Wick Academy Pre-Season Friendly Summary

Wick Academy v Ross County - 30th June.

Academy started their pre-season with a visit from Ross County on the 30th June. The game started with a bit of confusion with a clash of kit colours making it difficult for the players and spectators to tell the teams apart. After 8 minutes or so Academy changed to our yellow away tops and that solved the issue.

County's young squad started the better of the two sides and scored after 20 minutes when Joel MacBeath cut in on the by-line from the left and marched into the penalty area. With no County takers in the box for a cross he tried his hand from the tightest of angles with a low shot and the ball squirmed through McCarthy in the Academy goal and into the net.

The goal sparked Academy and Craig Gunn came close with a shot that whistled just past the right-hand post. County Keeper Joe Williams was sharp to get down to his left to save a Sam Mackay free-kick turning it for a corner. The resulting corner was swung in by Gunn, half-cleared and fell at the feet of Davie Allan who hammered home high into the roof of the net.

The sides went into the half-time break at 1-1, but Academy really started to click during the second period. Jack Halliday tested keeper Williams on 53 minutes when he made a good save from Halliday's 25 yard drive, and minutes later he saved again when Marc McGregor directed the ball goalward following a scramble at the back post.

Academy's 2nd came on 73 minutes when Davie Allan demonstrated his blistering pace driving forward down the left wing, turned his marker twice before cutting the ball back for Craig Gunn to drive home into the bottom corner of the net with a well-taken goal.

The County youngsters proved to be good test however and almost drew level but substitute Michael Steven cleared off the line.

Academy put the game to bed on 86 minutes. Gary Manson swung in a freekick on the right of the penalty area. The ball ended up in the corner of the net with Davie Allan claiming it skimmed off his head, Gary however also had a shout that the goal was his.

Full Time - Wick Academy 3 - Ross County 1

Wick Academy v Orkney - 7th July

Academy welcomed Orkney to Harmsworth Park and reclaimed the Ken Green Challenge Cup with a 3-1 victory.

The visitors had the better of the first half and took the lead on 24 minutes. Sean McCarthy came wide out of his box but sliced a routine clearance which fell to Liam Delday. He had a chance to hit it first time with McCarthy out of position but he kept his cool to run in and fire home a right foot shot into the bottom corner of the net.

5 minutes later Academy drew level. Gordie MacNab latched onto a ball that was played over the top of the Orkney back-line by Sam Mackay. With Orkney covering back MacNab held the ball up, before making some room, turning his marker Wayne Lirkness, and he lashed home a stunner into the top left-hand corner of the net.

It wasn't long before MacNab turned provider for Academy's second goal of the game. He did well up the left wing, cut into the box holding off his marker before squaring for Richard Macadie who drilled it home with a sweet strike.

Just before the break Ross Allan landed awkwardly after jumping for a high ball and unfortunately, he was stretched off the field with what sounded like a bad ankle injury.  He was whisked away to hospital by ambulance, but news followed that an x-ray didn't seem to show any signs of a fracture, so we hope we will see Ross back in action soon.

Academy pretty much killed the game within a minute of the second-half re-start. Jack Halliday got a powerful shot on target that keeper Cameron McConnachie managed to block, but the ball fell to the feet of the on-rushing MacNab and he converted the re-bound from close-range.

MacNab almost grabbed his hat-trick. A ball over the top fell to Craig Gunn who ran in on goal, drew the keeper before cutting back to MacNab who got a shot on target, but the Orkney keeper managed to recover and somehow get something on it to divert it over the ross-bar.

McConnachie was a busy man in the Orkney goal this time denying Sam Mackay who tried to chip him.

Substitute Kyle Drever did have the ball in the back of the net for Orkney just before full time, but it was ruled as off-side.

Full Time - Wick Academy 3 - Orkney 1
