Good passing football by both Wick and Rothes made the first half of this match an entertaining affair despite its lack of goals.  Lack of goals did not mean a lack of creativity or chances though -  and first to test a goalkeeper was Wick's Gordon McNab after 9 minutes when his low shot had Rothes keeper Darren McConnachie scrambling to his right to gather the ball.

Rothes immediately broke up field with the ball finding Scott Davidson inside the 18 yard box but Danny Mackay was quick enough to get a foot to the ball sending it out for a corner.  The next real chance fell to Wick after neat passing between Steven Anderson and Gordon McNab left McNab in space 12 yards out from goal - but the Academy man pulled his shot well wide of the post.

Despite the good football on show and the teams swapping attacks neither keeper was really troubled again until the 25th minute when Rothes Jamie Wilson made his way into the 18 yard box, turned defender Ross Allan, and unleashed a shot that had Wick keeper Sean McCarthy diving low to his right to push the ball away.

Academy were then straight back up the field with Steven Anderson powering down the left wing. He cut into the 6 yard box unchallenged but, while his left foot shot beat the Rothes keeper the ball ran just wide of the far post.

The best chance of the first half fell to Rothes' Craig Cameron on the half hour, when, after finding the gap between Wick's Jack Henry and Danny Mackay inside the penalty box, his right foot shot had Wick keeper Sean McCarthy beaten but the ball crashed back off the top of the right hand post.

Rothes gathered momentum , Ross Allan had a timely intervention on the edge of the box as Scott Davidson was about to shoot, the loose ball fell to Craig Cormack , but Jack Henry stretched in to knock the ball away from the toes of Cormack just as he was about to weave his way into a shooting position.

Half time 0 - 0

Wick got the early breakthrough two minutes after half time following a foul by Paul Macleod on Steven Anderson just to the left of the 18 yard box.  Ross Allan fired the free kick into the centre of the box where it was met by the chest of Marc Macgregor and the ball looped over Rothes keeper Darren McConnachie into the back of the net.

With Wick confidence boosted, the Rothes defence were pressed several times more before Marc Macgregor scored his second goal of the afternoon.  A free flowing move out from the Academy defence culminated in a ball through to Macgegor who wasted no time in smashing it past keeper McConnachie.

Six minutes later Macgregor completed his hat trick - a ball played in from the right, controlled by Macgregor and once again the Rothes keeper was unable to stop the Wick man's shot.

End to end play once again ensued - Steven Anderson making runs down both the left and right and Rothes keeper McConnachie being called more and more into play - and Rothes good passing play taking them up to the edge of the penalty area where the Wick defence were standing firm.

 Finally, a break down the right from Rothes Jamie Wilson took him to the edge of the 6 yard box and Wick keeper McCarthy had to get down quickly to push away Wilson's shot for a corner.  The resulting corner was met at the back post with a powerful header by Bruce Milne.  Wick keeper Sean McCarthy stopped the ball but not before it was deemed to have crossed the line. No goal line technology in place in the Highland League but the lack of protest by the Wick players (and a look at the photographs later) looks to confirm the Assistant Referees decision.

The Rothes comeback was cut short 5 minutes later when Gordon McNab latched on to a loose ball and fired the ball past the Rothes keeper from just in front of the penalty spot.

Wick's final goal of the afternoon came from a superbly placed free kick from Ross Allan.  A battling run by substitute Korbyn Cameron was ended when his foot was stood on by Rothes Bruce Milne.  Allan stepped up to take the free kick, his shot curling well out of the reach of the flying Darren McConnachie and into the top right hand corner of the goal.

All in all a great game of football .

Academy started this one like they meant business - and the early breakthrough could have been their's as early as the  3rd minute when a Steven Anderson run and shot from the corner of the 18 yard box had the Formartine keeper Ewen Macdonald beaten, but the ball crashed off the cross bar and was cleared to safety. It was Formartine though that took the early lead on 8 minutes when a cross from the left found Graeme Rodger unmarked in front of Academy keeper Sean McCarthy and he calmly slotted the ball into the left corner of the net.

Academy continued to press and a powerful driving run by Steven Anderson was only ended on the edge of the penalty box when Scott Ferris clipped the Wick man's heels. Richard Macadie took the free kick but sent it high over the bar.

Wick were level by the 20th minute, after Mark Macgregor's drive through the penalty area was halted when he was bundled over by a combination of Jevan Anderson and Jamie Michie. Referee Dan McFarlane had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and Richard Macadie coolly dispatched his penalty into the left corner of the net.

The teams traded attacks for the rest of the first half with both keepers called into action - Sean McCarthy at full stretch to pluck an Archie Macphee cross out of the air while Formartine keeper Ewen Macdonald had to punch the ball clear following a free kick whipped into the box by Wick's Gary Manson.

Formartine took the lead two minutes before the break when a crunching tackle from Wick's Andrew Hardwick gave the visitors a free kick 20 yards out, directly in front of goal. Scott Barbour curled his free kick over the Wick wall and although Sean McCarthy, at full stretch, managed to get a hand to the ball the shot had enough power to continue to the back of the net.

The second half continued much as the first with the teams swapping attacks - but it was Wick who found the net courtesy of another Richard Macadie penalty in the 74th minute. Referee Dan MacFarlane pointing to the spot after a Marc Macgregor shot was stopped by the outstretched arm of Formartine captain Stuart Anderson. Once again Macadie slotted the ball past the Formartine keeper to level the scores.

A bit of indiscipline crept into the Formartine game and, after a deliberate handball while on the ground, Jamie Michie picked up his second yellow card of the game.

Wick took advantage of the extra man and three minutes later a quick one two between Gary Manson and Gordon McNab found Manson in pace just inside the left corner of the 18 yard box - and his left foot shot rocketed past Ewen Macdonald in the Formartine goal to give the home side all three points.

An entertaining match was  played out in the sunshine at Harmsworth Park on Saturday afternoon.

Lossie got the match underway with the first attack of the afternoon after 2 minutes  but the final shot was deflected and went straight thru to Wick keeper Sean McCarthy.

Another attack by Lossie's Ryan Farquhar after 6 minutes as he drove into 18 yard box but a sliding Danny Mackay managed to block his shot and the ball went out for corner.

Academy made their first breakthrough after 7 minutes  - a cross in from the right found Steven Anderson at the left post in front of defender Ross Duncan, and Anderson's header back across the keeper hit the back of the net

Into the 11th minute and Academy were back on the attack, a ball in from the left looked to have fallen to Gordon McNab but Anthony Ross recovered well for Lossiemouth and he managed to get a toe to the ball as McNab was about to pull the trigger.

Lossiemouth's relief was short lived as a minute later, after good work by Marc Macgregor to hold the ball up in the penalty box, the ball broke to Steven Anderson who's shot from the 18 yard line flew past keeper Stewart Black and into the bottom right corner of the net.

Lossiemouth regrouped almost immediately and an attack by Ross Archibald down the right wing needed Danny Mackay at full stretch to clear the ball for a corner.

Twenty minutes and Wick's first substitution of the afternoon, when Grant Steven pulled up and was replaced by Brandon Sinclair.

The fans at Harmsworth Park were being treated to good attacking football by both teams and it was Lossie's turn to ramp up the pressure after 25 minutes when Kelvin Mackenzie drove forward and laid the ball off to Ross Archibald, but his rasping shot was met by the outstretched hand of Wick keeper Sean McCarthy as the ball was inches from crossing the line.

Next was a penalty claim for Wick as the ball appeared to bounce off the hand of Ian Macrae just inside the 6 yard box. Referee Ben Dempster waived away the appeals of the Academy players.

Straight back up the pitch for Lossiemouth and Ross Archibald unleashed another shot, only to be thwarted once again by a diving save to the right by Wick keeper McCarthy.  Lossie were first to the loose ball and it was returned to the middle of the box where a goal mouth scramble ensued.  Wick eventually cleared the ball with a combination of a point blank Sean McCarthy block and a Danny Mackay header from a close range shot from Lossie's Kelvin Mackenzie.

Lossiemouth didn't let up and just after the half hour mark Ross Archibald broke to the bye-line, pulled the ball back to Liam Archibald, only for his low shot to be blocked on the goal line by the inspired McCarthy, and cleared by Wick defender Andrew Hardwick.

Having soaked up the Lossiemouth pressure, Academy moved forward with some crisp passing play between Gordon McNab and Richard Macadie.  Macadie fed the ball through to Steven Anderson on the left,  Anderson , on a hat-trick, saw his shot beat keeper Stewart Black but rebound  off the far post and straight back to himself  - this time Anderson squared the ball across the goal for the waiting Marc Macgregor to tap in for Academy's third goal.

Wick pressed home their advantage and two minutes later Gordon McNab found himself in space at the corner of the 18 yard box, but his shot was well saved as Stewart Black dived to his left.

With a minute to half time Steven Anderson made another run down the left, crossed the ball to Gordon McNab who lashed the ball past the Lossie keeper at his near post.

Half time Wick 4 v Lossiemouth 0

Although half time score probably flattered Wick a little they were well deserving of their four goals and Lossiemouth must have been left scratching their heads as to how they still were not in this match and maybe even on level terms.

Second Half

Substitutions at half time:  Wick - Ross Allan off  Sam Mackay on  Lossiemouth - Ross Duncan off  Logan Johnstone on

The second half started off much as the first had ended with both sides trading attacking moves but as the match wore on Wick began to dominate play.

Steven Anderson was finding more space down the left and went on a strong run down the wing - but was tracked all the way by Anthony Ross who forced the Wick man to run out of space and the ball crossed the line for a goal kick.

On 50 minutes Richard Macadie made space for himself but his shot just crept over the crossbar with the Lossie keeper at full stretch. This was followed by some sharp passing between Gordon McNab and Marc Macgregor, but McNab's cross into the box was cut out by the Lossiemouth defence.  Academy were now attacking down both flanks and had Sam Mackay surging through the middle of the field but the Lossiemouth defense was standing firm, rebuffing every Wick attack.

Substitutions for Lossie 62 mins  Ross Archibald off Scott Dunn on   and 65 mins - Aaron Mclean off Murray Bushall on

Lossie's best chance of the second half came in the 75th minute when a cross in from the left  found no 24 unmarked in the middle of the 6 yard box but he scuffed what looked like a simple tap in wide of the left post.

76th minute substitution for Wick:  Danny Mackay off   Aidan Reid on

The Lossie keeper was called into action again in the 77th minute when a sweeping move across the pitch ended with a Steven Anderson volley, forcing a diving save from Stewart Black.

Steven Anderson completed his hat-trick with ten minutes to go - a drive through midfield by Sam Mackay  - pass to Steven Anderson - back to Sam Mackay - back to Steven Anderson and a low drive that beat the oncoming Stewart Black and the ball hit the back of the net.

Sam Mackay rounded off the scoring for Wick in the 86th minute courtesy of a Gary Manson shot from the left hand side of the penalty box that crashed off the bottom of the far post and rebounded into his path. Mackay teed himself up and his shot flew past Stewart Black.  Wick 6 Lossiemouth 0

Reporter Ken Wood

Wick Academy are still seeking a first win of the season after surrendering a two goal lead and returning empty-handed from Station Park on Wednesday night. Goals from Richard Macadie and recent signing, Gordon McNab just after the half hour looked to have given the Scorries control of the game but Nairn striker Dylan MacKenzie soon reduced the deficit and went on to complete a hat-trick with goals early and late in the second half.

Eventually yellow cards counted against Academy who finished the game with nine players. Jack Henry committed only three fouls in the game and yet he got two yellow cards.

So Academy's frustration at failing to claim a point or three was compounded by double yellow cards for Michael Steven and Henry.

Central defender Grant Steven was missing with a recurrence of a ham-string problem while Sam Mackay was ruled out by work commitments.

Academy survived an early scare when in the third minute a close range header from Ryan MacDonald bounced down off the bar. The visitors soon recovered and Gary Manson drove a 30 yard free kick just wide of the post and McNab saw his 8 yard header headed off the line.

In the 30th minute, Ross Allan was tripped in the Nairn box after a surging run had taken him past two defenders. Macadie netted a text book penalty kick, driving the ball low into the corner of the net with keeper Ryan MacLeod diving the wrong way.

Within three minutes Wick doubled their lead. Steven Anderson played a one-two with Macadie on the right and MacLeod could only push his shot round the post. Allan's corner was headed away but quickly returned to the goalmouth by Jack Halliday and McNab drilled the ball into the net from 10 yards.

Three minutes later MacKenzie ran through the middle and steered the ball past the advancing Sean McCarthy to make it 2-1.

Two minutes into the second half Steven stood up to Kenny McKenzie as the Nairn attacker tried to go past him at the side of the box. Referee Alan Proctor judged it a foul and Steven, already booked in the first half, was given his marching orders.

The ten men almost scored a third goal when Allan delivered a free kick and Andrew Hardwick's glancing header dropped just wide.

In 52 minutes the home side were level after Jordan Macrae's low cross from the Nairn left was swept into the net by MacKenzie.

It gave Nairn a boost to get their equaliser but even after that Academy created more chances than the home team and defended well to restrict them to long range efforts.

Academy forced a series of corners but were caught out by a quick counter-attack in the 80th minute. Keeper MacLeod sent a long clearance to Macrae who slipped it to MacKenzie for the Nairn striker to net the winner and complete his hat-trick.

Moments later Wick were reduced to nine men when Henry was booked for a sliding tackle near the half way line.

Substitute Marc MacGregor broke through but delayed his shot and had to settle for a corner from which Anderson's glancing header flashed wide.

Academy started this one off with a positive approach and within 3 minutes had a Danny Mackay shot from a Sam Mackay cross blocked by a Turriff defence. Turriff replied immediately with a run down the left by Allen Mackenzie but his cross fell safely into hands of Wick keeper Sean McCarthy.

In the 9th minute Gordon McNab made space for himself on the left edge of the 6 yard box and his shot had Turriff's Kevin Main diving to his right to smother ball.  Turriff moved into the ascendency towards the end of the first quarter and a long pass found Louis Myers on the left wing - he drove to the by-line, his cutback found the gap between Wick keeper Sean McCarthy and defender Danny Mackay but David Booth at the far post could not make contact for the visitors.

The Academy defence was coming under increasing pressure and when another attack down the Turriff left allowed a shot from the edge of the box by Louis Myers, Grant Steven had to be on hand to  make an all-important block.

The Turriff breakthrough came in the 16th minute - a driving run down the left wing saw Allen Mackenzie get past Brandon Sinclair and his cross was met with a low drive by Scott Miller which beat keeper Sean McCarthy to his right. 1 nil Turriff.

Academy regrouped and pressed forward - after 25 minutes a flurry of action in the Turriff penalty area saw Darren Wood block a Steven Anderson shot from 6 yards, Cammy Bowden clear the ball to the edge of the 18 yard box, only for Richard Macadie to return ball straight back in, but Wick could not find the final touch and the ball was eventually collected by Kevin Main.

Another chance for Wick on the half hour but a header at back post by Danny Mackay flew over the bar.

On the half hour Jack Halliday was caught by a trailing elbow from Scott Miller and play was brought to a halt for a few minutes.  The resulting Wick free kick came to nothing and Turriff made a break, the ball finding Louis Myers at the edge of 18 yard box, but the onrushing Sean McCarthy did enough to put the Turriff man off his shot.

Gordon Connelly to step down from Managers position Print E-mail
WAFC Latest News

Friday, 25 August 2017
Wick Academy Manager Gordon Connelly has decided to stand down from his managerial duties and tomorrow’s game against Turriff United will be his last at the Harmsworth Park where he will be able to part from the Club with the dignity and gratitude he deserves given the success he’s achieved. Gordon, better known as Goggs explained he can no longer give the time, commitment and dedication that the post merits. Chairman James Innes said ‘It’s the end of an era for our Club and the success Gordon brought the last three seasons will never be forgotten, he’s the only manger I’ve worked with in my now fourth year as Chairman and his successful tenure is set in stone’. Innes added ‘who could forget the afternoon in November 2015 when we finally lifted the elusive first senior silverware and no matter where we move from here, the feeling and feat of winning the first trophy can never be repeated, but in football as in life people move on’. ‘Gordon, his wife Claire and their two girls Amy and Katy, will be sorely missed by everyone connected to Wick Academy FC. We wish him every success in the future and thank him for the time he has spent with us at the Club’. Tichie, Ross and Tom will be taking the team in the interim until a successor is appointed.

Wick exited the NOS Cup after the first round for the second year running -  Academy started brightly with a Richard Macadie shot from outside the 18 yard box after 6 minutes that flew just over the bar then, with 20 minutes in, Mark Macgregor slipped a thru pass to Steven Anderson on the edge of the box but his shot went wide of the post.  Despite a few heavy tackles earlier in the game referee Billy Baxter produced his first yellow card of the night when Danny Mackay was adjudged to have gone through Invergordon's Michael Mackenzie in an attempt to reach the ball.

On 26 minutes Invergordon's Kyle Maclean found space on the edge of the 6 yard box and unleashed a shot towards the Wick goal which whistled past the outside of Sean McCarthy's post. Much of the rest of the first half was battled out in midfield with Sam Mackay ‘s couple of deflected shots on the Invergordon goal the highlights for Wick and two yellow cards picked up by Ryan Maclean and Kyle Maclean the lowlights for Invergordon.

Academy soaked up some early Invergordon pressure in the second half and then slowly started to dominate. The two best chances of a goal for Wick came after 58 minutes when the ball fell to Grant Steven on the edge of the 6 yard box but at full stretch he was unable to get his toe to the ball to poke it past Invergordon keeper John Allan and, five minutes later, when Steven Anderson picked up the ball on the right wing cut inside and unleashed a shot that had John Allan scrambling to push away for a corner.

Despite a  flurry of pressure in the last 15 minutes  Academy could not find the final touch and at Billy Baxter's final whistle both teams prepared for the penalty shoot out.

The first four spot-kicks from each side were all converted before Jack Henry's fifth effort for Wick was saved by John Allan.

This left Michael Mackenzie with the chance to win it and his low shot went underneath the diving Sean McCarthy to set up a quarter final tie against Golspie

Wick Academy and Clach played out a nil nil draw at Grant Street Park. Goalmouth action was in short supply  but a powerful shot by Gary Manson after 20 minutes brought out a good save from Clach keeper Douglas Maclennan.  A corner from Richard Macadie after 35 minutes caused a bit of mayhem in the Clach defense  and a deflection off  a defender  looked goalbound for Wick but was cleared off the line by John MacAskill.  Challenges became a little more meaty in the second half resulting in a flurry of bookings for both sides after the 70th minute mark with Wick's Michael Steven picking up two yellows in the space of 4 minutes which left him heading to the dressing room a few minutes ahead of the rest of the team.

Match Programme Annnouncement

The power of the published press has been under severe challenges since the creation of the love it or hate it internet, with all the digital, online and virtual space that people go to these days to access everything from daily news, to booking holidays ontheir smart phones and laptops etc. The advent of Twitter, Facebook and websites has changed beyond parallel the speed of which news can be announced and shared and after many years of a paper programme being printed, we have had to make the hard decision of how much time we spend on duties to benefit the Club as a whole, and more importantly committee volunteers time, work life balance and health.

The match day programme has a certain niche interest and lots of Highland League Clubs either don't do one or provide an online edition. John Briskham, who puts literally hundreds of hours a year in behind the scenes doing our Club Licencing Audit, Child Protection and Welfare documentation, to name a few of his thankless but essential tasks, also keeps fans abreast with Twitter and Club Website updates. Ultimately we felt that something had to give and his tireless involvement with every aspect of the programme was becoming more and more time consuming and deserved be put to better use in the regulation heavy and online era we live in.  Last season a monthly programme was suggested as an alternative which would still satisfy the home and away fans who still desired a paper memento of their visit to Harmsworth Park and would mean there was no ‘deadline' to meet every other weekend in an already hectic working week. The traditionalist and passionate match day programme stalwart at the helm, Ken Wood, was not in favour of that idea and with respect to the massive input he made to the programme we agreed to continue as per, until we ultimately had to make the full committee decision to only do match day programmes on special days such as Scottish Cup or derby games.

Academy welcomed defending champions Buckie Thistle to Harmsworth Park today and the Jags ran our comprehensive 5-1 winners. Michael Steven conceded a penalty on the 29th minute which Sam Urquhart confidently dispatched. Steven Ross doubled the lead before a freak own goal from Grant Steven, heading into his own net from some distance as McCarthy came to gather, more-or-less put the game to bed. Steven Ross made it four from a well taken free-kick. Steven Anderson pulled one back from the penalty spot but the Jags went nap a minute later through substitute Stuart Taylor.

Academy took the lead through Sam Mackay after 17 minutes and managed to hold that until Matthew Wallace equalised with 11 minutes of normal time left. Chris Blackhall and Robert Scott then scored in the 5th and 7th minutes of injury time to earn Deveronvale all three points.

Academy started the game well and had the first half-sniff at goal after 15 minutes but Steven Anderson saw his 20 yard effort sail over the cross-bar.

2 minutes later Academy opened the scoring. Marc MacGregor picked out Sam Mackay with a great pass and Mackay riffled home with a 20 yard shot passed keeper Errol Watson.

0 - 1

Vale won a free kick and Shaun Carrol was unlucky not to score as his curing effort smacked off the right-hand post.

2 minutes later and from another free-kick Michael Dunn had a header at the near-post which was just wide of target.

Half Time - Deveronvale 0 - Wick Academy 1

10 minutes after the re-start Mackay came close to his second but his rasping drive was tipped over the cross-bar by Watson.

Grant Steven had a shot that was just wide of the post before Academy had a stone-wall shout for a penalty kick. Steven Anderson chased a ball into the box and keeper Watson came out to claim it but smacked into Anderson hitting him in the chest with his knee, both falling to the ground in a heap. Referee Liam Duncan however waved away the cries for the penalty.

Academy notched up their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw against visitors Forres Mechanics. A dipping shot from Ryan Stuart after only 5 minutes slid in under the outstretched hand of Danny McCarthy to give Forres an early lead. Richard Macadie squared the scores however 12 minutes later as he converted from a fairly tight angle passed keeper Stuart Knight.

The visitors opened the scoring in their first real attack of the game. A long ball down-field found Ryan Stuart who found some space and his low driving 20 yard shot dipped under the outstretched hand of Danny McCarthy and crept in at the bottom of the left hand post.

0 - 1

Academy settled in and got their passing game going and levelled 12 minutes later. Jack Halliday delivered onto the box to the feet of Richard Macadie. Keeper Stuart Knight came out of his goal to try to close him down but Macadie went around him and converted from a tight angle via a small nick off a defender.

1 - 1

Academy had the better of the remainder of the half but lacked the cutting edge to create another clear chance.

Academy lost their opening game of the campaign with a 3-1 defeat away at Fraserburgh. Davie Allan and Alan Farquhar look set to miss another chunk of the season with injuries picked up last year, and James Pickles was suspended for this one. New signings Alasdair Stark, Jack Halliday and Aidan Wilson all made the opening line-up.

Academy started the game well and in 19 minutes Steven Anderson drove forward was taken down on the box by Bryan Hay. Referee Graham Beaton pointed to the spot. Richard Macadie stepped forward and made no mistake in beating keeper Peter Tait.

0 - 1

Fraserburgh took a throw-in on the right to Willie West who was about 25 yards from goal. He turned and shot but his effort went high over the bar.

Fraserburgh were having a good spell and a short free-kick was played to Ryan Cowie just inside the Academy half. He slid the ball up the left wing to Gary Harris who crossed to the edge of the box for Paul Campbell but he also fired over the bar.

Fraserburgh pushed for the equalizer, Gary Harris powered up the right wing and crossed into the back post to Campbell. He headed back across goal but his effort was cleared off the line by Michael Steven.

The home side forced two quick corners. Sean McCarthy made a great save from Willie West header. The next one lead to a scramble in the Academy box which fell to Campbell. He couldn't make a clean contact on the ball and McCarthy gathered comfortably.

Double Donation From Wick Academy FC Premier Club Winner

Two local organisations are to benefit from a recent Wick Academy Premier Club winner.

James Fleming who used to own Blingery Farm, Stirkoke was delighted with the good news that he'd won one of the twice yearly drawn £1000 prizes. On hearing the good news from Wick Academy Chairman James Innes by phone at his now Cirencester home, he immediately pondered which local organisations might be worthy recipients of his good fortune. It wasn't too long before he decided on The Flow Country River Trust and Wick Academy FC, in particular to go towards the volunteer groundsmen equipment and consumables.

John Mackay, Treasurer of the Flow Country River Trust was invited to the boardroom for the afternoon of the Rothes game and is seen pictured with Jim McLachlan (left), WAFC Premier Club Administrator receiving the cheque for £500. The Trust of which Mr Fleming is Chairman has a  territory that stretches from Tongue in the West, down to Berriedale in the South and East for the benefit of all species of freshwater fish. More information can be found on their website www.fcrt.org

Presentation

James Innes said " It was very generous of Mr Fleming to make the donations to two worthwhile causes and ours will be put to very good use here at Harmsworth Park in the off season. We will shortly be starting the intensive summer maintenance of the pitch and enclosures and we will be able to splash out on new paint brushes and rollers this year, along with perhaps a new petrol strimmer to replace our temperamental second hand one. We have already been prepping the walls for painting once the weather improves, so James's kind donation could not have come at a better time"   

The Wick Academy Premier Club is a weekly subscription draw of £50 & £100 prizes with two £1000 prizes a year. Forms can be downloaded from the Wick Academy FC website or available from any committee member.

Match Day Secretary Position Available

Due to a work relocation we have a position of match day and minute Secretary available at Wick Academy FC.

The role would attract a committee position and require the person to attend on most match days, both home and away.

As part of a restructure the Secretaries role has been split into two different responsibilities and therefor the Club Secretary would be on hand to offer advice and assistance when required.

Good computer and correspondence skills are needed, as dialogue with other Clubs is required on a weekly basis and the WAFC team Manager and Club Chairman.

As with all committee roles this is a non-remuneration position.

Please email in the first instance to register an interest.

Five Players Pen Contract Extensions

Wick Academy are delighted to announce that five players; Sean McCarthy, Sam Mackay, Davie Allan, Danny Mackay and Steven Anderson, have all signed long term contract extensions with the club.

Academy chairman James Innes said: "We've signed extension deals with Sean McCarthy, midfield play-maker Sam Mackay, Davie Allan, Ex Brora Rangers and league title medal winner Danny Mackay and forward Steven Anderson, who along with Sam was in Dave Edwards' Highland League 2016 team of the year squad.

"This will be Sam's second extension since he joined the club in September 2009, his previous one being a five year deal back in December 2012 and it shows his commitment to the club. Sean McCarthy has also extended and apart from being an instrumental team member, we are sure he will progress another level as he matures and develops.

"Davie Allan has proved to be a match-winner on numerous occasions and must be the one of the fastest players in the Highland League, his pace on the wings and through the middle is phenomenal.

"Steven Anderson has been a fans' favourite since we signed him from Lybster FC in 2014, he is our joint top goal scorer so far this term, level with Sam on 15 strikes and well on the way to surpassing the 20 goals he scored for us last season.

"Right back Danny Mackay has extended his contract until the end of the 2019/20 season and given that level of commitment it looks like we will see him at Harmsworth Park for many a year to come."

The fact that the competition for it is being played for at the end of the season doesn't matter to us, as it's something we never tire of seeing in the boardroom! With it and the Highland League Cup still to play for, plus possibly a chance to play in the Irn-bru cup depending on our final league position, Gordon, Tichie and Ross still have a lot to gee the boys up for the remainder of this campaign.

The U17s excelled themselves and won their league with a perfect 'clean sweep' record of played 16 won 16. Unfortunately the play-off final didn't go our way against the East division winners Banks o Dee, but James Robertson and Mark McKenzie's team can hold their heads high to a resounding achievement and with the Caithness United 13s and Academy 15s providing a yearly conveyor belt of talent coming through the youth system, we have great hopes for the future. The youth coaches at all levels are doing a great job for which we are very grateful.

As ever there have been sad times at the club this year and the passing of supporters, ex players and committee is always felt by the club.

This year we lost two very hard working serving committee members, George Ross and Austin MacNiven. George was a 'weel kent face' and did a near sentry duty at the top gate with a quip or constructive parking advice for many a fan, both ours and visiting ones!

Austin may not have been so well known to the supporters at the club at present, but he was instrumental in securing Wick Academy's place in the Highland League back in 1994, utilising the respect he had earned as our North of Scotland representative and the cordial manner in which he conducted himself at meetings to his peers. I attended his funeral in Ardersier along with Clair Harper, ex Chairman Alistair Gunn and our present North of Scotland representative David Taylor. Hearing how fondly the minister relayed Austin's love for our Club in his eulogy made the journey even more worthwhile.

My 3 year tenure as Chairman ends in May where I can choose to stand for re-election at the AGM or not. I'm happy with the way the Club has moved the last two and a half years and the proof of the pudding is that a manager has never achieved so much and the Treasurer has never been happier! At present, I'm happy to extend my position at Harmsworth Park, but I've decided that should anyone wish my role, they are more than welcome to stand for election unopposed by me, as I have no desire to compete for a role that takes 100s of hours of my time and lots of other efforts besides. In the event that a new Chairman was elected for the post, I would hope to still be welcome to serve on the committee.

The annual 'get it off my chest' topic last year was the minority that choose to use social media as a platform to vent slur at a hard working volunteer committee who due to the time we give up are among the clubs biggest fans, with the best interests, knowledge and bigger picture of what's best for WAFC.

This year it's training facilities, or more accurately, the lack of training facilities. The Wick High School all weather pitch seems to be a pawn in a secret argument between Highland Council, Wick High School and the building contractors which has led to a locked gate at the all weather now for nearly 3 months. Despite de-bunking the reasons given why no one including us, Caithness Rugby Club, Caithness United and East End are forbidden to use the park we still find ourselves with no winter training facilities in Wick. There's government departments and quangos spending hundreds of thousands a year on campaigns to encourage us to walk our kids to school, not give them too much sugar on their breakfasts and even how to hide vegetables in their meals, yet in Wick they can't train or get a game of football or rugby on the only surface suitable. 5 a day is yet another campaign, but I'd say this is taking the pea! I've never encountered bureaucratic cack-handedness quite like it.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who volunteers at the club, of which there must be roughly 40, the sponsors and supporters who help the club out financially and by coming to watch the team play and last but not least to the management, staff and players who all contribute to the performances on the park which is what we are all here for ultimately.

I wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2017 on behalf of everyone at Wick Academy FC.

C'mon è Scorries!

James

Stagecoach Sponsor New Academy Dugouts

Wick Academy are delighted that Stagecoach have agreed to be our dugout sponsor for the next year.

Assistant Operations Manager for Caithness John Gunn says "Stagecoach in Caithness are delighted to sponsor Wick Academy's new dugouts and would like to wish Academy all the very best for the season ahead."

James Innes said "The old dugouts had attracted a bit of cult status, but for the wrong reasons, the one long hard bench although in perfect condition wasn't the most comfortable and with more subs available to select we felt an upgrade was overdue. Thankfully the generosity of Stagecoach could not have arrived at a better time and I'd like to thank them and particularly John Gunn for facilitating the deal. Hopefully both our team and our visitors are as comfortable as John's passengers in their new seats!"

John and his son Bruin are pictured beside the new dugouts with Wick Academy Chairman James Innes and Vice Chairman Ewan MacKenzie.

New Away Strip To Be Launched At Vale Game Print E-mail
WAFC Other News
Written by John Briskham   
Thursday, 29 September 2016

In the summer Wick Academy FC launched a competition and wrote to each primary school in Caithness offering every child the opportunity to design our new away strip. The only constraint was that the strip had to contain the colours of the newly launched Caithness flag, with amber and blue taking priority over the black of the home kit.

We were overwhelmed with the response receiving over 300 entries. The ideas the children came up with were fantastic and several of the designs caught our attention and gave us the inspiration required to be able to work with our kit supplier, EV2 Sportswear, to come up with a bespoke design.

We picked two competition winners, Isaac Seddon, P3 from Noss Primary for the jersey, and Matthew Laird, P5 from Mount Pleasant Primary for the shorts and socks. Both will receive an away jersey with the new design, and will be invited to be mascots for the launch game.

The new kit will be launched by Anne Dunnett , Lord Lieutenant of Caithness, who will be in attendance as a piper leads the team out at our home game against Deveronvale on Saturday the 1st October.  The new away top will be available for sale at the Harmsworth Park that day, and thereafter along with our other Wick Academy merchandise from Driftwood in Wick and Thurso, who are our new merchandising outlet following the retirement of Stewart Gunn.

Academy Chairman James Innes said ‘we were literally astounded by the response and the decision was incredibly hard, some of the entries must have taken hours to do and we'd like to thank each and every child who took the time and effort to submit their design' James added, ‘It affirmed our belief that Wick Academy are a county wide supported team, and to promote this we have incorporated the Caithness Flag in to the nape of the top' said James.  James went on to express the Clubs thanks to John Gunn & Co.  ‘Stewart Gunn was our main merchandising outlet for many years and we would like to thank him for everything he did for us, not only the merchandise sales but also as ticket seller for our four cup finals, and also our weekly Scorrie Scoop lottery ticket. We wish him all the very best for a long and happy retirement'.

Some of the competition entries are pictured below.Competition Returns

Harmsworth Park Annual Ground Maintenance Print E-mail
WAFC Other News
Written by John Briskham   
Saturday, 14 May 2016

Harmsworth Park is currently having its annual pre-season make-over. As well as maintenance on the drains, and spreading of fertiliser and weed killer several other pieces of work have also been undertaken this year.

Over 100 tons of sand has been spread and the park has been over-seeded with 60Kg of grass seed.

In an attempt to break the pan of compacted soil beneath the surface and help with the drainage the club has also brought in a specialist contractor to carry out a deep aeration treatment.

A machine is used to hydraulically hammer a probe about 1½" in diameter into the soil to a depth of about a meter. It then releases a blast of compressed air to fracture and fissure the soil. On the tail end of the air blast, dried milled seaweed is injected under pressure which sticks to the walls of the fractures and over a period of time this swells and contracts with the moisture content in the soil.

When the probe is removed, the machine moves forward and the process is repeated using two metre centre spacings on a staggered grid pattern. The probe holes are then backfilled with aggregate to provide a semi long-term aeration/ventilation shaft allowing air and water to percolate into the fissures. The aim in breaking the compacted ground pan is that surface water will be able to reach one-metre fairly quickly before percolating deeper.

The club has also purchased a verti-drain soil reliever machine which will be used frequently on the park, spiking it providing aeration and again hopefully improve drainage.

Pictured is the machine used to carry out the deep aeration treatment

Ross sets off on epic charity challenge

19-year-old Ross Mackay from Lybster has set himself an epic challenge of visiting 72 football stadiums across Scotland in the space of just 27 hours to raise to raise thousands of pounds for charities which have helped him cope with diabetes for the last 10 years, namely Diabetes UK and Archie Highland.

Ever since Ross was a child he has suffered from type one diabetes and has had to make regular trips to hospital in Inverness to help him cope with the condition.

Ross started his trip this morning at Harmsworth Park and travelling south he will visit every Highland League, Lowland League and SPFL ground in the country along with BT Murrayfield Stadium. His final destination will be Stair Park, home of Stranraer FC, who play in SPFL League One.

Please show your support for Ross by making a donation. There are several ways you can donate to the challenge by visiting;

Manager Connelly Extends Academy Contract

Gordon_Connelly_webGordon Connelly has signed a new deal at Wick Academy FC which keeps him at the Club to the end of the 2017-18 season.

Academy Chairman James Innes said "We are delighted to have secured Gordon's services for at least the next two seasons. He delivered along with his management team and players, the Clubs first ever senior silverware and that alone I think is reason enough to ask him to stay in the dugout longer" said James. "Gordon and I have a good working relationship. We have both learnt things from one another about how we can successfully combine the business element behind the scenes, and the actual football on the field, it's a good mix".

"Gordon I'm sure has spiked interest from other Clubs, who no doubt could offer more attractive terms than we can, but the support he has from within the Club, and the loyal Scorrie fans who watch us week in week out cannot be priced. We are a Club moving forward and I'm glad to say Gordon wants to be part of that".

Chairman's New Year Message

James Innes sizedLike every year that passes there are highs and lows, and 2015 was no exception, with the slight difference that last year's high.......was very high!

Above all else the biggest moment in Wick Academy's 123 year history happened on the 21st November 2015 at Dudgeon Park, Brora when Gordon Connelly led his team to lift The North of Scotland Football Association Cup, our first ever piece of senior silverware, and just reward for all the managers, players, backroom staff, supporters, volunteers and committee who have been involved with the Club over the years. Gordon and I are extremely proud of what the team achieved that day, and both of us saw what it meant to people at the Club, who after decades of endeavour had tears in their eyes. A very humble moment which we were both very proud to be part of.

Our Scottish Cup run also hit the headlines! Not only did we equal our best ever run by getting to a 3rd round replay, we also set a new Club record on the same game being postponed 4 times due to a waterlogged pitch, plus a frozen one thrown in for good measure! Like most things though, if you look at the facts, the headlines don't really give a true reflection. We had one of the wettest years in decades, and we've only had one Highland League game postponed this season so far, and for the first time in years we had 3 games in December at Harmsworth Park. The ground staff and committee literally put 100s of hours a year into the pitch, and none other than Press and Journal reporter Dave Edwards himself said, this year is the best he's ever seen The Harmsworth Park surface. The slope is another job!

As ever, the lows of the year are the passing away of friends of the Club, and last year was no exception. Supporters, past backroom staff and Committee members alike all saw their last Scorries match unfortunately, but no one's death was so untimely as our under 17s coach Garry Macleod who was in his 2nd season as manager after spending many more years in the youth set up at Caithness United. Garry is missed by all who knew him.

We have maintained our SFA Club license this year once again and if ever there was behind the scenes work that needs done that doesn't perhaps get the recognition it deserves, it's this. Quite simply without the work John Briskham puts in compiling and organising the paperwork, ensuring practical things are done so that the boxes can be ticked for the audit, the Club would struggle to exist in the ever developing world of compliance and certificates.

Our 15 and 17s youth teams which heavily depend on the SFA license and funding are doing particularly well this year, with the 17s unbeaten this season as I write, with James Robertson as manager guiding the hopefuls of tomorrow through the youth system. The 15s which play under the Caithness United banner are again doing well, and already there are players we see that will one day play for the 1st team. Thanks to all involved.

Last but not least I must thank my committee of which unless you've ever been on one will not realise how hard we all must work to keep the club going. The old saying of a committee being '12 men who can't make their mind up, led by one man who can't make a decision' obviously hasn't been at the Wick Academy boardroom table!

It's worth mentioning in the era of social media that your committee who seem to cope in life out with the boardroom, don't all of a sudden become incapable of doing what's best within it. We sit fortnightly, or as required for roughly 1 hour 30 mins with all the facts in front of us, and are elected by the members to do the best for the Club. People who spend 1 min 30 seconds writing criticism on social media are a fact of modern day life, but thankfully the silent majority appreciate the Club is run professionally, business-like, properly and with integrity.

As I enter the second half of my 3 year tenure as Chairman, I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2016, and if the highs of 2015 can be repeated this year it would be nothing short of fantastic!

C'mon 'e Scorries!

James

Grant Campbell Transferred to Cove Rangers

Grant_Campbell

Wick Academy would like to announce the transfer of Grant Campbell to Cove Rangers FC.

Wick Chairman James Innes said "Grant will be massive boots to fill, and everyone at the Club is as disappointed he's leaving as we were glad he came here 18 months ago, with the desire to help his home town club lift our first senior silverware" said James.

"Grant is a gritty footballer on the park, and a gentleman footballer off it, simple as that. It's been a pleasure to have him at the Club, but unfortunately for us his work and family commitments have made his unstinting travelling and time away from his home in Cove just too much"

"He leaves the Club on the absolute finest of terms, and we thank him for his service, and wish him the genuine best both on and off the park. The door at Harmsworth Park will always be open for him to return. Cove Rangers FC and their officials have been highly professional and acted with the decorum Grant deserved throughout the deal" added James.

Message of thanks from Chairman James Innes

Wow! What a day for Wick Academy FC and everyone involved with the Club. We've finally lifted that elusive silverware that has been just beyond our reach on three previous Cup Final appearances. The expressions of euphoria, relief and even the odd tear in the eye for so many on Saturday afternoon had to be seen to be believed, and the huge turnout of Scorrie supporters to Dudgeon Park added to the most momentous day in the Clubs history to date. 

It could be argued we had the most difficult route to the final, knocking out the holders Brora Rangers in the first round, followed by tough games away to Clach and then at home to a young Inverness Caley Thistle side, before leaving Dudgeon Park victorious against Nairn County who have been to seven finals in ten years. 

It is a just reward for everyone connected with Wick Academy, and to name anyone in particular would be an injustice to those not mentioned. The Clubs success is a triangle that consists of three parts. Supporters and Sponsors, Players and Management and Committee and Volunteers. Without any one of those three elements, the Club wouldn't have won the trophy on Saturday, so please, everyone involved with the Club, give yourselves a massive pat on the back!

Everyone at the Club strives to improve it, and there's a feel good factor at Harmsworth Park just now, but no one is resting on their laurels, and we will continue to make changes and decisions for the better of the Club, your Club.

We have a senior cup in our boardroom for the first time, and everyone deserves to feel proud of it. You have all played a part. Thank you. 

C'mon ‘e Scorries!

James Innes

500 Games and Still Counting

Gary Manson took the field wearing the captain's armband last Wednesday night for the Forres Mechanics match and referee David Watt's whistle for the kick off signalled the start of Gary's 500th competitive game for Wick Academy. Substituted half way through the second half, Gary left the field to a standing ovation.

Manson_500_sizedAfter the game team manager Gordon Connelly presented Gary with a bottle of Old Pulteney (see photo). Gary's father, long-serving committee man Dennis Manson was standing just out of camera range ready to ‘take care' of the bottle and its precious contents.

Fast forward six days and Gary was on the bench against Inverness Caley Thistle and came on in the 84th minute for game number 501.

Gary's debut at Harmsworth Park on 5th August 2000 was a memorable one. With caretaker manager Ian Munro in charge for the first time, Academy beat Cove Rangers 1-0. The value of this win became clear as Cove Rangers recovered to win the Highland League championship. Now today we may see Gary-Gaz or Gazza to his team mates- make appearance 502.

Congratulations from everyone at Wick Academy, Gary.

We look forward to seeing you stretch the record game by game and hopefully you'll even get to taste the whisky one day!

Wick Academy Delighted With New Sponsorship Deals

Wick Academy Football Club is delighted to announce that Scotty Youngson of PHD\Barga Ltd has agreed to continue as the Club's main sponsor for another season. As well as the Comm Bar in Thurso Scotty also owns the Central Bar and Hotel, Top Joe's and Caffe Cardosi.

We are also very pleased to announce that Ashley Ann has agreed to a three year sponsorship deal for our home kit front of shorts and shirt sleeves.

In addition to this the other great news is that Old Pulteney will also continue as our back of shirt sponsor.

Art-work for a new home kit has been completed and the plan is that the kit will be launched at our home game against Huntly on the 29th August. The design for the away kit will remain as present for the season ahead. Home replica jerseys will be on sale from Monday the 31st August in child and adult sizes in J. Gunn & Co, Bridge Street Wick.

Scotty Youngson commented "It has been a pleasure these last few years working with Wick Academy and I am delighted to continue as their main sponsor. I am also delighted that Stephen Bremner from Ashley Ann has come on-board, I think that is a fantastic addition for the club. It just goes to show the support that Wick Academy has throughout the county and I wish them all the very best for the forthcoming season ahead".

Stephen Bremner quoted "Ashley Ann are proud and delighted to announce our new partnership with Wick Academy Football Club. The Club share similar goals, (pardon the pun) and ambitions as our business. Hopefully our sponsorship will help the club flourish and win some silverware in the near future. Once again as the owner and director of a successful local business I am proud to support Wick Academy".

Wick Academy Chairman, James Innes said "I'm delighted to welcome Stephen Bremner and his company Ashley Ann to the club as our first ever home kit short and sleeve sponsor. Ashley Ann compliments Wick Academy FC's values perfectly, a success story which has grown from within Caithness against the odds to become a formidable force in our respective fields. Along with our highly supportive main sponsor Scotty Youngson and Pulteney Distillery, we have a fantastic trio of diverse Caithness businesses that the team will be proud to wear on their shirts this season. I can't stress enough how appreciative of all our sponsors the club is".

AJG Parcels North of Scotland Cup First Round 2015

Academy dumped the holders, Brora Rangers, out of the North Cup winning a penalty shoot out 4-2 after an enthralling 1-1 draw in normal time at Dudgeon Park. Michael Steven kept his nerve to net the decisive spot kick after keeper Sean McCarthy had saved two of Brora's efforts. In the game itself Brora took the lead on 25 minutes when Steven Mackay jumped highest in the box to head in a corner from his new ‘boss' Richard Brittain. Both teams created good chances before Davie Allan out-paced the home defence to fire the equaliser past Joe Malin from 15 yards. Wick will now travel to Inverness to meet Clachnacuddin at Grant Street in the quarter final.

Halkirk United won the other north section tie in similar fashion away to Orkney. Michael Bremner put the Anglers ahead after 25 minutes with a powerful volley from the edge of the box, only for the Islanders' Thorfinn Stout to level the scores with a solo effort five minutes before the break. After a goal-less second half Halkirk won the shoot out 4-2, keeper Neal Clark saving 2 Orkney penalties. The Inverness Caledonian Thistle v Halkirk United tie will be staged at Halkirk's Morrison Park as the ICT first team is due to play Partick Thistle in the SPL at home,

In the South Section Rothes beat Fort William 3-2 while Forres Mechanics won 4-2 at Lossiemouth.

Pre-Season Friendlies Roundup

Orkney AFA 0 - Wick Academy 6 - Every year Wick Academy play Orkney for the Ken Green Cup. The venue alternates each year between Orkney and Caithness. This year it was played at the Pickaquoy Centre and Academy ran out 6-0 winners. Gary Weir bagged a hat-trick, Richard Macadie got a brace and Grant Campbell also got on the score sheet. The squad is pictured opposite with the Ken Green cup.

Wick Academy 2 - Clyde 1 - Wick Academy entertained Barry Ferguson's Clyde in a Wednesday night fixture and a battling performance against the League 2 side saw the Scorries run out deserving 2-1 winners

Academy took the lead on 20 minutes when Michael Steven whipped in a cross from the right wing which Weir nodded past John Gibson with a great header.

Four minutes later, Wick were awarded a penalty when James Pickles was hauled down in the box by Chris Mitchell as they competed to reach Michael Steven's free kick. Richard Macadie sent the keeper the wrong way from the spot to double the hosts' lead.

Mitchell almost made amends shortly afterwards when his 30-yard strike forced Sean McCarthy to divert the ball around the post.

Clyde pulled one back just after the half-hour when Mark Roberts played Mitchell's corner into the six-yard box to give Ross Fisher a simple tap-in from close range.

Clyde could have equalised minutes later when Scott McLauchlan darted through the heart of the Academy defence before his powerful shot from 12 yards cannoned back off the post.

The second half exploded into life when David Marsh clattered Sam Mackay with a tough tackle. A melee ensured which resulted in Marsh and Gary Weir picking up bookings from referee Simon Maclean.

In the next attack Davie Allan could have made it 3-1 for Academy when he broke free of the defence to run onto a route one punt from goalkeeper McCarthy but Allan shot straight at Gibson.

Clyde threw everything at Academy in the second half and almost found an equaliser when Scott Ferguson capitalised on Wick indecisiveness in defence, stealing the ball off Grant Steven but his shot hit the post from close range.

Clyde continued to press for an equaliser when Scott Linton's inch-perfect cross found the diving head of Archie Campbell who headed just wide from six yards.

Ten minutes from time, Sean Higgins thought he had restored parity when he smashed home Steven Brisbane's cross from close range but was ruled to be offside. The Academy defence stood strong against the onslaught and deservedly took the scalp of their league 2 opponents.
