Neill down but back up again to net historic winner

One of the most unassuming players in the Nairn County squad turned out to be the scorer of the winning goal at Allan Park on Saturday, ending the Wee County's long running 27 year record without a win at the ground.

Eight could be said to be a lucky and unlucky number for the player who netted a cracking volley on the drop, eight minutes after he was clattered to the ground and had to go off injured, struggling with his breathing.

However he was back on his feet and ready to give his thoughts to http://www.hflhub.co.uk reporters John Innes and David Reid:

"I don't score that many, but saw the keeper come for it, went for it first time and thought I'll just see what happens. I suppose it will be classed as one of the best goals of my career.

"It is a great achievement for the club, we're absolutely delighted to come and win at Cove as a player. Before the win we'd not had the best of starts but everyone knows it will be a hard season, around ten teams are involved in trying to win the league.

Matchday Summaries Saturday 17th August: Four teams continue to set the pace with nine from nine

Nairn County came from behind to defeat champions Cove Rangers 2-1 at Allan Park, and record their first victory of the season. After Ryan Stott's first-half strike, quickfire goals from Connor Gethins and Andrew Neill turned the tide in favour of Les Fridge's men who claimed a welcome three points.

However, the four teams who went into this afternoon's Highland League action leading the way remain on top, after each maintained their runs of three straight wins. 

Wick Academy top the pile on goal difference following a 3-0 win over Fraserburgh at Harmsworth Park, with Richard Macadie on target twice.

They are followed by Formartine United who overcame Fort William 5-0 at Claggan Park. Brora Rangers and Inverurie Loco Works both won by the odd goal, with Brora defeating Buckie 1-0 at Dudgeon Park thanks to Zander Sutherland's goal against his former side, while Inverurie Locos came through 4-3 against Turriff in a thrilling encounter in which they came back from a 3-1 half-time deficit. Both sides finished the game with ten men.

Huntly continued their unbeaten start to the season with a fine 1-1 draw away to Forres Mechanics, with Pawel Nowacki's opener cancelled out by Simon Allan's free-kick.

Clachnacuddin came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at Lossiemouth, with Kyle Whyte's second-half goal levelling proceedings after Matthew Davidson had broken the deadlock.

Deveronvale and Keith both recorded comprehensive victories, with Vale winning 4-0 away to Strathspey Thistle, and Keith defeating Rothes 5-0 at Kynoch Park with Andy MacAskill and Callum Dingwall both netting doubles.

Matchday Stats: Saturday 17th August 2013

The fifteen minute period before half-time was by far the most popular scoring phase with 12 strikes hitting the net. There were to be no hat-trick heroes this week, however three players hit the net twice with two coming in the same game.

Two of the weekend's three red cards were also brandished at the same venue, with opposing players Mike McKenzie and Gordon Forsyth dismissed in the Locos v Turriff clash at Harlaw Park.

Overall, the scoring average for the weekend fell below that of the season by 0.32. There has been plenty late drama already, reflected by the fact the most popular scoring period in league matches for the season has been between 76-90 minutes.

The two most northern clubs in the league, Brora Rangers and Wick Academy, have notched up five straight victories in all competitions, while Fort William and Strathspey Thistle are on a losing streak of four consecutive games.

Team of the Week 10th August 2013: Lethal Liam the difference for Rothes

Reverting to the same 3-4-3 formation as last week's selection, some of the stiffest competion for a place came between the sticks with Joe Malin edging out fellow 8 out of 10 scorer Stuart Knight.

Craig Dorrat earns his second successive Team of the Week appearance following a two-goal, 9 out of 10 performance for Huntly. He is joined by Ross Anderson and Graeme Grant.

Zander Sutherland set Brora on their way to a fine away win at Nairn County, and he takes his place in midfield alongside Formartine's Man of the Match Neil McVitie, Sam Mackay who was a hat-trick hero for the second time this season, along with Aaron Conway who scored one and assisted the other in Buckie's victory over Fraserburgh.

However, for the second week running Player of the Week can be found up front. Liam Forbes edges it for a hat-trick which was all so crucial for Rothes as it earnt the Speysiders their first victory of the season over Fort William. SuperSub goes to two-goal Gary Weir, meanwhile Thomas Shaw earns the golden whistle.

Winger Czechs In At Huntly

Huntly’s foreign legion continues to grow with the signing of Czech winger Petr Stepanek on a three year deal.

Stepanek has most recently featured for Czech side FK Baumit Jablonec and featured as a Trialist in Huntly’s pre-season win over junior side Lewis United at the end of July.

Having had to wait on international clearance for the 20 year old, Manager Dave McGinlay is pleased to be able to start getting Petr playing in competitive games.

“I think he’s a player who given time will be a very good player for the club and that’s why we’ve got him secured on a three year deal. I have to give a big thank you to Marek Mádle who was instrumental in getting him over and having seen what he can do when he came in as a trialist during pre-season he really impressed us with the deliveries he put in for our forwards.

Petr has worked with us in training since then and has a good work rate and is strong on the ball and for a winger he’s technically gifted. His English is coming along and Marek has helped him too and he even seems to be picking up a bit of Doric from some of the lads.”
