  • Thistle dump the Blacksmiths

    Tain Thistle took care of the visiting Blacksmiths FC, from the Inverness & District Amateur league, with ease in a 3-1 win at Grant Park today, without moving out of second gear.<br /><br />In goal once again was Barry Nimmons, with a back four of Dave MacGruer, Scott Innes, Martyn Farquhar and Stuart Ross.<br /><br />The midfield was comprised of Michael Brand, Vinnie Wood, Arron Christie and Colin Burry with forwards Daniel Christie and Greig Mitchell on hand up front. In a last minute switch, Thistle winger Darran Goller was drafted to the Blacksmiths side to play a full 90 minutes.<br /><br />Blacksmiths stunned the North Caledonian side with an early goal through their pacey forward Charlie Fawnban, but it wasn't long before the Tain side pulled a goal back. A goalmouth scramble saw Greig Mitchell notch his second goal of the pre-season, leveling the scores at 1-1.<br /><br />Thistle went in at half time 2-1 ahead, thanks to a confident long range effort from midfield workhorse Michael Brand. The candidate for player of the year took advantage of a clever layoff from new signing, centre half Scottie Innes.<br /><br />In the lead, the Grant Park men struggled to make their domination count further, as several chances went begging. But in the latter stages of the game Arron Christie had a clear opportunity to add to his pre-season tally, but the ball made its way across the face of goal for substitute Dickie Durrand to make it 3-1.
