Match Report


Deveronvale made the mammoth trip up to Wick for this mid-week fixture and went back down the road with all three points. Both sides had players from their regular starting eleven missing. Sam Mackay was suspended whilst Grant Campbell, Grant Steven, Richard Macadie, Steven Anderson and Gary Manson were all unavailable. Deveronvale's new manager Steve Dolan had seven under 17's in his side.

Academy made a good start to the game. In the 4th minute Ross Allan had a free kick on the right hand edge of the Vale penalty area that he fired just wide of the post.

Four minutes later Academy Jack Trail brought down Alan Hughes on the other side of the penalty area. This time Ross Allan hit the target with a left footed curling attempt that went over the wall and proved too good for keeper Grant Pennet.

1 - 0

Davie Allan was proving to be a hand-full for the Vale back line but on 32 minutes he picked up a knock to his knee and was replaced by Nigel MacKenzie.

The visitors almost equalised just before half-time. Sean Keith drove a shot across goal from a tight angle that beat Sean McCarthy and kissed off the crossbar before being cleared by the Academy defence.

Half Time - Wick Academy 1 - Deveronvale 0

Academy started the second half like they did the first with an early chance. Gary Weir did well to get in a good cross which Nigel MacKenzie got his head to but his effort went flashing passed the outside of the post.

Vale started to hit their straps and equalised on the 70th minute. Nathan Ross drove down the right flank, cut inside the penalty area skipping several challenges and set up Kevin Adams and he made no mistake in finding the net from 6 yards out.

1 - 1

With seven minutes left on the clock Chris Blackhall had a shot on target that Sean McCarthy dived down to collect but the ball bounced back out of his arms and Gary Harris was on the ball like a flash to turn it home and secure the win.

1 - 2
