Fort net six in friendly match at In­ver­gor­don af­ter Clag­gan Park fails pitch in­spec­tion

The Oban Times - - Sport -

FORT Wil­liam’s home game last Satur­day against Fraser­burgh was called off af­ter a pitch insp-sec­tion found Clag­gan Park to be wa­ter­logged.

The Lochaber side will be hop­ing the weather re­lents in time for their next High­land League fix­ture, away to Clach­nacud­din on Satur­day Jan­uary 30. With the Fraser­burgh match post­poned, man­ager Ally Ewen took the op­por­tu­nity to give his play­ers some much-needed game time in a friendly match against In­ver­gor­don FC.

Af­ter an even first half, Glenn Fell thun­dered home a stun­ning 20-yard drive to give the Fort the lead at the in­ter­val.

In­ver­gor­don equalised at the start of the se­cond half through Michael Grimes and this seemed to spur the vis­i­tors into ac­tion. Stefan MacRitchie re­stored the Fort’s lead al­most im­me­di­ately, and this was fol­lowed by strikes from Richard Tawse (2), Dar­ren Quigg and Scott Chisholm. There were some good Fort per­for­mances, in par­tic­u­lar Tawse, who was only de­nied a hat-trick by a bril­liant save from the In­ver­gor­don keeper. Man­ager Ewen said: ‘We would like to thank In­ver­gor­don for the game. They gave a good ac­count of them­selves and made life dif­fi­cult for us at times.’
