Reporter Noel Donaldson Wick Academy 0 Clacnacuddin 3.   ACADEMY paid dearly for a first-half handful of chances that, for one reason or another, went abegging and recorded an inauspicious start to their league challenge.

Reporter Noel Donaldson.   Cove Rangers 4 Wick Academy 0 GREAT EXPECTATIONS.....but this much-hyped cup encounter proved to be something of an anti-climax at Clach's neutral Grant Street Park, yesterday (Saturday 11 april 2015).

Wick Academy 1 Clachnacuddin 0 Reporter Noel Donaldson.   ACADEMY gave their fans some anxious moments as they hung on to their waver-thin, first-half lead for victory and despite it being enough to see them through to their first-ever semi-finals of the Highland League Cup, the team will need a better performance if they are to get a crack at the big one.

Wick Academy 3 Turriff United 4 Reporter Noel Donaldson THE last-minute strike by Gary Harris denied the Scorries a share of the points and ended their 14-game unbeaten record in a seven-goal ding-dong thriller before a bumper crowd at Harmsworth Park.   The tension was tangible as United levelled the scoreline at three all, with a couple of minutes of injury time left, and local supporters doubtless content to settle for a share of the points.

Wick Academy 1 Brora Rangers 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson THE SCORRIES turned in a gutsy performance in front of a packed Harmsworth Park, last night and must have felt cheated by that late Brora decider as well as left wondering what might have been had some of the Wick chances borne fruit.   The wee Rangers' keeper, Jo Malin was partly "to blame" for that, pulling off some spectacular saves.

Wick Academy 3 Fraserburgh United .2 (half-time 2-1) Reporter Noel Donaldson - Saturday 30 August 2014 IT was perhaps poetic justice, that, in a game where penalty issues caused much controversy, Academy snatched the decider from the spot, seconds from the final whistle.   Even then, there was drama, as Scorries' supporters held their breath while referee Graham Elder, who initially awarded Wick a free kick from the edge of the box, consulted his linesman and then pointed to the spot.

Academy derailed by locomotive works team Reporter Noel Donaldson A NINE-goal encounter but no thriller for Academy's fans as the bulk of the strikes were down to their opponents, in one of the Scorries' heaviest home defeats.   It began optimistically for the home side with Jack Halliday netting from close in, in 17 minutes, but the early promise was painfully snuffed out, when, in a nightmare few minutes Locos scored three times and David Ross rubbed salt in the Scorries' wounds by making it 4-1 before the break, from a rebound.

North of Scotland Cup Reporter Noel Donaldson Wick Academy 2 Clachnacuddin 0 WICK got off to a perfect start through a Gary Weir strike in the opening minutes but it didn't deter the visitors who demonstrated they wanted that semi-final North of Scotland Cup slot just as much.   The two teams served up an entertaining 90 minutes, which, unlike the earlier league encounter had no nail-biting finish as Academy went on to consolidate their lead.

Wick Academy 3 Deveronvale 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson ACADEMY and their fans couldn't have wished for a better season opener than this, with Richard Macadie snatching the decider in the dying minutes.   It was essentially a game of one half as the first period was a non-productive tussle with Academy looking the more threatening.

Wick Academy 8 Orkney AFA.......0 Reporter Noel Donaldson THERE can be no more demoralising predicament for a football team that being a couple of goals down and trying to come to terms with the likelihood that the ball was going to hit the back of their net a few more times.  That must have been what the Orkney players were dreading when they encountered an on-form, free-scoring Wick Academy side, on the crest of a wave having beaten the first two teams on their friendlies list, one of them Scottish Premier outfit Ross County, at that.
