Wednesday 5th October – Fraserburgh 3 Deveronvale 0

Fraserburgh defeated Deveronvale as Mark Cowie’s side scored three free-kicks, with three different goal scorers.

Three very different set-pieces were the only difference between the two sides, as they battled in a fairly close affair.

Vale thought they should have taken the lead, but referee Graham Beaton never allowed Liam Forbes’ effort to stand.

The victory leaves the Bellslea side fifth, only two points away from Formartine who sit above them in the Highland League standings.

Meanwhile, the defeat leaves Steve Dolan’s men fourth from bottom, with only 10 points.

Broch boss Mark Cowie said: “Were always dangerous from dead balls.

“I never thought we were in any danger of ever losing the game. But the clean sheet is a bonus for us after some of the stupid goals we have conceded in recent weeks.”

Vale boss Steve Dolan said: “I don’t think there was much between the two teams, just three free-kicks.

“They never created much in open play. I thought our back four was really good.”

The Vale players were furious after Forbes’ side-footed effort was ruled out by the referee with only five minutes on the clock.

There wasn’t much between the two sides. But in the last minute of the first half Graham Johnston hit a curling free-kick that missed every attacker and defender, and found its way into the bottom-right corner of the net.

The home side doubled their lead early in the second half after Greg Buchan was fouled 25 yards out. Ryan Cowie hit the resulting free-kick into the right side of the net. Vale keeper James Blanchard got a hand to the ball, but not enough to keep it out.

Late on, Fraserburgh added to their tally, again through a free-kick. Dean Cowie’s thunderous effort was rifled high into the top-left corner. Blanchard got a touch on the ball, but the sheer power of the strike took it into the net.

Next up for the home side is a long trip north to Wick on Saturday. Cowie said: “Wick are always a dangerous side.”

Meanwhile, Vale have to get ready for the visit of league leaders Buckie in a local derby on Saturday.
