A GAME TO REMEMBER
For this weeks game to remember we take you back to the first ever match between the teams. It took place on the 10th of August 1999 in the Scottish Challenge Cup. Inverness CT won the match 1-0 thanks to an 88th minute Mike Teasdale goal. The attendance on the day was 1334.
The teams were as follows:
INVERNESS CT: Fridge, Mann, Tokely, Hastings, Golabek, Teasdale, Christie, McCulloch, Sheerin, Stewart, McLean. Subs- Robson, Shearer, Glancy.
ST MIRREN: Roy, McLaughlin, Turner, Baltacha, Nicolson, Murray, Drew, Kerr, McGarry, Brown, Yardley. Subs- Mendes, Lavety, Ross.
The referee was Garry Mitchell and there were no bookings on the day. Three Inverness players still play for the club (inc Golabek) and there is one who is now the manager of the club.
FACTS BETWEEN THE TEAMS
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ All League meetings between the teams have taken place in the First Division so far apart from three.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Inverness CT have won all cup meetings between the sides.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Inverness CTÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Paul Ritchie is the top scorer in the fixture with 8 goals. Next is Dennis Wyness with 7.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ St MirrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s top scorer in the fixture is Yardley with 3.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ The biggest win in the fixture was when Inverness CT won 5-0 on 6/5/2000. McCulloch got 2, with Xausa, Wilson and Bavidge all getting one goal.
Dennis Wyness, after being out since January, has recovered from his surgery and is likely to feature at some point in the match hopefully. It will be good to see him back in the squad and hopefully will be raring to go next season.
Last game of the season, sorry the preview is short, I am in the middle of exams at the moment.
