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?

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.

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.

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!

Don't miss the superbly situated camping / caravan site right on the coast at Scourie, just slightly south of there, Ian. The sea breezes usually keep the 'wee beasties' away.

Just been reading their Facebook page and it seems the manager is starting to lose it with everyone that writes a sarky comment.
"I'll be at training on Monday, come down and see me personally about it"
"Trainings on Monday. If you think you can do better then come see me"
"Think you can do better? Bring your boots and I'll come on here and comment on you"

I know it's a a two hour drive but why doesn't an established team like ICT loan them a few under 21s? It reads like they're playing an under 16s team in the equivalent of Northern counties league

Which basically means they will finish the season on minus points!

Inverurie (sp) video their games and stick them on YouTube. I watched the Fort William game and there's so much I could work on.
There's no basic shape from the off and with their results that's the first thing you work on. I know in the past they've suffered training wise with Inverness based players only travelling on match days but this season they're all local and at training.

Fair play to the Loco Works players though. They stop celebrating scoring after 4. It's too easy for them.
Biggest cheer is when the FW keeper makes a great penalty double save

Supposidly Portree could only raise a team of 10 school kids hence the 35-0 result, they chose that option rather than face a fine and points deduction for not fulfilling the fixture.
