First Team Debuts

Milestones

Caley Thistle were well beaten by a very good Forfar side who are set to go on and win the Division Three championship.

Their hero was highly-rated David Bingham who scored three goals including a penalty.

Mann opened the scoring for Forfar in 21 minutes with a fine header and just before half time Bingham scored his first - a header from a McPhee corner.

Early in the second half Bingham was again in the right place to sweep home a Morgan cross.

Caley Thistle tried to come back but their only success was a John Scott penalty goal in the 85th minute. In the closing minutes McCormick was felled in the box and Bingham completed his hat trick from the spot.
