Buckie thrashed Strathspey 9-0 to win the Highland League title.

Chris Angus scored four times, John McLeod hit a hat-trick, while there were goals for Kevin Fraser and Stuart Taylor.

Buckie manager Graeme Stewart believes this could be the first title of many for his squad.

He said: “My remit at the beginning of the season was to get in the top four. We have probably over-achieved to some degree. But after a few games I could tell that the team was pretty special.

“I think we have won in style. A lot of the neutrals like us because we score goals and are entertaining. It was 9-0, but it could have been 12 or 15. We had a lot of chances. We are a nice team to watch.

“I said at half-time, don’t let it peter out because I wanted 10. We got nine and will take that.

“I said to the players before the game, I think this team can go on to win many titles, if they stick to their beliefs – they don’t take their foot off the gas, they are not happy with their lot and they go and get it again.

“All we have done is won one. We have got to win the next one.”

Buckie now face Lowland League winners East Kilbride in the first stage of the League Two promotion playoffs.

The first leg is at Victoria Park on Saturday. The return is in East Kilbride seven days later.

Stewart said: “I’ve not even thought about it. People have asked me and I’ve told them to forget about it. On Monday I’ll have a look at it. I am looking forward to it. It’s a challenge and that’s why we are in football. We will be going out to win.”

The winners of the Highland/Lowland play-off will play the bottom side from League Two over two legs on May 13 and 20.
