Bobby, Gary and Edwin and the team
Tomatin Utd players old and young took part in their annual end of season challenge match on Saturday at Raigbeg. The game was very entertaining for the local supporters who turned up to cheer on both sides.
The final cup campaign of the season got underway on Friday evening with Tomatin Utd travelling to Cromdale to take on Grantown Utd. Both teams were under strength but still produced an entertaining match. Tomatin found themselves behind in the first minute for the second game running as Grantown opened the scoring through young Fraser Greenlees. As he managed to slip past Alan Bartlett and knock the ball in low past Garry Stuart.
It was second place against third tonight at Aviemore as RBL welcomed Tomatin to the 4G pitch.
The game got off to an explosive start with the home team scoring within the first minute. It came from a harmless through ball which Jamie Edwards was in control off but his weak back pass to young stand in keeper Duncan was woefully short allowing Rory McKinnon the easiest of chances to round the goalie and walk the ball into the net.
