  1. Doesnt seem to be a Hi Hi thread, so I'll start one. I go to Millfield from time to time and always enjoy my visits there, usually see an entertaining game and in addition, the best pies I have ever tasted anywhere, let alone at a football match. Not long ago, I was at a Scottish Junior cup replay at Haddington where the home team were 4-0 down with something like 12 minutes to go and came back to 4-4, eventually winning on penalties. Today came close to a re run. The home side were 4-0 down after 28 minutes and at what seemed a combination of being overwhelmed by Dundonald as well as according them far too much respect. At that point, a double figure defeat was on the cards. The second half saw Haddington come out with a much more positive attitude and they pulled it back to 4-3, should have equalised with 4 minutes to go with a through ball that led to one on one with the Blubell keeper but the chance was scorned. Great game and nice folk as well including club official Dave MacKay who gave me a run down on the clubs situation. The first half suggested a club that was going to be over run; the second half showing suggested one that if it repeats that attitude and with the addition of a couple of old heads in the mid field and at the back, would see be a team that should be frightened off no-one in the league. For Dundonald, Ross Drummong looked classy and Archie Campbell was prominent in attack. Interesting offer of some "Dundonald Dope" by a member off the travelling party as I left the Bowling Club after a post match pint; turned out the substance in question was snuff! Pity more locals dont turn up to support the Hi His, its a nice set up and a great location. One of non league footballs more picturesque settings.

  6. Guitarist Thread

    Agree. In my teens, I wanted a Les Paul Custom, by the time I could afford one, I realised that finding a good one was a bit like a needle in a haystack. At the other end of the quality scale is PRS whose quality control is superb. Levinson Blade is another with very high production values and quality control. There’s no excuse for Gibson, especially when a Les Paul Custom is now over £4K new
  7. Guitarist Thread

    Buying a guitar unseen is risky for any level of player. At entry level, there is more lilley to be variable quality control and buying unseen could end up with a dog. As you progress, you become more aware of what is important to you in a guitar and equally important that you "try before you buy" to make sure it is actually what you want. Even at the high end, quality control can be variable, particulalry true of Gibson; I have always found PRS quality to be consistently high. Hence I have 5 US core models, one off which, the Starla, I bought "blind" because (a) I knew PRS quality and (b) got a fantastic deal on it.
  8. Best junior player you’ve ever seen!

    Martin McGarvey in his Arthurlie days- wonderful right foot and great vision.

  10. Wimpy. Is Morganties still there? My lasting childhood memory of Dingwall was being dragged to Christies the Dentist.
  11. Agee with the Highlands of Scotland as a desirable location, but Dingwall? What has it got to attract anyone?

    Karl Mackay was with Caley. He had a lot of potential and was a first team squad player by his late teens. I think he was loaned to Nairn and sold to Clach in 1991; he was seen as being a niche signing for them. He dropped out of HL football a few years later and by his late 20s, instead of being a HL star like he looked like being in his late teens, he was playing junior for Nairn St Ninians. Don’t know the story but he seems to have been a wasted talent; shame as he really was a very promising player

    Caley Legend. Joined from County in close season 1986 along with Alan Duff and was pretty well a fixture in the team from his arrival (apart from his brief sojourn to Australia) , scoring twice on his debut in a pre season friendly v Cowdenbeath in a 5-0 win. At one point in season 91-92 was joint top scorer in the Scottish Cup having netted v Stenhousemuir (right foot), Clyde (header) and St Johnstone (cool as cool penalty) and an incredible goals per game ratio for a mid fielder. RIP, Alan, a real hero of the Howden Enders

    This is so sad. One off my all time favourite Caley players. Saw him on his debut for Caley in a pre season friendly against Cowdenbeath. He scored twice in a 5-0 win at Telford Street. He has to be one of the highest goal scoring midfielders in the more recent years of the Highland League and was Caleys Scottish Cup talisman in season 1991-92, scoring against Stenhousemuir, Clyde and a cool penalty v St Johnstone. It’s an aside, but his uncle, John Henry Hercher, ran my local, the Balblair Ferry Inn in the Black Isle, where I was brought up. RIP Alan, Caley legend and forever a hero
