Formartine United have completed the signing of former Elgin City and Inverness Caley Thistle goalkeeper John Calder on a two-year contract.
The player announced his move on his Facebook page at the weekend, prior to Monday's entertaining 3-3 draw against Dyce Juniors in which Mark Smith, Callum Bagshaw and Daniel Park were on target to give United a 3-1 lead before Dyce hit back.
On the same night Inverurie Locos beat Maud 2-0 courtesy of two Neil Gauld goals. Fraserburgh - who have extended the contract of Neil Main for another two years - beat Cruden Bay 2-1 and a 2-0 win for Keith away to Ellon United.
Tuesday's action saw Huntly fight back through two Andrzej Kleczkowski goals to draw 2-2 with Islavale, with Forres Mechanics defeating Deveronside 6-0. PMAC North Region First Division champions New Elgin battled out a 2-2 draw with Strathspey Thistle.
