Reports Round-up: Saturday 6th July 2013

A sizeable crowd turned out to honour Graham Lonie, the ninth Keith player in 25 years to receive a Testimonial match. Unfortunately for the 31 year old Aberdonian, Inverness Caley Thistle, with several new signings on show, were utterly clinical from start to finish coming very close to double figures 

Keith were without Murray McCulloch, Gary MacNamee and Mark Wood as well as new keeper Iain MacLeod, but other new signings Bruce Milne and Stuart Massie were in the starting line up while Formartine’s on loan forward CalumDingwall started on the bench 

The visitors looked extremely slick right from the start and were in front in the 8th minute. Ben Greenhalgh’s corner from the right went to the back post where big central defender Gary Warren was there to meet it, his powerful header nestling inside Murray Kinnaird’s left corner

Ater playing a 1-2 with Billy McKay in the box, newly promoted Under 20 striker Ryan Christie poked the ball past Kinnaird with only 10 minutes gone and within a minute it was 3-0 . This time the 18 year old Christie latched on to an easy pass with the Maroons defence still coming to terms with the loss of the second.   
 
The home team were trying to get on the ball and get their passes going but it was a tough struggle against a team four divisions higher, even without rRichieForan, at a wedding in Ireland 
 
Greenhalgh scooped a free kick narrowly over the crossbar in 18 minutes, but just before the half hour it was 4-0 Once again the lead up play was exquisite, simple but clinical football. This time the ball into the box found Christie whose squared ball to his left found onrushing captain Graeme Shinnie The former Forres Mechanics player simply walloped the ball high into the roof of the net 
 
4-0 at half time and with both players making a raft of changes at the break, might we see a quieter half? Not to be. In 51 minutes a sliderule pass into the box found 24 year old Northern Ireland internationalist Billy McKay. He scored 27 goals last term and looks well on for another great season. He took one touch and slid the ball under Kinnaird.

Billy McKay again two minutes later. A long ball into the box, Kinnaird slightly hesitant and McKay rounded him before rolling home 
 
This was turning out to be a masterclass, and one the Keith players can only learn from. And the variety was even nicer on the eye, Nick Ross playing the reverse pass,Billy McKay reading it well and beating Kinnaird from close range 
 
Former Swansea youth player Marley Watkins was next in on the act, reading a perfectly weighted ball down the right, racing on to it and squaring for Nick Ross to slide home right in front of goal.

8-0 and still a quarter of the game to play. Jonathan Smith bravely trie a long range shot which was well read by the replacement keeper 

However in the 80th minute, the final goal, Connor Pepper’s run into the box ended by a trip. A clear penalty. Graeme Shinnie’s shot was saved by Kinnaird to his left but Shinnie followed up to net the rebound   

Keith could hardly get a look in but in the closing stages, Smith blasted over from close range after excellent running along the right bye line by Craig MacAskill
