  • Weekly News Roundup 8/5

    We bring you a later than usual weekly news roundup, after a busier than usual week.<br /><br />Tain Thistle have reached the League Cup final for the second year in a row thanks to two excellent cup performances in the early rounds. Fourteen goals in two games saw the Jags run out 6-2 winners over neighbouring rivals Inver before thrashing Cromarty by 8 goals to 1 at their Victoria Park home in the semi final. Hat-tricks for Darran Goller and Martyn Farquhar along the way, as well as two braces for Andy Durrand has given Thistle supporters much to be excited about in the goalscoring front.<br /><br />The cup final will be played this Saturday, May 14th with a 3pm kick off Balintore's lower park, and is sponsored by Highland Heatsave.<br /><br />Either side of the cup ties, Thistle kicked off their league campaign with a good performance but a disappointing result against Inver at Portmahomack. Despite taking a 2-0 lead, the Jags eventually had to settle for a draw in what turned out to be a heated affair. The point leaves both Inver and Tain Thistle mid table, with Balintore, Social Club and Ross-shire Club all recording wins.<br /><br />Training will resume tomorrow after its cancellation last week, scheduled to take place at 7pm at the Links.<br /><br />Fundraising wise, the club wishes to thank DH Munro for their sponsorship this past week, and thanks also go to Balblair Distillery for their kind donation of a raffle prize. Their continued support is greatly appreciated.<br /><br />The next poker fundraiser is expected to take place on Tuesday, May 17th. As ever, interested parties should contact the club in advance to participate.<br /><br />The club are currently looking for volunteers to sell scratchcards during the current season. If anyone is interested in helping the club with fundraising, please contact a member of the current committee.<br /><br />And finally, on a lovely news note, congratulations go to Thistle striker Mark Reid and his other half Claire, who became parents today. Congratulations Mark and Claire!
