Just had a look on their fan forum. Didn't know Wyness had signed for them. Should be a decent match.

Heading with RedCard as well. Top Six, I think you should join us. Will wear the new Paul Sheerin charity t-shirt (if it arrives on time).

Think the Thunderton is now called the Granary, Belhaven pub like Exchange and Auctioneers.

Elgin also have a few ex ICT lads, although I understand Barry Wilson is no longer their

Thunderton (Thunderdome/Thunderbum etc etc) is under new management and isn't as good as it used to be. They will be serving lunches pre match, so expect a family atmosphere where more people will be there to eat rather than drink.

The Granary is about 20 yards away from the Thunderton and is indeed a chain pub. Again at that time of the day it will be families in here having lunch and like the Smith and Jones pub is overpriced and devoid of character.

I'm still dithering on whether to head through, but the pubs I'd visit would be the Wetherspoons (Muckle Cross) as it's cheap and has a good choice of continental and local ales. Note* stay away from the Ionic across the road...

I'd then either head straight to the Elgin City Social club in the stadium or have a quick visit to the White Horse on the high street for a game of darts, pool and £1 in the surprisingly good jukebox. The Vic is also good for real ales usually, so that'd be a post match visit; before heading to home.

As far as I'm aware Barry is still at Elgin as player/coach. I'd imagine his playing time will be a lot less than previous considering he must be 39 now. I noticed he played right back last season. Dennis Wyness has also signed for them.

As far as I am aware hes still there as player/assistant manager and was playing as sweeper towards the end of last season and did so in the play off games. Jamie Duff is also there.
