On the 16th July a team of Ex-Buckie Thistle players will don the green and white hoops once again to play in a match against a team of Gordon Highlander veterans.

This match is the start of a series of events in the North East of Scotland organised by the Gordon Highlanders to enhance their heritage, educate the public with the history of the regiment and in particular to commemorate the 19 Victoria Cross recipients. The celebrations will culminate in a Regimental Parade through Buckie on the 29th July 2017.

The Ex Buckie Thistle team will be as follows:

Graeme Stewart, Stephen Bruce, Scott Taylor, Darren Strong, Paul Lamberton, Colin Milne, Frannie Moore, Ryan Green, Paul Davidson, Matty Gairns, Levi Stephen, Mark Holmes, Mark Wood, James Matty, Andy Matty, Jamie Shewan, Joe Wood, Robbie Nicol, Graeme Tallis, David Pirie, Raymond Cardno, Micky MacPherson and Paul Darcy.

The Gordon Highlanders are bringing a team of 16 players along and both teams will be relieved to know that rolling subs will apply throughout the full 90 min match scheduled to kick off at 12.00noon.

The senior Squad will also have a Pre-Season match at 3.00pm against Glentanar FC.

We hope you can come along, show your support to the Gordon Highlanders, Catch up with some Ex- players and have a great day out…
