To be honest I don’t know where to start.. The Can Cans have always been my Highland League club, and had always wanted to see a match, so I thought it would be good for it to form part of my 60th birthday celebrations.

From the moment we arrived we were treated as if we good friends, from the gentleman on the door, the Chairman, and George made us feel at home. After a look behind the scenes we went upstairs for our meal, served by Lisa (sorry if I’ve got her name wrong) and her ladies which was fantastic Also a big thank you to  Dougie/Donny (sorry I just cant remember) who ensured we never went thirsty 😊.

After the match the fun continued, we met so many people who were willing to give up their time to chat with us (once again I cant remember the names), and meeting some of the players helped to make the day very special. The only sad part of the day was that my eldest son Craig, who would have been part of the group, sadly passed away last year. He would have loved the day, but we did raise a toast to him on more than one occasion.

Here are a couple of comments for members of my group:-

‘Fantastic day, Made to feel so welcome by everyone there. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was great, drinks flowed. Lovely, lovely people’

‘The chairman and all of the staff at Forres Mechanics FC we so attentive and kind we left feeling nothing but love for the club’

Thank you Forres Mechanics
