Honours even in end-of-season encounterThumbnail for article : Honours even in end-of-season encounter
Wick Academy 2 Formartine United 2 ACADEMY shook off their recent poor form to grab a well-earned share of the points on home turf against one of the Highland League's strongest sides, in the final of the season at Harmsworth Park, on Saturday.   Quick- moving United monopolised the early play and were rewarded with a lucky Scott Ferries strike in the 10th minute which crept over the line after a deflection.

Wick Academy 2 Forres Mechanics 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson THIS was a day more suited to those with webbed feet rather than footballers but both sides defied the elements and gave their fans their money's-worth.   The Scorries, building on their return to form, but without key personnel, Alan Farquhar and Davie Allan, drew first blood early in the uncompromising wind and rain...

Wick Academy 3 Clach 1 Reporter Noel Donaldson BOTH sides were clearly up for it in the first half but neither team was able to beat their respective defences and keepers who were very much on their game.   While it made for an entertaining first half, supporters could have been forgiven for starting to fear things might play out for a goal-less draw..

Academy unable to conjure up mid-week magicThumbnail for article : Academy unable to conjure up mid-week magic
Wick Academy 0 Fraserburgh 1 Reporter Noel Donaldson ACADEMY supporters' hopes were doubtless high that the miracle mid-week comeback by their team against Forres Mechanics, would be the catalyst to getting to grips with their home results jinx.   In the event, the encounter with a well-marshalled Broch outfit was something of an anti-climax, Academy unable to replicate anything close to that scintillating 5-3 performance - underlining their inherent lack of consistency and failing to secure a draw even, in a game that was no classic.

Late GOAL denies Academy three pointsThumbnail for article : Late GOAL denies Academy three points
Reporter Noel Donaldson Wick Academy 2 Deveronvale 2 A LATE goal, ruled offside, prevented Academy taking all three points and hopefully sparking some home wins.   Given the effort put in by the two sides, though, a draw was probably a fair result.

Wick Academy l Inverurie Locos 1 Reporter Noel Donaldson THIS certainly fell far short of Academy's best performance and Locos, on the other hand, will have rightfully felt cheated at not taking all three points, given the efforts they put in.   Failure to capitalise on their equaliser during repeated onslaughts on the Scorries defence and some sharp keeping by Sean McCarthy denied the visitors the spoils.
