Better still, here is a report from www.highlandleague.net

Young Caley Jags book final berth

Inverness Caley Thistle will face Nairn County on either Saturday Sepotember 20th or Sunday September 21st in the ITP Solutions North of Scotland Cup final as the youngsters collected their third consecutive clean sheet to see off Wick Academy at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium.

The home team were the first to threaten with former Elgin City loanster Zander Sutherland scampering down the wing and producing a fine cross which was met by Shane Sutherland, but his header from eight yards flew over the bar.

Wick's first shot on came in the 19th minute, Gary Farquhar striking a Craig Shearer lay off towards goal but it never troubled the young Caley Jags keeper. However it was Inverness side that were looking the likelier to score. Shaun Carrol shot wide from a Shane Sutherland lay off then Dale Gillespie fired a 25 yard range finder straight at Don Macmillan.

The opener came in the 36th minute, and it was a cracking strike from one of the North's top young talents. Midfielder Dale Gillespie let fly from all of 30 yards and the ball zipped past keeper Don Macmillan to the keeper's right.

Wick responded positively and two minutes later Richard Macadie cut in from the left and fired a 20 yard effort at goal, but Kyle Allison made a comfortable save. At the other end Don Macmillan had to look lively to deny Shaun Carrol, diving to his right to make the save.

On the stroke of half time some neat passing involving Richard Macadie and Gary Farquhar saw the former strike a shot over the bar to leave the score 1-0 at the break. On the hour mark a swift break up the field saw Gary Weir play in Nigel Mackenzie but a great blocking tackle prevented his shot from testing Kyle Allison in the Caley Jags nets.

At the other end left back Graham Shinnie was denied by a fine save from Don Macmillan, the former Ross County keeper palming the ball round the post for a corner, however it was the post that was to deny sub Nick Ross who cracked a 25 yarder towards the bottom corner.

One minute into injury time the home team booked their place in the final when Shaun Carrol was on hand to slot the ball home from close ranger to set the seal on the result.

Full Time: Inverness Caley Thistle 2 Wick Academy 0
