Match Report


The Cancans came up to Harmsworth Park in confident mood on September 17th 1994. With 4 straight wins they sat top of the table 2 points ahead of Elgin City. Academy’s first and only point had been from a 1-1 draw with Rothes two weeks earlier. Forres enjoyed a good half hour without scoring and then on 42 minutes Stewart Sutherland fired the ball low into the net to give Academy the lead. With no further scoring during an even second half the 800 strong crowd went crazy at the final whistle to celebrate a historic first win.
