Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    James was born on this date in .

  • Signed For Wick Academy

    Played in the Orkney Cheese A League for Rendall FC.

  • Academy kick-off their 2012-13 Highland League campaign with today's trip to Seafield Park. Lukasz Geruzel makes his first league start for the Scorries, whilst our other new signing James Pickles is on the bench. Michael Steven sits out the first of his two match suspension following his red card against Halkirk United.

  • Wick Academy march into the final of the North of Scotland Cup after a comprehensive beating of local rivals Brora Rangers. Academy will now meet Nairn County in the final which is scheduled for the 20th October at Grant Street Park Inverness. Academy fans turned out in their numbers tonight and the noise level at the Harmsworth was at full volume for the bulk of the game. The Academy players to a man put on a performance that will live long in the memory as they battled and scrapped for every loose ball, and whilst in possession played some great silky football.

  • Academy shared the points with visitors Rothes today with a 1-1 draw. Gordon McNab curled in a well taken free-kick on 26 minutes but James Pickles poked the ball home from close range with 23 minutes left to rescue a point. Academy pushed and had chances for the winner with Rothes keeper Andrew Ross making some great saves to ensure that the spoils were shared.

  • Academy welcomed defending champions Buckie Thistle to Harmsworth Park today and the Jags ran our comprehensive 5-1 winners. Michael Steven conceded a penalty on the 29th minute which Sam Urquhart confidently dispatched. Steven Ross doubled the lead before a freak own goal from Grant Steven, heading into his own net from some distance as McCarthy came to gather, more-or-less put the game to bed. Steven Ross made it four from a well taken free-kick. Steven Anderson pulled one back from the penalty spot but the Jags went nap a minute later through substitute Stuart Taylor.
