Ryan Baptie Loan Deal

Peterhead FC have just agreed the loan of defender Ryan Baptie to Edinburgh junior side Linlithgow Rose FC. The ex Inverness Caley Thistle & Hibs player has been farmer out until the 5th October.

Supporters attending Saturdays match versus Dunfermline Athletic may have been aware of an incident in the club car park where a person received emergency medical treatment. A person was reported as having collapsed and following quick action from Peterhead FC officials and the professionalism from Dunfermline Athletics’ Physiotherapist Kenny Murray the person was resuscitated using the clubs defibrillator.

A defibrillator is a portable machine that can diagnose and treat life threatening cardiac conditions through the application of electrical therapy that allows the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.

In 2009 the Scottish Football League funded ‘Fit for Football Fit for Life' campaign, where Peterhead FC along with every other member club in the league were provided with a defibrillator and training in their use, this significantly added to the basic first aid that the club can already provide.

The latest update on the person is that they are responding to treatment and all at Peterhead FC wish them a full and speedy recovery. The Club also wishes to express its gratitude to Dunfermline’s Kenny Murray for all his assistance during the incident.

Scott Ross Incident

Scott Ross has received a 2 game ban after a spitting incident during the match on Sunday versus Rangers.

The PFC board have reviewed the video evidence and spoken with the player. It is clear that Scott did spit in the general direction of Rangers player Nicky Law and Scott admits that he did spit, but it in no way was it intentionally directed towards Nicky Law and is making every effort to speak with Nicky to apologise for the misunderstanding.

Peterhead FC regardless of the circumstances, cannot condone spitting in any way and although we accept Scott’s explanation; he has fallen below the level of behaviour we expect, and has been fined under the clubs disciplinary code of conduct.

£500 - Alex Main (169)

£200 - Steve Brown (5)

£100 - Ryan Riddell (147)

RANGERS 3-0 PETERHEAD

RANGERS 3-0 PETERHEAD

Scottish League Cup – Round 1

02/08/2015

The Blue Toon may have been defeated in their first trip to Ibrox since 2013 but left Glasgow with their heads held high. Jim McInally’s men made a valiant effort to take the game to a superior Rangers team who took advantage of the visitors’ ‘kamikaze’ last throw of the dice.

Both sides went into the game on the back of goal gluts against Brechin and Hibs respectively but it was the Gers who were able to keep up their form in front of goal, with strikes from David Templeton, Kenny Miller and man of the match James Travernier the difference.

The margin of victory could have been more if not for a series of stunning saves from former Ibrox stopper Graeme Smith.

McInally managed the Blue Toon during the 2012/13 campaign which saw the Light Blues drop to the fourth tier of Scottish football, and the Peterhead boss claimed four points in four clashes against McCoist’s men.

But the new-look Gers side proved more dangerous and McInally believes his opponents are now Premiership quality.

After the final whistle he said: “There’s no doubt they’ve improved. But if we’d sat the way we were sitting in the first half it could’ve finished 1-0. I didn’t think they exposed us in the first half.

“Graeme Smith had one or two good saves in the first half but in the second half he was fantastic and if it wasn’t for him it could’ve been another six like they got last week.”

The Balmoor boss praised the travelling Peterhead support, and explained his bold second-half strategy which saw the visitors finish the match with four strikers on the pitch.

He continued: “We certainly made it a more entertaining game for the supporters in the second half because of the kamikaze way we played but as Mark Warburton said, it was a pre-season game and that’s the way I’ll treat it.

“The game wasn’t going to be normal for us. Rangers are probably Premiership standard and it was always going to be tough.”

He added that the trip to Ibrox proved a “difficult day at the office” for his side.

Rangers had more of the ball in the first half but Peterhead’s organised play and impressive goalkeeping kept the tie at 0-0 until the 40th minute.

Then David Templeton side-footed past Smith to put the Light Blues into the lead. The visitors held on until half time before pushing forward in the second half.

In the 53rd minute McInally made the first change of the game, with Jamie Stevenson coming off to be replaced by new boy Leighton McIntosh who looked lively throughout.

The home side then paraded their strength in depth, swapping Nicky Law and goalscorer Templeton with Jason Holt and Ibrox hero Kenny Miller.

Jordon Brown took a knock and was replaced by summer signing Scott Ferris before Rangers’ impressive Barrie McKay made way for Nicky Clark.

Then the game turned when in the 75th minute Travernier crossed for Kenny Miller to jab the ball past Smith and into the bottom corner.

Once again the visitors pushed on and McInally threw on striker Andy Rodgers to replaced the fit-again Jamie Redman.

But the bold throw of the dice proved to no avail and left back Travernier sealed the result when he found himself in space on the right hand side of the box and curled around Smithy into the far corner.

Peterhead: Graeme Smith, Nathan Blockley, Steven Noble, Ryan Strachan, Scott Ross, Kevin Dzierzawski, Jamie Stevenson, Jamie Redman, Rory McAllister, Shane Sutherland, Jordon Brown.

He said "It was our first game and a good workout. We got a lot from it, but the main thing is the fitness.

In terms of the season ahead, McInally is setting his sights high. 

"If you're in something you have to try to win it," he concluded. "If you come up short, that's life, but I think we're in a good place."

We are delighted to have secured the signing of ex Elgin City striker Shane Sutherland on a 1 year contract with the Bloo Toon. Jim McInally tried to sign Shane last season and was in need of an extra forward. Jim said "I have been chasing Shane to sign for Peterhead for a while now and I am delighted that he has now put pen to paper on a 1 year contract. It gives us great options up front together with Rory McAllister and Andy Rodgers." 

The ex Inverness Caledonian Thistle striker further bolsters the Bloo Toon squad as we move into the 2015/16 season with the play-off places as our aim.
