Match Report - Noel Donaldson
Academy..4..Deveronvale..1
Saturday 18th May 2013
Harmsworhth Park, Wick

WICK Academy ended their season in style securing third position in the league table after dismissing Deveronvale 4-1.

The high fliers notched up a number of other, statistical, records, not least of being unbeaten at home.

Jamie Pickles completed a unique hat-trick taking the man-of-the match award for the third consecutive match. Player of the Year was Alan Farquhar.

And there was every justification at presentation time for suggesting that the Scorries were well placed to go all the way, next season. Tributes were paid to the squad and manager and assistant, Barry Wilson and Richard Hughes, the staff and the clubs army of loyal supporters.

A delighted crowd of about 500 saw Academy take the lead through Gary Weir in the opening minutes at Harmsworth Park, Sam Mackay and Davie Allan making it a mountain to climb for the visitors, before the break. Vale took the first step soon after the restart, Graeme Watt netting but Allan saw to it that there was never going to be a Banffshire resurgence, by completing his double and Wicks foursome.

The Academy support has a new flock of fans. The white-shirted group bearing a scorrie emblem banner, delighted the crowds with their vocal support, particularly their version of a new dance.

Swaying to the tune of the Conga, they chanted - You can do the scor-rie....you can do the scor-rie.

Yet to be chorographed, it might draw on the popular Chirpy Chirpy, Cheep-Cheep fun number of yesteryear, with flapping elbows and outstretched plane-like arms.

Roll on next season!

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.
