2022-23 Breedon Highland League fixtures released: Champions Fraserburgh start at home to Deveronvale

The fixtures for the 2022-23 Breedon Highland League season have been released.
The fixtures for the 2022-23 Breedon Highland League season have been released.

Fraserburgh manager Mark Cowie is relishing trying to defend the Breedon Highland League title following the release of the 2022-23 fixtures.

The Broch will start their title defence against Deveronvale at Bellslea on July 23.

After that the Buchan side will take on Buckie Thistle – who were second last term – at Victoria Park on July 30.

Boss Cowie said: “We knew we would be starting at home and unfurling the flag, so it’s good to be at home.

“But regardless of who you play, it’s all about how you approach games and how you handle games.

“You can look and go ‘that game’s easier and that game’s harder’ but every team has had a break and every team will be well-prepared so it won’t be easy.

“There will be a busy schedule at the start of the season. We’re in the League Cup, the Challenge Cup and the Aberdeenshire competitions as well as the league.

‘Good start important’

“We’ll need everyone in the squad, but it’s an exciting time and we’ll be raring to go.

“Getting off to a good start is always important, you don’t want to be chasing early on.

“But every team will have a blip or a sticky patch at some point.

“It’s important to get off to a good start, but everyone will be saying the same.

“There will be eight or nine teams who will think they can win the title and no game is easy.

“We saw that last season and dropped points at home that people maybe didn’t expect – there’s never been any easy games in the Highland League.

Fraserburgh manager Mark Cowie is looking forward to the start of the Highland League season now the fixtures have been released.

“We’re pleased to be starting at home, but Deveronvale will determined to start their season with a win at Bellslea, so we’ll need to be up for it.

“Buckie away on the second weekend is a tasty game and you’ve got to play everyone at some point.

“There are a lot of big games over the course of the season, but the biggest one for us right now is Deveronvale.”

Elsewhere on the opening day, Highland League new boys Banks o’ Dee will face Nairn County at Spain Park.

Buckie host Wick Academy at Victoria Park, Keith entertain Brora Rangers at Kynoch Park and Brechin City welcome Rothes to Glebe Park.

Turriff United tackle Huntly in an Aberdeenshire derby at the Haughs, Formartine United make the trip to Lossiemouth, Clachnacuddin are at home to Inverurie Locos and Strathspey Thistle meet Forres Mechanics at Seafield Park.
