Sat 30th July – Fraserburgh 3 Strathspey 0

Fraserburgh took the spoils against Strathspey and got off to the best possible start in this season’s Highland League.

The win gives the Broch a great confidence boost going into the campaign. However, for Strathspey, it’s back to the drawing board for manager Brian Grant.

It was a dream comeback for youngster Marc Lawrence, who re-joined the Broch on-loan from Peterhead this week and it only took 65 seconds for him to score on his return.

Dean Cowie’s drilled free-kick was spilled by Thistle goalkeeper Michael MacCallum and Lawrence fired home from close range.

The home side had a great opportunity minutes after the opening goal when Aidan Combe got on the end of a Marc Dickson through-ball, however he could only poke his effort into MacCallum’s hands.

Mid-way through the half Lawrence had a chance to double his and Fraserburgh’s tally after he got on the end of a lovely flick by Greg Buchan, but his shot was saved excellently by the Strathspey goalkeeper.

The closest the visitors came to scoring was a 30-yard effort from James McShane that went narrowly wide of Paul Leask’s goal.

New signing Buchan had to go off for the Broch, but the experienced William West took his place and made an immediate impact. Two minutes after coming on, the substitute found the net when he got on the end of a Ryan Cowie free-kick and sent a glancing header goal-bound, which beat MacCallum.

The home side seemed to take their foot off the gas a little in the second half, which manager Mark Cowie was unhappy about. Despite not creating as many opportunities as they did in the first half the Broch still went close to adding to their tally with the combination of a Ryan Cowie delivery and a West header.

With minutes left in the match substitute Grant Noble made it 3-0 to Fraserburgh with a dipping effort from the edge of the box going over MacCallum.
