Broch beat Brora


A whirlwind of a month has seen both Fraserburgh Football Club and the supporters club boosted ahead of Saturday’s Aberdeenshire Cup final against Formartine United.

Last weekend, Fraserburgh made the trip to Brora Rangers, picking up all three points as player of the year candidate Scott Barbour bagged a brace en route to a 3-0 victory.

His first was netted before half-time, slipping past Brora’s Alex Lamb to roll the ball into the goalmouth.

Enthused by the youngsters performance, the Broch came to life and sent Brora into the break two goals down, Graham Johnston picking up the Broch’s second with a placed header that inched inside of the post.

Brora looked to have found themselves in the interval, coming back with some purchase on the game in the second half, but Broch ‘keeper Paul Leask was to deny any chance the home side had of finding a goal, marshalling his defence into a fine display.

A missed penalty by Brora added to their misery, summing up what had been a terrible day at the office, before Barbour was again on hand to find himself in a scoring position to notch Fraserburgh’s third.

Elsewhere, at home, it was announced that Nemesis Leisure Group, which operates the Crown, would continue their support of the Fraserburgh Football Club Supporter’s Club with a donation of £300.

Fraserburgh and district councillor Brian Topping, who is also the chairperson of the supporters club, accepted the cheque from the owner of Nemesis Leisure Group, John Wemyss, before expressing his thanks to the Crown for their continued support of the supporters club.

The bus for the Aberdeenshire Cup final will leave the Harbour Office at 12:30pm on Saturday, September 15.
