Macrae Signs Academy Loan Deal

ColinMacrae

Wick Academy FC are delighted to announce that we have signed Colin Macrae on a loan deal to the end of this season from Brora Rangers.

Many thanks to Brora in their cooperation in making this happen.

This is Colin’s second spell at the club, having previously been part of the 15/16 and 16/17 squads. His last game played for us was in April 2016.

Academy Tribute to Stewart Sutherland

Wick Academy chairman Pat Miller paid tribute to former midfielder Stewart Sutherland who passed away recently.

Sutherland died suddenly, aged 49, on August 25. His funeral was held at Wick St Fergus Church with the burial at Watten cemetery.

Donations were made at St Fergus Church for the charity Epilepsy Scotland.

He leaves behind wife Janna and son Liam as well as his parents, Ian and Jennifer.

Sutherland spent five years at Wick Academy – including their inaugural season in the Highland League in 1994/95.

On September 17, 1994, the Scorries won their first Highland League match against Forres Mechanics with Sutherland bagging the only goal.

Sutherland went on to make 138 appearances for the club, scoring nine goals. He also represented Caithness against Orkney and his nephew, Shane Sutherland, plays for SPFL side Elgin City.

Miller, who was Stewart’s first manager at Wick Academy, said: “Stewart was very popular in the dressing room. As a lad he was outgoing and funny – the kind of character that every football club dressing room would like to have.

“He was a decent player too. Stewart was a hard-working midfielder.

“He was your ball-winner who would win back possession and would always make runs in support of the attack.

“When I was manager he was emerging from the amateur scene and his strength in the middle of the park was a plus for us.

“Even when he left the club he still kept in touch. All of us at Wick Academy were sad to hear of his death – at such a young age as well.”

A minute’s silence was observed in Sutherland’s memory before Academy’s home match against Turriff United last Saturday.
