Anderson follows other prospects into Clach first team
Brian Macleod’s youthful overhaul at Clachnacuddin continued at Forres Mechanics last Saturday as James Anderson made his first team debut.
The 17-year-old was called into action when Ryan MacKenzie was forced off with a head injury that left him needing seven stitches.
But according to the Lilywhites boss, Anderson nearly made his senior bow the previous week.
“He was actually unlucky, he was just about to make his debut last week against Inverurie at 2-1 down, then we equalised so I had to tell him to sit back down,” Macleod recalled.
“I think he was a bit gutted.
“James has been excellent for the under-20s, he’s showed a lot of promise and has been scoring goals.
“He’s still a young boy, he’s only 17, he’s still got a lot to learn. I think he’s got a lot of potential."
