  1. tm4tj - he farmed at Balnastraid by Duthil in the 60s/70s so Carrbridge would have been local Welfare side. Also played for the Fluke post Highland League. I never saw him play apart from family picnics but believe "absolute rock" sounds about right. His uncle Scot Symon wanted him at Rangers in the 50s but he opted to stick to farming and Highland League football. Scarlet - Roshie/Stootie chronology as above. Both great players I believe. A wee bit before my time unfortunately.
  2. My Uncle David was laid to rest today. A great family man and absolute gentleman who was, we believe, the only player to have captained all three Inverness sides. He also managed Caley in the early 70s and Clach in the late eighties. Was nice to see Billy Urquhart, Davie Milroy and Roshie Fraser at the service today (apologies to other football folk I may have missed). I know the family will have appreciated their attendance and the great send off he was given by family and friends from near and far. RIP Uncle David
  3. Morton sure to be greetin' about a second trip to the Arctic North in a week. Ayr pull the plum European tie in the U-wafer Cup.
  4. Bohs, Waterford or Wrexham away please. Nearest we're going to get to European football for the foreseeable.

    John Beaton

    Very sad news. Was a huge figure in Inverness football over the years. Used to come into my work when I was still at school/uni and was always good craic. Recall the classic "Fat John, Skinny John's Barmy Army" chant back in the day celebrating the ground breaking Beaton/Docherty co-management duo. RIP.

    New ICT Podcast

    Good effort gents. Hats off to your levels of recall, I can barely remember being at half the games I attended last season. Looking forward to future episodes.
  7. I see former ICT loanee Tom Aldred has signed for Brisbane Roar after ending his loan spell at Motherwell. Given he freaked out at how far Inverness was from home in Bolton I'm just wondering if his agent has sat him down and explained where Brisbane is....?
  8. Yer Man In Stoney nailing it again with the exclusives. Never mind the fact I didn't have a scooby who it was we were signing. Available for a weekly Courier column at the right price..... 😎
  9. I understand we will announce a new signing on Wednesday. No idea who it is but comes from a reliable source that a deal has been done for someone or other.
  10. Would be a great idea to get some sort of link-up with Augsburg as part of the 25th Anniversary celebrations. I recall my cousin playing for an Inverness select against Celtic, Augsburg and a 4th club which escapes me (possibly Dunfermline) back in the early 80s in a 2 day tournament at the Bught Park. I'm sure I've still got the programme in my loft. Was always a bit puzzled why nothing more tangible ever came of the Augsburg connection. Seems like loads of towns and village in Moray and Buchan are twinned with German towns and the relationship seems much more active than ours is with Augsburg. Having said that the apathy I witnessed around our last international friendly against Antwerp would suggest there wouldn't be a huge level of interest. The Belgians took a very decent away support to Le Stade and probably out numbered those of us in the home end. Unfortunately I'm not convinced Augsburg would be much different.

    League Cup Draw

    Mantis - was hoping for Cove away too but Peterhead away is now a doddle on my beloved AWPR. Virtually a home match for the Stonehaven Massive. Roll on United, Dundee and Arbroath away. Alas, there'll be an infrequent CaleyAway presence from us next season due to Saturday afternoon juvenile football commitments. Forza Stoney Youth....
  12. An absolutely dreadful first half performance today. Things improved after the break despite rather odd substitutions. Felt a bit backs to the wall when Tremarco limped off leaving us with only 10 men for last 15 minutes. A good three points but we will need to see a vast improvement to make progress in the play-offs. One point I would make is that Robbo should be using up all his jambo brownie points to get Dario Zanatta in on loan next season. I lost count of the number of times he skinned Rooney today. Think he'd be an excellent addition to the squad.
  13. No worries. Looks like a nice gaff.
  14. Hate watching us on the tele but a tremendous 3 points. Barca-esque winner from Doran and Walsh. Going up via play-offs and a 2nd Scottsh Cup win in 5 seasons would constitute a decent enough season. 😉
