Potentially a bit of an odd situation coming up in the Aberdeenshire Cup...

Aaron Reid (scored a hat-trick) and Adam Emslie played in the game on Wednesday against Keith which saw us progress to the semi-finals of the competition.

Both players are currently on loan at Formartine.

Our opponents in the semi-final will be Formartine or Inverurie Locos.

They'll be cup-tied, won't they?

Does this buy into the rumour another keeper is coming in

Not necessarily, we needed him here first half of the season as we had to name 3 keepers in our UEFA squad. I actually thought he'd have gone on loan during the Jan window so given the timing maybe it does buy into the rumour.

Bavidge's hat-trick from the other week. Clinical finish, then wins penalty and scores it in emphatic style, then steals the ball and scores the third. Good to see him thriving in mens football and banging in a hattrick in the Scotland U19s. Hopefully can push for a place in the team next season.

Really unique technique with the penalty

I like it

Cannot see the club operating with only two keepers until the end of the season. Hopefully someone coming in from the free agent list. We cannot finish the season with one out of form keeper and another who appears not to be rated by the club.

Find it strange that the club think it is good for the football club not to have a team in the reserve league but are happy to loan our young talent out to Highland or lower league teams. Would have made more sense to play in the reserve league and allow our own young players to develop alongside our experienced players who are not starting regularly in the first team. At present how can we keep the likes of Doohan, MacDonald etc match fit ?

Reserve football would allow this to happen and would not allow the development of our loaned out players to be dependant on coaches from other clubs.

A confident lad, like it. Not sure what the big no6 for Edinburgh City was thinking of for the 3rd goal.

This is going to get a bit depressing if every year our most talented youngsters get poached at 15/16 and we never get to see them in the first team.

Used to be it was the occasional one, now that's Pirie last year and Carroll this year. 

Brexit bonus because English clubs can't nick the best talent from the continent anymore?

In this climate we'd never have seen Ramsay or McKenna play for the Dons, or got the fees we did.
