fort william

Recommended Posts

as football fans we might bemoan our lot at times. but just for a moment rejoice in one of those i was there moments . fort william the butt off many jokes but show real fortitude to keep going week after week and suffering 10 -0 defeats as the norm . . finally after 4 years and 73 games got that elusive pot off gold beating nairn county 5-2 in the north off scotland cup . probably with the help off the 9 caley thistle loannees they have this season . after striking a sponsership deal with the club maybe its increased their wages bill as they only pay their players 20 00 a week 

its a lovely story and shows hurdles can be overcome. and lets spare a thought too for the dedicated 30 or so fans that turn up weekly to support the club knowing their not going to see their team win but stick with them through thin and thinner . the one thing they do have going for them is where claggen park is situated . has to be one off the most stunning backdrops in football at the  base off ben  nevis  anyway well done the fort . maybe they can dream off getting that first league win and have a season where yes they finish bottom off the highland league . but will no longer bear the title off britains worst football team up the fort
