Clach captain Gordon Morrison has hit the goal trail early in the new campaign.
The attacker got the new season off to a flying start with a brilliantly taken hat-trick in the Lilywhites’ 3-0 win at Wick Academy on Saturday and he is in the mood for more.
The 35-year-old Inverness-based senior fire officer said: “I didn’t expect us to go up to Wick last weekend and come away with a 3-0 victory, especially as Academy must have been on a high after beating Brora Rangers in the North of Scotland Cup the previous Wednesday night.
“When you get unexpected results you just take them in your stride. I’ve never scored a hat-trick in the opening game of the season but you get games like these when you get a wee bit of luck on your side, so we’re certainly not going to get carried away.
“We went to Wick as underdogs.
“If you beat them home or away any time in the season you would class it a great result, but it’s a bigger achievement after their midweek cup success against Brora Rangers.”
The former Highland League player of the year added: “We have quite a strong team this season, a good mix of youngsters who are full of running and one or two older heads, like myself, who have a fair bit of experience.
“Wick should have been one or two goals up after their first-half performance but we reorganised at the break, we got our shape back, changed the system and we went on to play some really good stuff and score three goals.
“To come away with a 3-0 win at Wick is the stuff of dreams.”
