Team news Sat 28th February

Highland League Cup Quarter-Finals 

Formartine Utd. v Cove Rangers

Match of the day is at North Lodge Park where Formartine will look to repeat their 3-0 win over Cove a fortnight ago. Neil McVitie misses out for the home side and will be replaced in the starting line-up by Hamish Munro. Calum Bagshaw is doubtful and youngster Cammy Booth is in the squad. 


Cove travel without their two former Dons, the suspended Stuart Duff and injured Chris Clark. 


Dunn asks to leave Rothes

Rothes have placed Michael Dunn on the transfer list at his own request.

Buckie sign keeper McGinley

Buckie Thistle have signed keeper Matt McGinley from BSC Glasgow until the end of the season.

The goalie, who is studying to be a PE teacher, recently relocated to Aberdeen.

McGinley was on the bench for Buckie in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Turriff. He is set to return to BSC Glasgow next season.

Fraser staying at Forres

Steven Fraser has agreed to sign a new deal with Forres Mechanics.

The defender had been on the transfer list after indicating that traveling from his home in Aberdeen to games and training with the Can-Cans was proving too difficult.

However, Forres have reached an agreement with Fraser, allowing him to continue his career at Mosset Park.

The former Rothes player now intends to sign a new contract with the Can-Cans, while continuing to train with Formartine nearer his home.

Ironically, Fraser scored against United last Saturday - netting a 85th minute header to secure a 1-1 draw for his home-town team.

He said: "I'm so proud to have actually got the chance to play at Mosset Park and the longer it's gone on the more it started to sink in - I might have been playing my football elsewhere but I just couldn't do it.

"My goal on Saturday summed it up for me. I've never felt like that before, during a football match. It was the best feeling ever. I'll carry on training with Formartine to reduce the amount of traveling but I am delighted to be staying."

Meanwhile, Forres have also agreed new deals with youngsters Jamie Pick, Brandon Hutcheson, Connor McIver and Steven Simpson.

Huntly midfielder Guild retires

Huntly midfielder Russell Guild has announced his retirement from football.

The 33-year-old made 511 appearances for the Christie Park club.

He said: "I have really enjoyed my career playing in the Highland League and it has been a great honour to play for my hometown team during that whole time. 

"However I am now 33 and the effects of training and playing over so many years have finally started to catch up with me and the injuries have just become more regular and harder to get over. I really felt that now was the right time to call it a day."
