Team news for matches on Sat 27th July as new season kicks off

Highland Football League  

 

Brora Rangers v Fort William  

Brora are the bookie's favourites for the Highland League title, and they will aim to get off to a winning start at home to Fort William. New signings Jordan Macrae and Dutchman Bjorn Wagenaar could all make their debuts, but Greg Morrison, Gavin Morrison, Dale Gillespie, Ally Macdonald and Steven Mackay are all unavailable.  

 

Fort pulled off quite a coup this week, setting up a link with Caley Thistle which has allowed them to sign no fewer than nine young players on loan from the Championship side. Boss Russell MacMorran is likely to include several of them in his squad for the trip to Dudgeon Park. 

 

Deveronvale v Nairn County  

Deveronvale kick off their campaign against Nairn at Princess Royal Park, a team they finished just one point and one place behind last season. Ross Archibald and Courtney Cooper joined the club in the summer and could make their debuts against County.  

 

Glenn Main, Adam Naismith and Angus Dey are all unavailable and miss out for the visitors. Gordon McNab could make his first start after joining the club earlier this month.  

 

Fraserburgh v Wick Academy  

Broch start their season against Wick at Bellslea and they'll be without the suspended Bryan Hay, while Jamie Beagrie is offshore. Ryan Christie, Gary Harris, Cameron Buchan and Ryan Sargent are all still out with long-term injuries.  

 

Wick will be aiming to build on a decent second half of the season last term, and they will travel without the injured Marc Macgregor and Jack Henry.   

 

Inverurie Locos v Buckie Thistle  

Locos begin their campaign with a cracking home clash with Buckie Thistle. Boss Neil Cooper has a full squad to choose from, with major summer signings Eric Watson and Calum Dingwall likely to be involved. 

 

Lucas Davidson is suspended for the Jags, while Craig Dorrat (shoulder) and Ceiran McLean (knee) miss out through injury. Better news on the injury front for Buckie as John McLeod is their only remaining long-term absentee.  

 

Keith v Formartine Utd  

Keith kick off their season against Formartine at Kynoch Park. Scott Begg and Craig MacAskill are both suspended, while new signing Kieran Yeats could make his debut. 

 

Formartine have invested well in young talent in the summer as they aim to mount a title challenge this term. Michael Clark, Errol Watson, Scott Lisle and Liam Strachan could all make their debuts against the Maroons. 

 

Lossiemouth v Huntly  

New signings Kevin Flett, Scott Wilson, Scott Gordon and Kris Duncan could all be involved for Lossie as they begin the new season at home to Huntly. Jack MacArthur, Niall Kennedy and Dean McColl miss out through injury.  

 

Huntly will travel without the injured Glenn Murison, Paul Esslemont, Cory Ritchie and Chris Hay. Cai Matthew could be in the squad after signing for the club from Formartine this week, while Euan Storrier and Liam MacDonald have also re-joined the club on loan. 

 

Strathspey Thistle v Clach  

Strathspey and Clach will both aim to improve on bottom-six finishes last season, and they'll begin that task when they meet in a season opener at Seafield Park. The Grantown Jags have signed former Wick defender Andrew Hardwick, former Buckie full-back Andrew Skinner and ex-Nairn St Ninian striker Scott Morrison, and all could feature today. Liam Taylor is likely to replace the departed Scott Lisle in attack.

 

Clach boss Brian MacLeod has a fully fit squad to choose from, minus Michael Finnis who is serving a two-match ban carried over from last season. 

 

Turriff Utd v Rothes  

Turriff start their campaign with a home game against Rothes and they could field a number of new signings, including former Dundee Utd striker Robert Ward and ex-Peterhead youngster Lewis Buxton. Graeme Mathieson has also joined the club as Assistant Manager.  

 

Rothes are at full strength and could hand debuts to new boys Ben Johnstone, Aidan Wilson and Ewen MacDonald. Defender Ryan McRitchie has also returned to the club on a permanent deal.
