Forres prove the upper crust.

CELTIC may stand top of the Scottish Premier League and swept into the last 16 of the Champions League, but they have been left trailing in one competition by Highland League side Forres Mechanics.

Forres have beaten off the claims of 47 other teams at all levels to win Scottish football's best pies in a contest organised by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders.

Forres chairman James Anderson, said: "Our fans love to enjoy a pie at a match and we are delighted to hear that ours is the best in the land."

The club's pies are made by Murdoch Brothers in the town and the firm's Ronnie Murdoch said: "It is a huge honour for us. To receive this recognition for our Forres football pie is the highest praise."

Celtic didn't go away empty-handed, though, picking up gold awards with St Mirren, Falkirk and Fraserburgh.
