Buckie Thistle 2-0 Huntly

Buckie signed off their Highland League campaign on a high by beating Huntly.

The hosts took the lead in the seventh minute after a cross from Chris Angus was turned into his own goal by Black and Golds trialist Connor Brian.


Sayings Special: Nine-man Nairn lose at Lossie

Nairn County manager Les Fridge insisted that his side did enough even with nine men to get something out of the game they lost 2-1 at Lossiemouth.

The County boss also admitted that he had no complaints about the sending off of Alan Pollock, but couldn’t see why Michael Morrison was awarded a red card. Both players were dismissed for violent conduct.

Pollock walked for lashing out at Ryan Farquhar, while Morrison was adjudged to have elbowed Willie Mathers.

Fridge said: “I have no problems with the first sending off. I thought Alan Pollock had raised his hand which was very stupid and it will be dealt with.


Striker Gauld leaves Locos for Formartine

Neil Gauld has left Inverurie Locos and signed for Highland League rivals Formartine United.

The striker was out of contract at Harlaw Park and has penned a two-year deal with Kris Hunter’s side.

Former Fraserburgh manager Hunter took over at Formartine at the end of last month and will be reshaping his squad over the summer.

Gauld is the first of the new arrivals who will be playing for the Pitmedden club next season.

Hunter said: “We are delighted to get Neil. He is one of the targets I identified when I first came into the job.

“He’s one of the players we will be bringing to the club and there will be further announcements to come.”

Locos co-manager Scott Buchan said he offered Gauld a new contract, but ultimately the forward decided to move to Formartine.

The Harlaw Park boss believes with the likes of Martin Bavidge, Jordan Leyden and David Ross at the club, he still has good options up front.

Buchan said: “Time will tell as to how big a loss Neil will be.
