Elgin 4 Strathspey Thistle 1

 

Elgin City strolled to a 4-1 victory over Strathspey Thistle in their opening round of The North of Scotland cup in a game which saw Striker Craig Gunn score his first hat-trick of the season.

 

Gunn’s first goal came on the tenth minute when a Brian Cameron pass saw Gordon Findlayson in behind the jags defence. He then cut the ball back for Gunn for a simple tap in. In a game of few clear-cut chances, Gunn found a second goal when a misplaced Thistle pass let him in one on one with the ‘keeper and the Elgin man made no mistake.

After half time Elgin found their rhythm again with Gunn hitting both the side netting and crossbar. But Gunn bagged his hat-trick in the 55 minute. A long Daniel Moore cross set the hitman up perfectly at the back post to volley home. Shane Sutherland made it 4-0 then in the dying moments of the game when a lapse of concentration from sub ‘keeper Stewart Black saw him miss a simple back pass which rolled over the line.  

 

Thistle manager Brian Grant had this to say. “The loss didn’t surprise me, Elgin are a much better side. They are stronger and fitter. We tried to keep it 0-0 as long as possible but the inevitable eventually happened.” The Strathy boss then discussed the season ahead, “ We want to finish as high as possible. If we could maintain our last league position and get more points on the board we’d be happy.”
