Wick Academy supporters can expect to see more of striker Liam Bremner as the Highland League season progresses.

The North Caledonian League player of the year came off the bench as a trialist in Saturday's 1-0 win against Keith.

“Liam was diagnosed with quite a serious groin injury and he is starting to feel a little bit better now," manager Gary Manson said after the game.

"Whether he is fit for a full 90 minutes – probably not. But hopefully we'll build him up as the weeks go by and we'll see a lot more of him moving forward.

“You could see from that little cameo, he will be an asset for us. We'll see what happens.

“Hopefully we'll see a bit more of him now that he's getting a bit fitter."

Bremner was top scorer in the North Caledonian League in 2021/22 while playing for Golspie Sutherland.

Another trialist on Saturday was Toby Macleod, who featured in the starting line-up after travelling over from Orkney. He played for 71 minutes before being replaced by Bremner.

Manson said: “He is someone that we got made aware of playing for his team in Orkney, Stromness Athletic. He played for the Orkney county team as well.

“We've been made aware of him all summer, really, so today was the ideal chance to get him in, get a look at him and just get a chat with him as well to see what he wants to do.

“He looked maybe slightly nervous in the first half but I thought he did well for getting thrown straight in from the start, his first Highland League experience. I thought he had a good, solid display.”
