Good work, Jimmy.

ETA: Although you seem to have 1-1 in twice for "most often" scores. (Maybe I'm missing something.)

Shortest winning run is 3 games.

Eh? I'm sure I saw a team win 0 games in a row once.

I think it's that, if you take the longest winning runs of every team, the shortest winning run belongs to Strathspey.   They've never won 4 in a row.

 

Which means that Fort must have managed 4 in a row at least once.

That is correct.

Fort William once scored 9 (count ‘em!) goals in a Highland League game. Nine.

The silver lining of the future Ross County banter years is that we can start working our way up this table again.

Ross County once conceded 7 goals to Fort William. Revenge is due.

Basically the HL since I was born.  I would've been born one month into season 85-86.  Great stats in there.

I'll hopefully get the rest of 1980's done soon enough. Taking it back to when Brora or Lossie showed up might be a reach, tho.
