Transfer news: Rothes continue recruitment drive

Rothes have snapped up former Lossie striker Scott Dunn after he returned from a spell playing in Australia. 

The 23-year-old forward has signed a two-year deal and becomes manager Steven MacDonald’s fourth experienced signing of the close season as he continues his rebuilding job at MacKessack Park.

"He gives me a different option in that he’s good in the air but he’s also quick for a big boy," said MacDonald. He turned down several other Highland League clubs to come to us."

Dunn joins Kris Duncan, Paul Macleod and Steven Fraser as major signings lured to the club since the end of the season.

Elsewhere, Brora Rangers forward Kyle Macleod has signed a two-year deal with the club and Formartine United have snapped up hitman Sam Muirhead from junior side Newburgh Thistle. 

Buckie bosses are staying put

Buckie Thistle’s management team have agreed new contracts.

Graeme Stewart, Lewis Mackinnon, Stephen Bruce, Andy Low and Darren Strong have all penned four-year deals.

Thistle recently won the Highland League title and have moved quickly to secure their management team on long-term contracts.

Manager Stewart said: “We are all delighted with our new deals and like most of the current squad we will all be together for the next four seasons.

“We are all young and hungry for more success and are currently working hard to strengthen the squad again for next season.”

Meanwhile, Rothes have signed Kris Duncan from Keith and Paul Macleod from Nairn.

Match previews: Saturday 6th May

Highland League champions Buckie Thistle make the trip south for the SPFL Pyramid play-off second leg against East Kilbride, after the Lowland League title winners fought back from two goals down to claim a draw in a feisty affair at Victoria Park last weekend.

Russell McLean could start for the home side after coming off the bench to grab a late leveller in the first leg, while Buckie are likely to remain without Craig Dorrat, Andrew Skinner and Craig Cowie.

The Semi-Finals of the North of Scotland Cup see Rothes take on Fort William at Mackessack Park and the Moray men will be without the suspended Stephen Rennie. Fort are aiming to lift the cup for the first time in their history, while Rothes' last success came back in season 78/79.

Forres Mechanics travel to face Brora Rangers at Dudgeon Park and boss Charlie Rowley will hope to have the likes of John Cameron, Simon Allan and Alan Pollock available again after they missed the win at Halkirk United. Brora striker Paul Brindle could return from injury as they look to regain a trophy they've won twice in the last three seasons.

Buckie and East Kilbride are ready for round 2

Grant leaves Strathspey

Strathspey manager Brian Grant has stepped down from his position.

Grant's resignation follows that of assistant boss Rab Simpson, who quit his role last week.

Grant claims that both he and Simpson lost the backing of the club's chairman, Donly McLeod.

Grant said: "Although the majority of the committee voted for us to stay, we didn't get the backing of the chairman.

"If we all can't stick together, then something has to give.

"I wish the club all the best. I am disappointed that I have had to take this route."

Strathspey finished bottom of the Highland League last season, two places worse off than they managed in the previous term.

Toonsers Vs Teucheters Charity Game

Highland League legends will pull on the boots again at the home of Formartine, this Sunday, in the “Toonsers vs Teuchters” charity game in aid of Maggies Cancer Centre. 

Ex-stars from various clubs from the HFL will be in action, some for the first time in a while. 

Old rivalries will be resumed, however the day is centred around helping raise money and awareness for Maggies Care Centre. 

Maggies is a care and support centre for cancer sufferers and their families based in Aberdeen. 

The support they offer is both unique and hugely valuable to those who are both directly and indirectly affected by cancer. 

The game will feature the likes of Mark Perry, Darren Still, Jerry O’Driscoll, Barry Thompson, Billy Gordon and Derek Milne. 

Also there will be some more recognised faces from the past HFL season with managers Kris Hunter, Allan Hale and Mark Cowie. 

Current playing talent such as Roy McBain, Russell McBride and Ryan Christie will be making an appearance. 

Kick-off is at 1.30pm on Sunday 30th April, at North Lodge Park, Pitmedden.
