Inverness City v Bridge of Don Thistle

2pm  4 June 2016

SJFA North Region, Super League
Inverness City 3 Bridge of Don Thistle 0 (att 24)

I don't need much of an excuse to spend a weekend in the Highland capital, and with few games to choose from in early June it was an easy decision to pick this fixture, especially as Inverness City are reportedly having problems with the local council over extending the lease on their fledgling home ground.

Hopefully they'll reach agreement and continue to be able to play at Lister Park. The club have worked hard, and presumably spent money, to enclose an area of Bught Park and turn into an acceptable, if basic, junior football venue.

Portable buildings on one side of the pitch provide changing rooms, there's dugouts, a railed-off pitch, complete with advertising boards, and the while ground is fenced off from the rest of the park. The shinty stadium next door is far grander, but in this part of the world shinty attracts bigger crowds than non League football.

Inverness City and Bridge of Don Thistle had little to play for, but Junior games are usually competitive, and although City won comfortably this wasn't a bad game. The home side were 2-0 up early on, and left it until stoppage time at the end of the game before getting their third.
