted a 5-0 defeat on Academy when we played them at Princes Royal Park in October. Lets hope Academy can return the favour tomorrow.

Friday February 17th:
Don MacMiIllan hasn't fully recovered from his knee injury and looks doubtful for tomorrows away trip to Buckie, so James More looks likely to start again. Also unavailabe for selection will be Andrew Macleod and Murray Coghill. Andrew has other commitments, and Murray missed training this week.

Friday February 10th:

Academy welcome Keith to the Harmsworth park tomorrow. Alistairs only doubt for the game is Don MacMiIllan. Don missed lasts weeks game with Huntly due to a knee knock, and he may not be fit in time for tomorrows game. Stand in keeper James More is at hand to step in if required.

Keith did the league double over Academy last year, and they have already beat Academy 1 - 0 at Kynoch park when they met last October. Lets hope the boys can return the favour tomorrow and open up a gap with Lossiemouth.

Lossie are away to Forres tomorrow, and with the Can Cans sitting in 4th place in the table with games in hand, that won't be an easy place to go and take points from.

Saturday February 4th:
Good news from Christie Park - they phoned this morning at 8:00am and the pitch is fine, so game on. The bus left Wick at 8:30am. Unfortunately Alistair was not able to travel to todays game, so Zeeky and Tichie are in charge. Academy are 5/1 for a win, 3/1 for a draw, but hopefully the boys can come back up the road with some points. (Huntly won 2 - 0)

Friday February 3rd:
Academy have a full sqaud available for tomorrows game against Huntly. Paul MacCallum is back from suspension and Murray Coghill has recovered from his injury.

The Huntly pitch was inspected at tea-time tonight by a registered referee and was deemed to be playable. It rained today in Huntly, and frost is not expected through the night, so hopefully the game will take place.
