Team news for Saturday 27th August

Buckie Thistle v Forres Mechanics

Buckie continued their excellent start to the season by reaching the Aberdeenshire Cup final with a win over Fraserburgh in midweek. Andrew Skinner and Kai Ross will miss the visit of Forres through injury, while Ian Macrae is suspended and Chris Angus away on business.

Forres have had a tough start to the season and it doesn’t get any easier with a visit to the high-flying Jags tomorrow. Liam Baxter is unavailable for the visitors and Jordan Wardrope remains out injured.

Clach v Strathspey Thistle

Clach got their league campaign up and running with a good point against Wick last weekend and they have Matthew Grant and David McGurk back in their squad for the visit of Strathspey. Striker Colin Maclean has joined Fort William on loan.

Strathspey remain without a win this season and will travel to Inverness without the injured James McShane.

Cove Rangers v Fraserburgh

Cove joined Buckie Thistle at the top of the Highland League table with a resounding win over Huntly on Wednesday night. Manager John Sheran has a fully fit squad to choose from for their clash with last season's bogey side Fraserburgh. Goalkeeper Stuart McKenzie is fit again and returns to the .

Fraserburgh also have everyone fit for the trip to Christie Park, as they look to bounce back from their midweek cup exit at Buckie. Wednesday night's defeat was The Broch's first in the Aberdeenshire Cup since August 2013.

Nairn snap up Mackenzie and Moir

Ronnie Sharp has continued to reshape his Nairn County squad with the additions of Stephen Mackenzie and Chris Moir on deals until the end of the season.

Both players have signed on at Station Park until the end of the season and Mackenzie comes in having featured for Clachnacuddin over the last two-and-a-half seasons. 

The defender will wear the number two shirt and he said: “I am extremely delighted to be here. Since I have come in, I have been really impressed with the whole setup at the club. The training is really good and Sharpie wants us to play good football, so I am delighted to be here.

“I was speaking to Gary Kerr after I saw that he had signed for Nairn and he spoke to the people at the club and after that, I was asked to come through to train and it all took off from there.

“It is good to get another crack at the Highland League. I thought I let myself down a bit in the second half of the game at Fraserburgh but it is going to take me a few games to get back into it. I have been playing at left back and I have not played there for a good few years, so it will take me a few games to adjust to playing there, although I have been playing in the middle too.

“I just want to play as well as I can for Nairn and hopefully we can start picking up results and push up this league. We definitely have the team to do it.”

Moir returns to Station Park having spent the 2014/15 season with Nairn County. The midfielder barely featured during his first spell with the club but is looking to make up for lost time now.

He stated: “I am delighted to have the chance to play at this level again having played for Nairn previously and not being given the chance to prove myself.

“I took a break from football after I played for Nairn the last time and then got back into it by playing in the amateur league in Inverness. That got me back to enjoying my football again and I am hoping for a good run out in the team and to do the best I can. Hopefully I can do well for Nairn and we can have a good season.”

Turriff on song ahead of Hibs clash

Turriff United made it four wins in a row as they came out on top against Inverurie Locos. 

Having disposed of Montrose last Wednesday, the Haughs side will entertain Scottish Cup winners Hibs on Saturday, 3rd September, in the Irn-Bru Cup.

After the victory at Harlaw Park, reporter John Innes spoke to Turriff manager Ross Jack and 18-year-old Liverpudlian midfielder Jamie Clark, who passed a midweek trial and was signed on Friday.

Meanwhile, Locos coach Iain Alexander reflected on another bad day for his side. The interview was conducted before Kenny Coull stepped down as co-manager.
