For the second time in a year Matthew Wright, of Ross County, faced his old team mate, Dòmhnall Alex Morrison who plays for Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Also turning out in Ross County’s colours was the imposing figure of Josh Smith, who was invited to Dingwall to play as a trialist.


The under-seventeen derby which always attracts a lot of interest was watched by Inverness Caley manager John Robertson and his entire coaching staff. Recently appointed Ross County manager, Owen Coyle, was also in attendance.


The game began with the enthusiasm and passion that is a feature of all derby matches. Within twenty minutes Inverness Caley were a goal to the good, following a penalty award. At half-time the Inverness team was leading by three goals. The second half was dominated by the boys from Inverness Caley and were comfortable winners, with the match finishing Inverness Caley 7 Ross County 0.


Whilst the Inverness Caley first team is having a less than favourable start to the season – last weekend every junior Inverness side beat Ross County at all age levels; from the under-11s through to the under-17 match which featured three sons of Lewis.
