Team news for matches on Saturday 2nd September

Highland League

Deveronvale v Brora Rangers
Liam Forbes and Chris Blackhall are unavailable for Vale and miss the visit of Brora to Princess Royal Park. Steven Davidson is also doubtful, but Grant Noble and Dane Ballard return to the squad.

Brora boss Ross Tokely has a fully-fit squad to choose from for the trip to Banff.

Formartine Utd v Nairn County
Formartine play their first home fixture since the departure of Kris Hunter when high-flying Nairn visit North Lodge Park. United returned to form with a superb win at Turriff in midweek and a win today would see them draw level on points with their opponents.

Nairn produced a great comeback to defeat nine-man Wick at Station Park in midweek and they travel with the same squad today.

Forres Mechanics v Huntly
Forres have had a tough run of fixtures and they'll hope to return to winning ways against Huntly at Mosset Park. Jordan Milne, Jordan Wardrope , Ross MacPherson and Ryan Stuart are all out, while there are also doubts over Simon Allan, Stuart Soane and Graham Fraser.

Huntly have Martin Charlesworth out with a rib injury, but Michael Clark is available again after suspension.

Fraserburgh v Strathspey Th
Fraserburgh take on Strathspey at Bellslea as they look to continue their excellent start to the season. Paul Young is Broch's only absentee through injury.

Strathspey recorded their biggest ever Highland League win at Fort William last weekend, only to be brought crashing back to earth with a thumping defeat to Locos in midweek.

Hunter falls short in bid to take Formartine to top

Reporter John Innes has taken a look back at Kris Hunter's reign at Formartine, following his departure as manager.

Kris Hunter will be remembered in Formartine’s history as a manager who took them to their second runners-up finishing spot in the Highland League at the end of 2015/16, four points off winners Cove Rangers (along with Brora Rangers). 

The Aberdeen side had come out on top three years before in 2012/13. To emphasise the closeness to success against their bogey side further, a last-minute Jason Brown winner in last season’s Breedon Highland League Cup final at Fraserburgh gave John Sheran’s side a win by the odd goal in three.  

A top striker with Fraserburgh, Hunter was one of the inspirational figures as the Broch went on to clinch their first Highland League title success in 60 years back in 2002.

He would return to Bellslea as boss 10 seasons later but not before being appointed the first Turriff United manager when they joined the League in 2009.

A man of high ambition, Hunter was appointed by chairman Atholl Cadger at North Lodge Park in March 2015, after the sacking of former Aberdeen and Inverness Caley Thistle boss Steve Paterson.

Aberdeenshire Cup final success over Inverurie Locos would be the first to come the club’s way since their elevation from the junior ranks. But Hunter knew that nothing but top spot in the major competition would be good enough.

After three wins and a draw in their opening four games, a 3-0 defeat at Buckie Thistle last Saturday followed by the surrendering of a two-goal lead at home to Clachnacuddin forced the parting of the ways.

Formartine currently sit in ninth position, six points off leaders Cove Rangers.

Team news for matches on Saturday 26th August

Formartine Utd v Clach
Formartine were no match for champions Buckie last weekend and they'll look to return to winning ways at home to Clach. Jevan Anderson, Scott Henry and Jonny Crawford all missed the trip to Victoria Park and boss Kris Hunter will hope they're available to bolster the back line.

Clach are without John Campbell, David McGurk and Liam Shewan, but Stuart Leslie, Daniel Maclennan and Michael Finnis are available again and return to the squad.

Forres Mechanics v Cove Rangers
Forres followed up their draw at Rothes last Saturday by going nap against the Speysiders in the North of Scotland Cup in midweek. They face a huge test against unbeaten league leaders Cove Rangers and remain without Jordan Milne , Ryan Stuart and Jordan Wardrope. Graeme Grant is also a doubt with a knee problem.

Cove continued their superb start to the season with a comfortable win over second-placed Huntly in the Aberdeenshire Cup on Wednesday night. They are still without Johnny Smith and Ryan Stott for the trip to Mosset Park.

Fort William v Strathspey Th
Fort recorded their first win of the season with a comprehensive victory over a young Elgin City outfit in the North of Scotland Cup during the week. Farquhar Macrae and Danny Highet both miss the bottom of the table clash with Strathspey with hamstring injuries.

Strathspey lost to a late goal at Lossiemouth last weekend after leading twice and they'll look to get their first league points on the board at Claggan Park.

Fraserburgh v Brora Rangers
Fraserburgh are in fine form and continued their unbeaten run against Cove when a late Marc Dickson effort earned them a point at Harlaw Park. Boss Mark Cowie has a full squad to choose from for the visit of Brora Rangers to Bellslea.

Brora bounced back to winning ways against Clach in the cup in midweek and they will travel without Gavin Morrison, who is suspended after his red card in the defeat to Inverurie Locos.
