Biography

Richard Hughes: Former Academy striker 'Tichie' played in the North Caledonian League team in the late 70s as a teenager. Scored a memorable goal past Henry Smith in a friendly against Hearts on the 30th of July 1984.
Made his Highland League debut against Cove Rangers on the 6th of August 1994 under manager at the time John MacDonald. His first goal came 3 games later in a HL Cup tie against Clachnacuddin at Grant Street Park.
From season 1994/95 he started 117 games for Academy, and scored 32 goals. At time of writing he remains the clubs seventh highest goal scorer. Tichie took over as co-manager of the Scorries with Zeeky in January 2007 following the departure of Peter Budge.
Tichie and co-manager Zeeky were voted as Highland League Managers of the year for season 2009/10 after steering Academy to a 5th place finish in the table, our highest ever league position, after a 10 game winning streak.

Ian Munro: Ian 'Zeeky' Munro has a long association with Wick Academy Football Club.
Ian made his debut as an 18 year old in the North Caledonain League in season 1978/79. He missed only one season for Academy, when he played for Bunillidh Thistle in 1984/85, and then continued playing with Academy until 1994, usually on the right wing.
In 1989 he shocked Huntly with a 3rd minute goal in the Qualifying Cup at Christie Park but his effort was in vain and Academy were unlucky to loose 3-2.
From 1994 he took his coaching certificates and assisted Pat Miller at Halkirk and has since been involved as a coach with Academy since 1999.
Ian took over as co-manager with Tichie in January 2007 following the departure of Peter Budge.
Ian and co-manager Tichie were voted as Highland League Managers of the year for season 2009/10 after steering Academy to a 5th place finish in the table, our highest ever league position, after a 10 game winning streak.
