    ICT 2-0 HIBS - Reserve game

    Basking in sunshine akin to the Caribbean, around 100 fans bathed in the heat wave, picnics in abundance and bikini's of all colours shapes and sizes on display. An interested array of managers also looked on, Brew and Patti of course, with Alex Rae, Kevin Drinkell, Neale Cooper and ex ICT leader John Robertson taking in the wares on offer. But I digress, on to the main ingredient, the game itself. An early chance for Hibs saw Zibi save with his legs from close in. Hart then had a shot blocked at the other end for a fruitless corner. After about seven minutes, Zibi effortlessly plucked an 18 yard shot out of the air, and two or three minutes later, Hibs did 'score' but the effort was ruled offside. Zibi seems better with his legs than his hands as he blocked another brisk shot from the angle of the six yard box with his shins, decent save this. Twenty minutes gone and Rory did some good hold up play after beating the defender, played the ball inwards to Hart but his low shot skidded just wide of the keepers right hand post. Some slack play all round as the bobbly pitch started to get the better of both sides. After twenty five minutes, Rory deservedly won a free kick in an encouraging position, but alas, Barry curled his effort into the keeper’s left hand side net, but the wrong side of the post. Half an hour gone and Watt started a decent move after a strong challenge deep in his own half, he surged forward before feeding Barry who shipped it on to Hart, but the shot was well blocked by the back tracking Hibees defenders. Hibs next to threaten when a free header from eight yards centre of goal was not powerful enough to beat a well positioned Zibi. Hibs number 8 was impressing in the first half and a good run and lay off from him resulted in one of the forwards curling a shot a yard too high. Next to show for ICT was Hart, but his final piece of action in his thrust through the Hibs defence saw him swipe at fresh air almost, and the ball eventually trundled towards the Hibs keeper. Good showing from Zibi Watt and Hart in the first half with Hibs having the sharper movement, but poor finishing from both sides evident. Half time picnics taken and still the afternoon sun blazing down, the teams returned to the fray and continued where they left off. Hibs first to attack but Zibi easily plucked the ball out of the air, like picking cherries for the ex Hibee. Another 'goal' for Hibs when Zibi was allegedly unfairly challenged twenty five yards from his goals and the ball was prodded home, but the ref gave a belated free kick to ICT. Regular reservist Richie Hart tried his luck again with a volley from 25 yards and forced the Hibs keeper to dive low to his right to save. About the hour mark, Deano came on for Martin Jack, who worked away without really threatening. Corner ensued for ICT who were beginning to get to grips with the slicker Hibees, and ball headed on to Patti, whose header was flicked wide. Centre half Bayne made not his first gaff in the box, but no takers for Hibs as the ball was cleared. A couple of minutes later, Hart shot over after decent three man move and Zibi then had to dive to his right as Hibs swiftly countered and shot goalward from right side of box about ten yards out. The game came bursting into life as the sunbathers were treated to a storming last twenty minutes with Rory shooting goalward but the keeper saving comfortably. Vigurs then burst forward but his shot was blocked. The action was coming faster than the shorthand from the reporter and a Hart corner and Watt header failed to break the deadlock, Hibs again countering quickly and a good step-over resulted in a shot deflected for a corner. Seventy five minutes gone and another strikers challenge from Bayne as he unceremoniously upended the impressive Mutumba. From the free kick Hibs effort was saved at the second attempt by Zibi as he blocked the rebound. Seconds after a Hart free kick was cleared, the ball landed at his feet and like a true Brazillian, he curled the ball with the outside of his boot to the unmarked Rory on the keepers right edge of the six yard box, he brought the ball under control, rounded the keeper and slid the ball home from six yards, a well taken goal and an impeccable cross from Hart............or maybe it was a badly sliced shot that landed lucky for Rory, anyhow, good finish from Rory. Hibs almost replied straight away but shot wide and had another close attempt a minute later. The sun-scorched crowd were just commenting on how disappointed Mixu must have been with his wee brother Markus, when out of the lengthening dark shadows on the left wing, he cut across the face of the box and struck a low right footer curling away from the diving keeper into his right hand side. Another good goal as unexpected as it was. Kerr fired in a low drive that whistled just wide as Hibs wilted in the afternoon haze. Patti was suddenly enjoying this and he dropped his shoulders to body swerve a couple of defenders but Hart again failed to trouble the scorers. Hibs were now demoralised and no doubt wondered how their slick play brought no rewards and an industrious ICT picked up all three points. Dale Gillespie just back from representing Scotland and playing against Dutch league players from Feyenoord, had a solid game playing in an unfamiliar role at right back. Pick of the ICT bunch were Zibi, Watt and Hart, with Rory and Patti taking their goals well. Deano played but nothing happened for him to make the visiting managers sit up and take notice. Barry was ineffective and Patti well shackled before coming to life. Bayne at centre back.... leave it out, too many mistimed tackles, but he also did a fair bit of clearances, although Watt was the one holding the back line firm. Kerr played at left back and did ok as well and Vigurs played deep left middle in the Roy McBain invisible man role. The sun was just dipping behind the distant snow capped hills as the teams left the pitch, the fans now able to take their hands down from their tanned faces to applaud the victors from the field, a hard fought victory but eventually deserved despite the ball being in the Inverness net three times. TM4TJ Man of the Match goes to Zibi, but Hart can once again be proud of his effort and Watt must be looking to stay as he put in a decent performance. Mutumba impressed for the visitors and McCann and Stevenson also showed up well. Sorry, no team lines available.
  3. As part of the ICT25 celebrations, club historian and Supporters Trust Member Ian Broadfoot was invited to write a book detailing the highlights of the club's remarkable 25year history. Ian has lovingly embarked upon the task and has produced 'Milestones and Memories", a wonderful book packed full of facts and memories. The plan was that the book would be published for the start of last season. However, publishing the book requires the printing costs to be paid up front, and much as the club want the book published, there were other calls on the club's ready cash. These financial difficulties have since been seriously exacerbated by Covid-19. The Board of the Supporters Trust have seen the book as an electronic copy and feel it is an important book for the club and supporters alike. We approached the club to see what we could do to help get the book published and the outcome is that, if we can help raise the printing costs, the club will promote and sell the book through the club shop. We are therefore now launching a fundraising campaign with a view to getting the book published in the Autumn. Our aim is to raise sufficient money in the next 4 weeks to cover the printing costs. We will do this through a combination of paid pre-orders and donations. If we raise sufficient money, to get the book to print, then with a good marketing campaign there is potential to make a significant and much needed profit for the club. Donations as well as pre-orders are urgently needed because pre-orders alone are unlikely to be sufficient to fund the printing costs. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go directly to the club. Ian is not being paid for nor is he receiving any commission from the book. So what makes this book so special? Milestones and Memories is a lavishly illustrated book of A4 size and over 300 pages. It starts with a list of all the significant events in the club's history together with illustrations of tickets and programmes etc from some of these occasions. It goes on to feature some of the most memorable games and features the recollections of many of the players who helped to make these occasions so special. In the longest section of the book, Ian takes us on a journey back in time and details the highlights and main facts of every one of the club's first 25 seasons. There are then sections featuring the 25 players who have made the most appearances for the club and then our 25 top goal scorers. There are sections on the club's managers who have played such an important role in the club's success. The book then goes behind the scenes to celebrate those who have worked for the club either on the Board or as staff and volunteers. There is a section on the youth programme and the community department. Finally, appendices list all the squad players and a wealth of statistics for the anoraks amongst us. All of this is supported by over 500 colour photos and quotes from many of the people involved. This is a very accessible book with wide appeal for all ICT fans. For those who have travelled all or some of the 25 year journey with the club, "Milestones and Memories" provides a wonderful nostalgic trip down memory lane and is sure to bring back many happy memories. No doubt it will be used for years to come as the authoritative source of information in settling arguments about all things ICT! For younger readers and newer fans the book will be a real eye opener about the success the club has had. The book brings to life just what it means to fans of a small club like ours to enjoy those special occasions. Make no mistake, the Coronavirus crisis threatens the viability of the club. The club has lost significant income from the lack of games and it is harder than ever to get commercial support as local businesses themselves struggle to stay afloat. The club will also face significant extra costs when football restarts due to the additional measures required to keep people safe. The club needs the support of the fans more now than ever. You can help by making a donation towards the printing costs and/or pre-ordering the book online via the Club shop. The more of the printing costs which can be raised from donations the more profit the club will get from the sale of the book. Each donation serves a dual purpose; it helps to get this important book published and it puts much needed money into the club's coffers. Donations of £20 or more will be acknowledged in the book, but if you wish to remain anonymous the form will allow you to indicate your wish. The cost of pre-orders is £20 per copy if collected from the club shop or £25 inc P&P within the UK. All pre-ordered copies will be personally dedicated by the author if required. If you want any further information such as postage costs outside the UK, please phone the club shop on 01463 222880. Please note that in the event of us not raising sufficient funds to allow the book to go to print, all money for donations and pre-orders will be refunded. We appreciate that the Coranavirus crisis is affecting individuals as well as businesses and therefore some people reading this will not feel able to make a donation or buy a copy of the book. But there is a way everyone can help. Please, please, please tell friends, family and colleagues who have any kind of interest in ICT about this campaign. As well as the die-hard fans, we particularly need to reach the folk who rarely if ever go to games or access ICT related social media but who still think of Caley Thistle as their team. A final point is that the club will benefit from the sale of the book in less tangible ways than simply profit. The book will stir up memories and remind people how important a successful football team can be to a community. Flicking through the pages will inspire many folk to go to a few more games or buy club merchandise from the shop. Perhaps for some it will represent the start of being a regular supporter for the next 25 years! The fundraising campaign is scheduled to end on 27th September. So please act now. Make a donation, place an order and tell other people about this. With your help, the club can enjoy another great 25 years of milestones and memories. With many thanks in anticipation of your support DONATION LINK : https://shop.ictfc.com/product/donations-for-milestones-memories-book PRE-ORDER LINK : https://shop.ictfc.com/product/pre-order-milestones-memories-book

  5. CaleyD made a comment on this thread that made me think of a long running thread on a Toronto FC board i post on that shows "scarves around the world" where supporters try to outdo each other with all sorts of odd, exotic or famous places to take a picture of their club scarves .... there are places as diverse as the Sahara desert to the bottom of Lake Ontario (taken by a diver) as well as numerous famous football grounds like Barca, Madrid, Wembley etc and even someone who took a pic at LOCH NESS ! Have YOU taken a pic of you and your ICT scarf/flag/top in some famous or exotic places? (Dingwall doesnt count). Care to share? just attach the pic to this thread or link to it if it is somewhere online.... [to add a pic, just make sure you are in full editor mode and use the attach file option at the bottom of the editor then click 'attach this file'. When uploaded click 'add to post' and it should be loaded up (there is a size limit for each pic added so try to stick to JPG or PNG that are no bigger than around 1200 on the long edge and use these types rather than gif, tiff or especially bmp ... If you want to add a pic thats already online, just use the picture icon in the middle of the bottom row of editor buttons and provide the link.]
  6. Dear Mr Cameron, As I'm sure you are aware, with the impending liquidation of Rangers FC not too far away and the highly likely prospect that you and the other chairman of the remaining SPL clubs will vote on the matter as to whether to allow a "NewCo Rangers" to join the SPL. As you know, the fans are almost completely of the opinion that a NewCo Rangers, should they be allowed to join the league system, should start at the bottom of the ladder in the Third Division, just as the newly formed Caledonian Thistle FC had to do back in 1994. Mr Cameron, vote for the wishes of the fans. Vote for dignity. Vote for justice. Vote against an organisation that has exploited sectarianism and bigotry for it's own gain. Vote against a NewCO of a club that has stolen millions to buy itself success. Vote for you to be seen as a man and ICT as a club, who said NO. Mr Cameron, vote NO to NewCo. Yours sincerely, Renegade ICT Season Ticket Holder
