Game: Alness United FC U17 v St Duthus FC U17 (Ross-shire Youth League)
Date: Friday, May 25th, 2018
Venue: Alness Academy Park, Alness
Referee: Barry Stuart
A TRIP to Alness awaits this coming Friday evening, as St Duthus U17s look to cause an upset against the pacesetters in this season's COPC Ross-shire Youth League, Alness United.
The Saints have been preparing well following their last game a fortnight ago, in the Jewson Shield semi final at home to Wester Ross. No fewer than 22 players reported for duty at training in midweek, giving the coaches some food for thought ahead of Friday's game and a selection dilemma with so many committed offerings on display.
A win over Alness would certainly give the Saints a boost going into the second half of the season - but they will be under no illusions of the task ahead. Tommy Regan's Alness have been dominant so far this season, having won both of their league matches and also capturing the Jewson Shield just last week, beating Wester Ross in the final. It would be a feather in the cap indeed for St Duthus if they could be the first team to topple United in 2018.
