Keiss 2 v Wick Thistle 4 (20-5-2014) Keiss Scorers - Scott Cormack, Ben Mackay.
Wick Academy..........6..........Strathspey Thistle........1 Reporter Noel Donaldson THE Scorries flew high in their seasonal swan song, serving the brand of football that has all to often been absent during the current match card. While Wick were doubtless keen to demonstrate that they are a cut above a 1-1 draw against lowly Fort William, last week, the home team got an early scare when Thistle marked their card by opening the scoring in just six minutes, John Ross netting.
Wick Academy 3...........Rothes 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson ROTHES must have felt cheated out of a share of the spoils as Alan Farquhar stole all three points for Academy with an excellent header seconds from the final whistle. The decider saw the home side return to winning ways a after a frustrating series of games and they appeared at times, more like the team that wowed their fans in the earlier part of the season.
Wick Academy........1 Formartine United........1 Reporter Noel Donaldson Wick's penalty bogey struck again, in the fifteenth minute and gave the visitors a welcome lead, United's acquisition Cammy Keith making no mistake from the spot. But any suggestion that the visitors were set for an easy ride was soon dispelled as Academy dug in.
Wick Academy........1........Nairn County........2 Reporter Noel Donaldson BAR a couple of near goal-scoring opportunities, one at each end, it looked as if the match was destined to be a dour slog until Wick broke the deadlock just before the break. Craig Shearer's long range rocket gave Nairn keeper Callum Donaldson no chance and set the home side up with an advantageous lead which brought the game to life.
Reporter Noel Donaldson Wick Academy......0......Brora Rangers.......1 IF BRORA had come over the Ord expecting to inflict numerical damage on Academy then they were greatly mistaken. The Scorries stuck to their task, last night, and had it not been for a late, disputed, penalty in favour of the Reds, a draw would have been a fair result in this eagerly-awaited derby return clash.
Macadie's classic free kick gives Wick a share of the spoils. A COUPLE of set pieces and a handful of chances that didn't bear fruit, plus an irritating wind, combined to make the game a dour affair for the optimistic fans who turned out at Harmsworth Park, yesterday.
Wick Academy..4 Turriff United..1 Reporter Noel Donaldson WICK ACADEMY bounced back from their four defeats on-the-trot to get back on track with a emphatic 4-1 win over Turriff United at Harmsworth Park. A first-half barrage of three goals within 10 minutes put the points out of reach for the visitors - as was the Scorries' first goal.
Wick Academy 2 Deveronvale 3. THESE festive fans dreaming of "a black and white" Christmas had their hopes dashed at a chilly Harmsworth Park when they saw their team beaten by a hungry, fast-moving Deveronvale.
Wick Academy 2 Inverurie Locos 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson Academy, staved off late pressure to secure a share of the spoils. Fast-moving Locos were the more focused side from start and disrupted Wick\'s normally fluent, passing game.
We-ir in celebration mode say Academy and no wonder as Gary grabs a record eight goals Wick Academy......8........Fort William.......1 Report by Noel Donaldson FORT WILLIAM was swamped by a second-half deluge of goals from Academy's goal machine, Gary Weir. The tenacious striker netted two in the first half and hit the visitors for six in the second.
Wick Academy 5.........Lossiemouth......2 Report by Noel Donaldson WICK ACADEMY got the best possible boost in advance of their crucial, second round, Scottish Cup tie with Turriff, on Saturday - an emphatic 5-2 dispatch of Lossiemouth, in the league. However, as the scoreline suggests, the Scorries didn’t have it all their own way on their home ground.
Wick Academy.....1......Cove Rangers.....1 Report by Noel Donaldson WICK missed the chance to hold onto their top table spot, albeit jointly with Brora, but to be honest they didn’t really look like matching the Dudgeon Park outfit in the league table, on this display against the league champions and slipped to second place. It was only a superb, 71 first-minute rocket from all of 30 yards out, from Jamie Pickles which - as it turned out - saved the Scorries bacon, Cove equalising in the final phase.

Report by Noel Donaldson Academy take it and then dish it out. Academy shrugged off early pressure and settled down to what they do best – incisive, attacking football – to retain their table-topping position, albeit on goal difference.

Saturday 3rd August 2013 - Bignold Park, Wick WICK ACADEMY 2 BUCKIE THISTLE 0 Report - Noel Donaldson THIS was no season opening classic with both sides struggling to cope with the windy conditions. But the positive that the Scorries camp will take from it, is the all-important one, all three points and that too, without three key players, as well as the fact that their unbeaten home record remains intact.
