Fort William 2 - 6 Nairn County

delayed start due to the local wildlife
 

Graceless stuff as usual from Nairn.

Bearing in mind it was 1-1 against the team having the worst season in HL history at 52 minutes, the arrogance here is a bit ott.

Spot on, 5-0. That's Fort at 204 GD, an average of 6.8 per game. Has to be some kind of UK record for senior football.

Next closest in Scotland is presumably Eyemouth, who have an average GD of -5.8.

There should be a prize awarded the the team with the worst goal difference each season.

The Jules Reamed trophy?

Fort lost 1-5 to Wick and 2 red cards, ending the season with a GD of 224, conceding 245 and scoring 21. Won none, drew 2 and lost 32. Points total minus 7 after having 9 points deducted for fielding a non eligible player 3 times.

P.S. Seems I got my sums right for a change. From Wick's twitter feed.

No idea who this Pint of Bovril guy is but he sounds like a pyramid obsessed southerner. 

I like how he says "The harsh reality is that you're completely out of your depth in that league and have been for many years. Maybe time to admit that and seek pastures new." That doesn't seem to stop Celtic having a go in the Champions' League...

You would have a point if Celtic hadn't sought pastures new this season by not qualifying for the Champions League...

pretty convinced that PoB fella is on here, there seems to be a lot of correlation between what they post on twitter and topics / threads on here.

Came across like he was blaming FW for not being relegated or just plan f**king off. Most of what he posted on twitter before was fairly ok, roaster comment at FW though, and seems to be enjoying attention.

It's surely been said before but the title of TGFITW must go to the Fort William supporters.

I went to a couple of games last season - the 5-0 loss away to Clach and the 5-1 defeat at home to Wick. To be fair to the Fort, they looked fairly well organised and not completely hopeless - played well in the first half hour against Wick and made it relatively competitive until the first sending off. With a regular squad and a few less postponements, no reason why they can't drag themselves off the bottom.

They played Jeanfield Swifts' youngsters in a pre-season friendly last week, won 9-3. Some good link-up play across the middle and a couple of cracking strikes. They're playing Campbeltown tomorrow which I was hoping to get across to, but I've got a bloody eye infection and not sure if I'm keen for a 6 hour drive there and back with a gammy eye.

Not been at Claggan Park since Caley’s last season in 1994. Was in Campbeltown this year though, that’s a hoor o a drive 😂

You should go for it, I’ve had a gammy eye for 7 years , never stopped me 🤣
