5 years ago today the sky was blue and there wasn't a cloud to be seen-today is a mirror image of that day.
It was my youngest lads first game and he has been a season ticket holder ever since.
Thanks for the memories Derek- It was a day I may never see the likes of again.

I've still got the Sportsound podcasts from the Friday night and the Saturday post-match including the David Begg live goal commentary.
The Friday night show is as expected, written-off, all talk of Lennon and Celtic, jokes about caravans on the A9 and other patronising guff about the highlands. Hilarious.

I have 2 ringtones
1-David Beggs commentary of Steven Craigs goal.
2- David Beggs commentary of Jimmy Scotts goal.

Always get funny looks when my phone goes off. Wont change them thoughSmile
Comments like 'Here they are on the verge of cup glory' and ' Ross County are in the final Celtic are humbled in the most incredible result in the 125 years of Scottish cup history' still send a tingle down my spine.
He was a top commentator-really miss listening to him.

They may have beat us a number of times over the last few seasons

But one fact they can't deny, is they have never beaten us at Hampden!

The Ross County heroes that stunned Celtic in 2010: where are they now?
by Stuart Findlay
April 10, 2018, 5:53 pm

Eight years after helping Ross County to one of their most famous victories, we ask where the Staggies stars of 2010 are now

Michael McGovern: The Northern Irish keeper spent two years with County between 2009 and 2011. Spells at Falkirk and Hamilton followed before he rose to prominence at Euro 2016 with a series of impressive performances.

Now plying his trade with Norwich, McGovern has spent the 2017-18 season as backup to young stopper Angus Gunn, son of ex-Aberdeen keeper Bryan.

Gary Miller: The full-back was a key part of the Staggies First Division championship win in 2011-12 before leaving for St Johnstone. Eight years on from the Hampden semi-final win, he is still playing under Derek Adams having been signed by his former gaffer for Plymouth Argyle in 2016.

Scott Morrison: Left back Morrison broke through at his boyhood heroes Aberdeen as a teenager and was capped by Scotland U21s. He made more than 125 appearances for County across four seasons, helping them to the 2011-2012 title before he left for America, playing for Phoenix FC and Arizona United before hanging up his boots in 2016.

Scott Boyd: The Ginger Pele is still a legendary figure in Dingwall, where he spent nine seasons before leaving for Kilmarnock in January 2017. He helped steer the club through two promotions and a League Cup victory, making nearly 300 appearances along the way.

He has been in and out of the Kilmarnock team this season but most of his 11 appearances so far have come since Steve Clarke came in and turned the Ayrshire club’s fortunes around.

Alex Keddie: The Glaswegian defender was a latecomer to professional football when County signed him from Stranraer in 2006. He spent four years there before leaving for Dunfermline in 2010.

After leaving full-time football in 2012, he opened a barber shop with his sister in Glasgow.

Martin Scott: Better known as Jimmy, Scott spent five years at County before departing for Hibs in 2011. He never recaptured his earlier form however and his spell at Easter Road is best remembered for a fracas where he punched teammate Sean Welsh in training, fracturing his cheekbone.

Now on the books of Stenhousemuir, where he is helping their bid to win promotion to League One.

Richard Brittain: The side’s captain and another club legend alongside Boyd and Michael Gardyne. Brittain spent seven seasons in the County side before leaving after an injury-interrupted season in 2014-15.

He had a spell as player-manager of Brora Rangers before returning to a coaching role with the Staggies.

Iain Vigurs: The midfielder is still at the heart of Highland football as he attempts to guide Caley Thistle back to the top flight. Vigurs’ impressive performances for County led to a 2013 move to Motherwell but he returned for a second spell with Inverness in 2015 after struggling with injuries.


Iain Vigurs.
Michael Gardyne: The only player from this team still on County’s books as a player. A highly-rated prospect as he came through the ranks at Celtic, Gardyne arrived at County in 2008 and played a key role in two promotions and a Challenge Cup win, as well as being a thorn in the side of his boyhood team in the semi-final.

A short spell with Dundee United started in 2012 before he re-joined County on loan in 2014 and permanently in 2015, where he has since become the club’s all-time top goalscorer. He remains a key part of the side.

Andrew Barrowman: It never worked out for Barrowman at Caley Thistle but he was a solid player during his second spell with the Staggies. He had earlier set the heather alight with 24 league goals as County bounced back to the second tier in 2007-8.


After leaving Dingwall he endured a difficult spell with Dunfermline – the club were relegated in 2012 and then ended up in administration in 2013 – which ended when he was made redundant.

Spells at Dundee, Livingston, Morton, Dunfermline (again) and Albion Rovers followed before he called time on his playing career in 2016.

He now works as the Scottish brand manager for sportswear firm Joma.

Steven Craig: The big striker scored the all-important breakthrough goal against Celtic and stuck around to help the Staggies clinch promotion to the top flight in 2012. He fell out of favour however and was sent on loan to Partick Thistle and later signed there permanently.

His spell at Firhill was a successful one as he helped the Jags to promotion – and himself to a second successive First Division winners medal – but he was again deemed surplus to requirements. Since then he’s played for Wycombe, Dumbarton and Forfar and the now 37-year-old spent last season with Worcester City in the National League North.

And the subs
Paul Lawson: The midfielder was an injury time sub against the club where he came through the youth ranks. He was a mainstay in the Staggies midfield for six years between 2007 and 2013 before moving to Motherwell.

After two injury-ravaged seasons with the Steelmen he dropped down to the Highland League with Formartine United in 2015 and is now the club’s player-manager, with former Aberdeen captain Russell Anderson – who is also Lawson’s brother-in-law – as his assistant.

Joe Malin: The young keeper was a regular reserve for County but made only 23 appearances across seven seasons with the club. He left in 2012 and has been Brora Rangers’ number one for the past five seasons.

Stuart Kettlewell: After making 37 appearances in his first season with his new club, the ex-Queens Park and Clyde midfielder would have been disappointed to find himself on the bench for such a big occasion but it has to be said that County were not short of good options in the middle of the park at this stage.

His final season as a player with County was blighted by a hip injury before he moved on to Brora Rangers, scoring the winning penalty as they won a league promotion play-off semi-final against Edinburgh City in 2015.

Returning to County as the under-20s manager in 2016, he led his young team to a surprise championship win and alongside Steven Ferguson, is one half of the management duo hoping to keep the Dingwall club in the top league.

Paul Di Giacomo: The winger/striker came on as a sub in the final against Dundee United but was made to watch the entirety of the semi-final win from the sidelines. Having made his name as a youngster with Kilmarnock, Di Giacomo moved to County from Airdrie in 2009, staying for two years and scoring four times in 45 appearances.

A spell with Morton and a return to Airdrie followed and these days Di Giacomo is working as the community manager at his first club Kilmarnock.

Garry Wood: Used mainly as a sub during a two-year stint at County, Wood scored nine times in the 2009-10 season, including a vital equaliser against Hibs in the Scottish Cup quarter-final and a hat-trick in a 9-0 demolition of Stirling in the fourth round.

After leaving in 2011, he scored 25 goals in 112 appearances across three and a half years at Montrose and these days turns out for Formartine United under fellow sub on April 10, 2010 Paul Lawson.
