Saturday 18th October saw unbeaten Aberdeenshire travel to Orkney fulfil their Caledonia regional League Division 1 fixture sponsored by R Clouston Builders. The away team desperate to maintain their magnificent start to the season and Orkney intent on keeping this seasons unbeaten home record intact. The sizeable crowd that gathered at the Pickaquoy Centre pitch on a cold windswept day knew that this was not a day for the faint of heart and so it would prove over the course of eighty tense, fascinating minutes. Ultimately the strong wind blowing straight down the pitch towards the peedie sea would prove a telling factor. The team that used the wind effectively would be the likely winner.
