Match Report


There are several changes in the Academy starting line-up today with Michael Gray getting his first start between the sticks since returning to the team at the end of September. Grant Steven pulled a hamstring in the pre-match warm-up so he sits this one out.

Clachnacuddin are also forced to make a few changes with this season's top goal scorer Gordie Morrison and Paul Smith both suspended following their red cards against Cove last weekend.

It's a blustery day at Grant Street Park and the game has just kicked off.

Academy have a goal chalked off with 30 minutes played when Weir cut in from the left and fired a screamer into the bottom left hand corner of Dunn's net, but unfortunately he was ruled off-side and the goal didn't stand.

Half time 0 - 0

Academy are on the attack in the early stages of the second half and after 10 minutes Macadie whipped the ball across the face of goal and Weir tore in at the back post but just couldn't reach it to poke it home.

With 11 minutes left to play Clach break the play up on the right and the ball is fed down the right wing before being cut across the 18 yard box by Allan Pollock for Mark Dougal to side-foot into an open goal.

1 - 0

Academy make a change with Weir coming off and Shearer coming on.

Shearer almost scores with his first touch as he fired a 30 yard thunder-bolt on target that is tipped over the cross-bar by keeper Dunn for a corner.

From the corner Shearer gets his head to ball and from 6 yards out sends a powerful header into the net. Not a bad first two touches!!

1 - 1

What a finish to the game as Academy score their second goal in as many minutes. Stevie Cunningham whipped a 30 yard shot off his laces that went over the top of keeper Dunn and dipped under the cross-bar.

1 - 2

Academy hold on and take the 3 points back up the A9. The win puts us up into 12th spot a point above Clach with a game in hand.

Full Time 1 - 2
