Broch crash to heavy end-of season defeat

Clachnacuddin finished their season in style clinching a Top 10 slot after coming from behind to Fraserburgh and making it a miserable final day of action for the Buchan side.

Zac Conway scored the first of the game’s ten goals. Despite wearing the No 3 shirt the youngster followed a long ball through the centre. Colin Williamson let the ball run through to Stevie Dunn but the veteran custodian didn’t come for it and Conway capitalised.

Scott Barbour came close to adding to the score when he held off the challenge of Williamson on the left and connected with the post from 12 yards while at the other end Sam Urquhart turned to face Jonathan Dunbar but couldn’t beat him.

Paul Brindle equalised in 21 minutes. He got the final flick on an Allan Pollock’s cross to beat Dunbar, the little glance doing the trick.

Five minutes later Sam Urquhart put his side ahead when he found himself unchallenged in the middle of the box to head home. Urquhart is good in the air and the Brocjh players gave him licence to do the business.

Scott Barbour equalised right after the resumption. The game’s second punished short passback was latched on to by the nippy No 11.

However any hopes that Kris Hunter had of seeing his side go on from there were dashed.

Allan Pollock got on the scoresheet after playing a neat 1-2 with Scott Graham and finding the net with the help of the woodwork. Nine minutes later Paul Brindle got his second, a low cross from Urquhart and the young striker amazingly was allowed to run in unchallenged to finish.

The strikers were by now running riot and with the goals coming more often than buses the attending public were getting their money’s worth. Urquhart claimed the next one, finding the necessary touch on the goal line after Scott Graham had hit the ball in from an acute angle.

Urquhart com pleted his hat trick, following a ball down the left, trapping the ball in style and finding the net with a little deflection off a defender.

Scott Graham rounded it all off for the home team picking out the bottom corner while as the final whistle was looming Mark Cowie netted nothing less than a mere consolation goal from six yards.

A disappointing season finish for Fraserburgh.

Manager Kris Hunter has said that he will be looking to recruit more players next season.
