Gordon Connelly to step down from Managers position

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 Academy Trial Out New Match Day Team Lines

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.
