Wed 27th July – Locos 1 Formartine 2

One of the first games in the calendar saw local rivals Inverurie and Formartine battle it out to see who would face Fraserburgh in the next round of the Aberdeenshire Cup.

The encounter was full of controversial decisions and challenges which you would expect from a derby, with United progressing through to face the cup holders, Fraserburgh.

Within the first minute Locos took the lead. A Neil McLean corner found the head of Stephen Jeffery, who sent the ball into the net. However, the visiting players and fans were livid as they believed the ex-Formartine centre half fouled keeper Andy Reid.

United didn’t let that get to them and equalised mid-way through the first half. Keiran Adams was seen to be blocking the run of Neil Gauld, who was trying capitalise on the short pass back from Colin Charlesworth and referee Alex Shepard awarded a spot-kick.

Paul Lawson took the resulting penalty and the ball found the net despite a hand from Locos keeper Scott Mathieson.

Minutes after the equaliser, Inverurie had an excellent chance to go back into lead. Martin Laing went on a run which included a nutmeg on the veteran Derek Young, however Reid came out quick and saved the midfielder’s effort with his feet.

Formartine came out for the second half a completely different team, which was led by winger Scott Barbour.

Barbour terrorised the Locos defence, winning many fouls, with the most important coming on the edge of the box, which resulted in a yellow card for Ross Anderson.

From 20 yards out Barbour took the free-kick and placed the ball into the right side of the goal. The ball travelled with minimal power but was placed well enough to beat Mathieson in the net.

From then on United controlled the game, giving up no clear-cut chances and creating a few for themselves, including Conor Gethins hitting the bar with a free-kick.
