Gordon Connelly to step down from Managers position Print E-mail
Written by Melanie Roger   
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.
