Fraserburgh Football Club chairman Finlay Noble has spoken to the Fraserburgh Herald about last weekend’s Wick Academy-Fraserburgh match.

Speaking to the Herald, Finlay Noble expressed his disappointment that the Broch side were unable to secure a draw against the Wick side.

Fraserburgh were beaten 3-2 as Wick Academy secured a home side win at Harmsworth Park.

John Chalmers converted the first penalty for the visitors on 20 minutes, but Academy roared back into the game scoring two goals in as many minutes through Richard Macadie and Davie Allan.

Another penalty converted by Chalmers drew the scores level just before the hour mark and set up a grandstand finish, resulting in a 3-2 win for the Wick side.

Commenting, Finlay Noble said: “It was disappointing that we didn’t get a draw.

“We battled hard enough but we haven’t been playing as well as we have been. We deserved a draw.

“We were disappointed with how the match ended and the disputed penalty. But you’ve got to live with these things, as hard as it is. You’ve just got to take it on the chin.”

“It’s a difficult place to go and if we’d come away with a 2-2 draw we would have been happy enough with that,” he added.

The Fraserburgh chairman added that there were no injuries during the match.
