Match report
Caledonian Thistle's Scottish League debut resulted in a tremendous performance and a fine victory.

In the opening minutes Caley Thistle 'keeper Mark McRitchie had to look sharp to save a 15 yard drive from John Reilly.

In 13 minutes Mark McAllister won a corner and Alan Hercher headed in Graeme Bennett's kick to score Caley Thistle's first ever Scottish League goal. It was not long before he also scored the second and third!

Before that Arbroath came close on two occasions -the first when a John Brock header went inches past the post and the second when a 25 yard free kick almost found the net.

John Scott and Mike Andrew had chances for the home side before Alan Hercher again wrote his name into the record books. In 31 minutes he shot home his second goal through a ruck of players then headed home another corner in 33 minutes.

In the second half Arbroath came back into it and scored through Brock and Reilly - Caley Thistle bounced back and scored twice more.

In 71 minutes Paul McKenzie latched onto a long McRitchie clearance and lobbed over the ‘keeper then Wilson Robertson completed the scoring six minutes later with a high ball from 22 yards.

This rounded off an exciting match and an historic occasion for both the club and Inverness.
