Lovat 5 – 1 Caberfeidh

Another competitive pre- season game against Caberfeidh at a cold Balgate on Saturday.

After a slow start, but some good forward play Lovat took the early lead only for Cabers to equalise and gain the ascendancy before the break. In the second half, after a number of changes by both sides, and some sustained Lovat pressure, Gregg converted his second and third goals, and further good  strikes from Euan and Martin led to a final score of 5-1.
In difficult conditions, this was a decent hard fought game by both sides.
Next week, pre-season concludes with an away match with Willie MacRae’s Skye for the Thomas Ferguson Memorial Cup.

The second team take on Caberfeidh, in Fraser Gallacher’s first game in charge.

Lovat 1-1 Lochaber

This turned out to be a very usefull, hard pre-season game- just the sort of competitive match we were looking for. I thought the team competed well after a slowish start and put Lochaber under a fair amount of pressure in the second half.

We managed to give all the substitutes a run out, and it was especialy nice to see Fraser back on the pitch after illness and injury.

Still some hard work and practice to be done,before were ready for the start of the season- but were getting there.

Thanks to Michael and his Lochaber team and all the best for the coming season, although from what we saw of them yesterday they wont need much luck! and should be competing for the league.
