Six of the best for Turra

Turriff United won the Morrison Motors (Turriff) Aberdeenshire Shield for the second time, and in an emphatic style as they convincingly got the better of a young ten man Cove Rangers side at Harlaw Park, Inverurie

Kevin Tindal went into this game with the clear intention of ensuring his key players for the League decider at Formartine United on Saturday were not to be risked, but it was a side with much first team experience, Stirling Smith, Roddy Black, Ritchie Singer, Jamie Beagrie, Jordan Leyden and Ryan Stott all looking to push to be in Saturday’s line up.

 

However their plans were dealt a severe blow in the fourth minute. Former Deveronvale men Singer and Gary McGowan appeared to clash with each other in centre midfield. It was a very quick exchange but ref Graham Beaton obviously saw it as Singer being the main offender and he was immediately red carded

Turriff settled well on the ball following the sending off, spraying their passes around and they went ahead in 13 minutes. Robbie Allan powered in the shot racing forward from his left back role. Young keeper Timmy Capstick did well to parry the ball, but couldn’t hold it. Nick Gray went on the prowl but the ball found itself landing for James Brownie who carefully chipped Capstick to make it 1-0

Gary McGowan was well up for this encounter and four minutes later he waltzed in from the right by-line, Capstick saving from an acute angle and six minutes on, Capstick was again the saviour as “Magoo” made another attempt to sneak the ball in at the near post.

Turriff were dominating, and their young opponents looked shellshocked to be down to ten so early and they were denied a second when Nick Gray had a goal disallowed, seemingly a push along the way but it looked harsh.

Lewis Davidson lobbed over the crossbar in 36 minutes but it was 2-0 in 39 minutes, Robbie Allan powering on the corner from the left, big centre back Ross Anderson heading home at the back post. What a great shout from “Sanders” it was his ball to head as soon as the ball was flighted

Half-Time: Turriff United 2-0 Cove Rangers

It was 3-0 in 51 minutes, McGowan again causing trouble and from his centred ball from the left, sub Max Berton knocked the ball into his own net under pressure from advancing right back Lewis Davidson.

Max Berton partially made amends in 65 minutes netting in style from a similar position to Leigh Griffiths' goal in the Edinburgh derby. It took a deflection along the way but the youngster was rightly credited following a powerful strike.

Within seconds however, Turriff regained their three-goal advantage. Gary Harris, such a prolific scorer all season, was not on target tonight but he released Lewis Davidson on the right by-line, and his low cross was inch perfect for Nick Gray to fire into the roof of the net. 

Capstick was unfortunate in 71 minutes, his handling had generally been good but he couldn’t hold Brownie’s shot and Ritchie Ligertwood pounced to make it five.

Gary McGowan then rounded off a great personal display and team performance with an exquisite curler into the top corner and there were further chances for more goals but on the night Turriff had deservedly won the game in style. How their supporters celebrated and a first silverware for Messrs Simpson and Duthie as co-managers. Another great day in the history of Turriff Utd FC.
