22 May 2009

That’s the message from die hard supporter and MSP David Stewart ahead of Inverness Caley Thistle’s crucial game with Falkirk.
He’s calling on the Highland Council to fly an ICT flag from the Town House during Saturdays game.
Caley Thistle need to take at least a point to secure their place in the Scottish Premier League and the Highlands and Islands MSP is urging the all of the local community to do their part to back the side.
Mr Stewart said: “This is much more than another game of football, its about preserving the status of the game in the
Highlands and Islands.
“Having a top flight club in the Highlands provides a huge boost to the local communities and
economies when visiting sides come to Inverness.
“I’m urging the Highland Council to use our city landmarks to show their backing for the team.
“Caley Thistle flags have flown from the top of the Town House after victories over Celtic in the Scottish Cup.
“If we secure our status in the Scottish Premier League, that will certainly be something to celebrate and worthy of marking in this way.
Mr Stewart added: “It’ll be stressful afternoon, but when the tough gets tough, the tough gets going.
“Our players need look no further then Terry Butcher as a role model who epitomised courage, dedication and leadership as a player.
“I believe that the Caley Thistle fans will be the secret weapon, cheering every kick of the ball.
“At the final whistle, I’m convinced that we will have a team of heroes who deserve their own chapter in the history of the club.”
George Fraser, Chairman of ICT said: “This is an excellent idea and I’m fully behind David Stewart’s plans for the whole of Inverness and the wider Highlands to get behind the team on Saturday. ”
