Could be worse, could follow Fort William in the Highland league.
Had a disappointing start to the season
Rothes 11 Fort William 1
Fort William 1 Buckie 11
Huntley 6 Fort William 0
Fort William 0 Turriff 10

Last season Played 34 Won 0 Drew 5 Lost 29 Scored 31 Conceded 184.

Could we loan them Fox, Jones and Palmer for the season? 

Givens. Stein. Hopkins .Elliott .Unsworth.. Heroes, one and all. Add Simonsen to the growing list

How many migrants can you fit in a Mini? Four adults and one small child, providing you have the correct safety seat fitted

Looks like they've got a mountain to climb.  

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

At least they're still going, Selkirk in the lowland league up there can't even raise at team they're so in debt, likely to go pop at any moment.

I'm sure I read somewhere a few years ago that the reason why Fort William have a truly atrocious record in the Highland League, going back a long time, is that Shinty is the main sport there, for some obscure reason.

Rather play them in a pre season friendly than Mansfield.DC might get into their fishing business too. 

Oh Aston Villa, you really couldn't afford that ref

FW is a bit of a shithole. It's where it is that's beautiful.

We'd lose to the midges, Bri. Britain's last man-eaters. Pinch

Jeez, getting picky in your mid life crisis Fred!.
If you think FW is a shithole never go further up the coast to Lochinver or Kinlochbervie!!.
Main problem with FW I found was celtic was still the most used language, as it is in most of NW Scotland, or was when I was going up there regularly 15/20 years ago.

If this is a crisis I'm going to love the rest of it, pal. I'm enjoying life a lot at present. (My visit to Wigan apart!)

I've been to both of those two. Stayed on the coast near both. Yep, 'bervie is very industrial but just a walk in to Sandwood Bay, one of the most gorgeous landscapes in the Highlands.

I also don't remember hearing Gaelic in FW and I've been there dozens of times when 'doing' the Munros. (Assuming that's what you meant.) I hope to get up there more often when I've retired. (Soon, baby!) I love it. Just not the bloody midges! Do you get an equivalent over there? I seem to remember sandflies in New Zealand but we got eaten alive by mosquitoes when hill walking in the Rockies in Alberta.  

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

Stayed in Fort William after completing the West Highland Way in 2005. I thought it was a bit shabby. The further north you go there though it seems the further they are forgotten and have no investment. Melvich, Brora and others up there are all desperate.

Will be going to Sandwood bay next year Fred, going to hire a camper van for a week and get that walk done!
