Fort William v Newtonmore - MacTavish Cup
Report by The Strathy
The Champions were not on league duty, instead they were battling for a place in the second round of the MacTavish Cup after the previous weekends tie had been postphoned. They won 2-0 at Fort William thanks to goals from Iain Robinson in the 15th minute and Glen Mackintosh in the 62nd minute.
Newtonmore Manager PJ reflected after the victory at An Aird: "Now that the lads are training outdoors I've seen a big improvement in their hitting which was evident against Fort William. We're still not asking enough questions of the opposing keeper, but I'm confident that will come". He singled out his side's young goalscorer for praise: "I am pleased with the progress that Iain Robinson has made to become an integral part of the first team squad".
