Wick went into this match missing 4 first team defensive and midfield regulars in Michael and Grant Steven, Gary Manson and Gordon McNab and for the first few minutes it looked like attack was going to be the new defence for the home team.

Within 3 minutes Ross Allan was allowed to drive down the left into the 18 yard box but his shot flew just over the bar. Within 3 minutes Sam Mackay found space at the left edge of the 6 yard box but his shot went just wide of the post and, a minute later, Steven Anderson beat Strathspey's Cameron Lisle down the left wing - switched play across the pitch to Andrew Hardwick who was about to shoot when flagged offside by the assistant referee.

The match then went through a battle of the midfield until, after 15 minutes Strathspey's Dominick Edwards broke down the left to the by-line and crossed the ball onto the penalty spot - Although the ball was initially cleared by Danny Mackay it was immediately returned into the box but as keeper Sean McCarthy came to collect the ball he was clattered in mid-air by Strathspey's Adam Mcleod.  Free kick to Wick.

A minute later a free kick for Strathspey saw the ball crossed into the penalty spot and once again Wick keeper Sean McCarthy was taken out mid-air by Adam McLeod. A free kick to Wick and a word of warning by referee Billy Baxter to the Strathspey defender.

Academy reverted to attacking mode and after a move down the left by Steven Anderson his ball found Sam Mackay whose curling shot just shaved the wrong side of the left post.  The next goal attempt for Wick came 5 minutes later when Danny Mackay met a Jack Halliday corner putting the ball just over the bar. Perhaps a sighter for what was to come in the second half.

Although Wick had had some good chances their first goal, when it came on 27 minutes, was more than a bit unfortunate for Strathspey  - Marc Macgregor flicked the ball towards goal from a cross in from Steven Anderson, Strathspey keeper Michael Macallum kicked the ball clear but his clearance ricocheted of defender Euan Donaldson and keeper Macallum could do nothing to stop the ball from crossing the line.

The next good chance for Academy came after a free kick was awarded to Wick 22 yards out and  Sam Mackay's strike crashed off the cross bar and cleared by Strathspey's Scott Hume.  Sam Mackay looked to be warming to the task and a few minutes later had a header from the edge of the 6 yard box tipped over the bar by the Strathspey keeper.

There was still time at the end of the first half for Strathspey to mount another attack of their own with New Zealander Dominick Edwards driving down the left but Wick's Andrew Hardwick stood his ground and after a tussle between the two players came away with the ball.

Show Racism The Red Card

Wick Academy Supports "Show Racism the Red Card"

Welcome to Show Racism the Red Card's annual Fortnight of Action. Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years; the Scottish FA, SPFL, SJFA and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland.

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC's work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from 6th - 20th October shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

We believe that it is vital to highlight the anti-racism message at this time of year as it runs alongside Football Against Racism in Europe's (FARE) Football People Weeks.

All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend on Friday 13th October and Saturday 14th October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European Countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

Show Racism the Red Card has received excellent support from football clubs, football authorities and football fans the length and breadth of Scotland - we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. We have heard of many instances where supporters have been proactive in promoting the anti-racism message, making it clear that racism and discrimination are not welcome at their club. We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.

Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPFL said "Football is a powerful medium to break down barriers and promote tolerance. Our clubs have supported Show Racism the Red Card since season 2003/04 and once again, this united action in support of the campaign sends out the positive message that football is a game to be enjoyed by all."

The campaign will continue to speak to all football clubs, the football authorities and the police to eradicate all forms of racist behaviour.

The Scottish FA, SPFL, SJFA and its clubs deplore all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated at Scottish FA, SPFL or SJFA matches.

Over the past year Show Racism the Red Card has faced major funding difficulties but we strive to continue our work. We are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
