Going to guess it’s been a good while since Fort achieved an aggregate win over two games in one season against any team in the Highland League. 

Suppose that’s the homework for today. 

I was curious so I looked into this. The last time Fort achieved this was 2016-17, when they defeated Strathspey Thistle twice (4-1 at home and 1-0 away).

They last did it in 2019/20 when they defeated Clach 1-0 in both league games. 

Strathspey in 2016/17 as mentioned.

In 2015/16, they double-dunted Rothes (P2, W2), would have gone to extra time with Clach (both games finished 2-1 to the home side), and lost on away goals to Huntly (3-3).

I'm still not convinced this is all done, TBH. There's not been much press about anything since the appeal was slung out - all I saw was some piece in the PandJ cobbled together from rumours posted on here, FitbaNorth and Twitter - and the NCL ain't said anything. 

Fort are going to do a George Costanza and show up for a Highland League game on day one of the season pretending none of this happened.

With Rowan Alexander attempting to manage the team.

I saw some interview with their new gaffer and he was saying there's a few players coming up from London with him. Still fries ma brain that Fort William seem to have a load of guys coming up from England to sign for them. I presume they're getting hospitality jobs through the chairman or the like?

The chairman says he pays them pennies, puts them up and has them doing part time jobs for their keep.

They'd have to win the NCL which is certainly possible. If they're willing to put some money into it.

Best hope would be that the North & Midlands champions are unlicenced.

Even then they're stuck having win a two legged playoff against bottom in the HL. Which is something they would struggle to do when in the same league.

I thought both Carnoustie Panmure & Lochee were going for the full licence this year? 

May be wrong...

Lochee United and Tayport have SFA licences now, and Panmure are working towards it for next season I believe. There's still the chance Panmure win the league again, or an East Craigie/Broughty/North End/Downfield (I wish) win the title and give Fort William that extra little chance, but I reckon it'll be Lochee United anyway.

Carnoustie aim to get their license in 2024, too much work needs to be done to be realistically able to get get it in 2023.

They'll probably spend a bit of time reading the rule book, too...
