A strong second-half showing from Brora saw them beat Fort William to advance to the Scottish Cup second round.
The hosts led at the break thanks to a good finish from Danny Highet, only for the Cattachs to hit back after the restart and score four goals.
Brora player-manager Grant Munro was pleased with the performance of his players after the interval.
He said: “Fort William thoroughly deserved their lead at half-time. We asked for something more from the boys in the second half and they...
Keeper Joe Malin was the hero for Brora as they lifted the Breedon Aggregates Highland League Cup for the first time in the club’s history.
The goalie played through the pain barrier in his first game since picking up a medial ligament injury to his right knee in the quarter-final win over Formartine on Saturday 5th March.
Malin made some great saves in Saturday’s final at Grant Street Park in Inverness and then when the game went to a shoot-out after a goal-less 120 minutes, managed to stop a...
A late Steven Mackay goal stopped Formartine from heading to the top of the table after a closely contested affair at North Lodge Park.
A draw left Brora still at the summit with 75 points after 30 games played. Formartine are up to second on goal difference with 73 points from 29 matches after Cove’s fixture at Fort William was postponed.
Cove stay on 73 points, but with only 28 games played. This result sets up a huge game at Harlaw Park a week on Wednesday, when Cove host Formartine, which to...
Brora’s replacement keeper John McLeod stole the headlines as he saved Neil Gauld’s penalty in the shootout after a 10-goal thriller at North Lodge Park.
The visitors took the lead in the Highland League Cup quarter-final through Paul Brindle early on, but mid-way through the first half Formartine equalised after Scott Barbour put the ball on a plate for Graeme Rodger to head home the equaliser.
That leveller didn’t affect Brora and the visitors got two quick-fire goals through Colin...
Brora Rangers put in a clinical display to make sure a hard-working Turriff United’s 2016 started with a 3-1 defeat to the league leaders. A double from Paul Brindle and a goal from Grant Munro earned Richard Britain’s side a victory in front of the Press and Journal camera. A penalty converted nicely by Artjoms Kuznecovs couldn’t prevent the hosts from losing this game.
The first real chance of the half arrived for Brora’s Brindle who turned on six pence and struck a powerful shot goalwards,...
Brora Rangers overcame dogged resistance from Strathspey Thistle to take the three points. This win moved Brora above Formartine to second in the Highland League table behind leaders Cove Rangers, whose win at Pitmedden was their 12th consecutive league victory.
Brora found it difficult to break through the two rows of four that Strathspey put in front of them. However, both managers thought Brora played well. As Thistle’s Brian Grant said: “We didn’t really get to grips with Brora, they shift...
Turriff United and Brora Rangers were 3rd and 4th respectively in the Highland League table before today’s match at Dudgeon Park and they couldn’t be separated when the final whistle blew.
Given that Brora played for over 50 minutes with 10 men after centre back Colin Williamson received a 2nd yellow card 5 minutes before half, Brora player-manager Richie Brittain was happier with a point than his opposite number Ross Jack.
The Brora boss said, “It was a big point for us today, especially...
Keith gave Brora Rangers their stiffest league test yet and it took a while for the champions to impose their usual level of authority on the match.
Keith manager Gordon Winton said that although he was disappointed not to get anything from the game he was pleased by the team’s performance and effort.
Brora boss Ritchie Brittain commented: “In the first half we were not at the levels I expected and I told them so at half-time. We did improve in the second half and made a lot of chances.”
Brora turn on the style of Champions
Brora Rangers were presented with their Champions flag before starting their home campaign, and they certainly unfurled an ominous warning to the rest of the Highland League that it will be no easy task to wrestle the crown from Dudgeon Park with an 11 goal haul.
They were at their imperious best with a hugely impressive team performance of slick one touch passing, fast and inventive play down the middle and on both flanks that simply swept Rothes aside.
Brora unlucky to exit Petrofac Training Cup at first hurdle
Brora Rangers will feel hard done by to have exited the Petrofac Cup at Dudgeon Park this afternoon to a solitary strike by big Alloa striker Geoff Mitchell shortly after half time.
The goal galvanised Brora who came back strongly and were agonisingly close to equalising on several occasions but the leveller wouldn’t come.
Brora started with 3 centre backs and the opening exchanges were mainly neat passing in midfield with little...
