Scottish Cup Fourth Round

Partick Thistle v Formartine Utd
Formartine face the biggest game in the club's history when they travel to Glasgow to take on Premiership side Partick Thistle in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

Boss Kris Hunter may opt for a more defensive formation against the in-form Jags, who have spent a week in La Manga during the SPL winter break for warm weather training. Ryan Scully, Stuart Bannigan and Gary Fraser are unavailable for the home side.

Highland League

Brora Rangers v Deveronvale
Brora take on Deveronvale at Dudgeon Park and they will be without the injured Joe Malin, Gavin Morrison and Paul Brindle. John Pickles is also unavailable, but new singing from Ross County Kyle Macleod is included in the squad.

Vale make the long trip north minus defenders Scott Fraser, Kevin Adams and Lukas Krobot. Graeme Watt is also doubtful and will have a late fitness test.

Clach have several players unavailable for the visit of Rothes, with Paul Smith, Duncan Jones, Mark Kennedy and Stuart Leslie unavailable; and James Beeston, Matthew Grant, Martin Callum and Ian Penwright all out injured.

Steven MacDonald takes charge of Rothes for the first time and assistant manager Grant Munro could make his debut for the club at Grant Street.

Fort William v Forres Mechanics
Fort William welcome back Barna Tot, Iain MacLellan and Michael Ellis for the home clash with Forres, while new signing Michael Corbett could make his debut.

Scott Moore , Jordan Wardrope, Graham Fraser, Owen Paterson and Fraser Forbes are all missing for the visitors, while there is also a doubt over Kyle Scott.

Huntly v Buckie Thistle
Huntly are boosted by this week's capture of David Donald on a two and a half year contract, as they prepare to face league leaders Buckie at Christie Park. Martin MacDonald is the home side's only absentee through injury.

Buckie went six points clear at the top of the table with a comprehensive win over Lossie last weekend. Kai Ross, Andy Low and Andrew Skinner remain out injured for the visitors.

Keeper Booth moves to Locos

Inverurie have signed keeper Ryan Booth.

The 18-year-old has been on loan at Harlaw Park from Dundee United and joins on a deal through to the end of 2018.

Locos boss Neil Cooper said: "Ryan's arrival adds real competition for the keeper's jersey and it's pleasing to capture his signature upon him leaving Tannadice.

"I'd like to thank Dundee United for being a pleasure to deal with."

Brora snap up Macleod and Counsell

Brora Rangers have confirmed the signings of striker Kyle Macleod from Ross County and goalkeeper Will Counsell from Alness FC. Macleod also had a spell at Elgin City and has signed for Brora despite much interest from elsewhere.

Cattachs Manager Ross Tokely was delighted at the signing: “Kyle is a proven striker, powerful both on the ground and in the air. I’m delighted that he has chosen Brora Rangers and I know he will be a great asset to the club”.

Counsell was part of the Brora Rangers youth squads before joining Alness and has signed a two and a half year deal. Chairman William Powrie is delighted with the acquisition as it furthers their strategy of developing youth players: “Will has impressed everybody whilst training with us and Joe Malin feels he has real potential”.

Donald pens deal with Huntly

Defender David Donald has signed a two-year deal with Huntly after he secured a release from Aberdeen amateur side Woodside.

The 29-year-old, who has played for Aberdeen, Peterhead and Formartine United, featured at right-back in the 5-2 win over Deveronvale.

Huntly co-manager Andy Roddie noted he was impressed his most recent acquisition.

He said: "David possesses a lot quality he’s been taught well through his career at Aberdeen, Peterhead and latterly Formartine. He lost a bit of appetite for the game but [co-manager] Tommy Wilson has been on at him for a while now and credit to Tommy he’s managed to pull off the deal.

"We played him against Deveronvale and he’s put in a great performance and that’s another quality signing for us."

Broch land Turriff duo

Fraserburgh have secured the services of Paul Young and Lewis Davidson for next season.

Currently at Turriff United, the duo will join the Broch once their contracts run out at the end of the current campaign.

Meanwhile, Turriff have signed former Aberdeen, Peterhead and Inverurie Locos player David Ross on a short-term deal.

Keith resign Keith

Cammy Keith has rejoined Keith.

The striker, 29, left Kynoch Park in 2013 to join Formartine.

He has now moved back to the Maroons from United on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Keith manager Allan Hale said "I am absolutely delighted to welcome Cammy back to Kynoch Park.

"This has been the type of signing I have attempted to make since I came to the club and by signing Cammy it is a clear intent of the ambition we have as a club to progress in order to challenge at the top end of the Highland League, where I feel a club like Keith should be."
