Reports for Highland League games on Saturday 22nd November

Brora Rangers 7 Deveronvale 0

Brora Rangers moved onto 50 points from just 18 games in the Scottish Highland Football League with a thumping 7-0 victory over Deveronvale.

Three goals in a four-minute spell gave champions Brora an excellent start at Dudgeon Park. Scott Graham fired them in front and only two minutes later it was two-nil with the goal coming from wide man Dale Gillespie. Top scorer Steven Mackay got in on the act with number three for Brora on 21 minutes.

Andrew Greig made it four in the 35th minute and Mackay scored his second and Brora's fifth three minutes before the break, making it five-nil to the home side and surely clinching all three points. 

Just to make sure there was no glimmer of a comeback Steve Mackay completed his hat trick early in the second half leaving Andrew Greig to complete the scoring.
 
Clach 1 Buckie Thistle 6

Buckie Thistle romped to a 6-1 victory over Clachnacuddin just a week after the 2-1 loss to Fort William lead to the departure of manager Gary Hake from the club. 

After a stodgy start to the game Liam Baxter took advantage of some space at the far post to head home the opener from close range but Blair Lawrie drilled home a leveller from the edge of the box to restore parity just over 60 seconds later.

Matchday live - Full-times Sat 22nd Nov

An incredible finale at Harmsworth Park saw Turriff United score twice in little over a minute to clinch victory in a seven goal thriller between the two teams chasing title favourites Brora Rangers.  Goals from Aaron McKenna and Gary Harris won a game that had swung from 2-1 to Turriff to 3-2 to Wick in an enthralling second half.

In contrast the Cattachs cantered past Deveronvale, going 5-0 up in the first half before running out 7-0 winners with Steven Mackay grabbing another treble. Inverurie Locos went one better with an 8 goal haul in Grantown with Martin Laing grabbing the limelight with four goals in seven minutes.  Fraserburgh got

Brora Rangers v. Deveronvale

Brora surged to the top of the table with a seven-goal crushing of Strathspey in midweek and will look to continue their imperious form at home to Deveronvale. 

Vale will be no pushovers and they ran Wick very close at Princess Royal last week. They are still without Scott Fraser, Scott Henry, Kevin Adams, Jamie Wilmshurst and Zander Jack through injury, Craig Simpson is suspended and Stuart Leslie missing through work commitments. Liam Forbes and Connor Rennie return to the squad and Sean Keith could make his debut for the Banff side.

Huntly order up a Shandy

Huntly have today completed the loan signing of 23 year old forward Aaron Shand on a two month loan deal from Turriff United. Having seen his side only score four goals in all competition since the start of October, Huntly Assistant Manager Steven Dolan admitted they needed to strengthen their attacking options.

“Aaron is a proven goal scorer, he scored at Buckie and Turriff and that’s what we need justnow and I’m pleased it’s gone through in time to get him in the squad for Saturday’s game at Lossiemouth. You can see by the league table we’ve not scored much and the other teams have scored more than us, but I thought against Fraserburgh midweek we created some good chances and at some point things will take a turn for us.”

Shand made the transfer to Buckie Thistle in the summer of 2012 after featuring for Newmachar and netted 4 times in 30 appearances for the Jags. One year on he returned to his former side only to move on to Turriff United in September of last year where he has featured 46 times scoring 8 goals.

Clachnacuddin 0 Nairn County 2

Nairn County secured their first win at Grant Street Park since 2005 with a comfortable victory over the hosts. Clach lost their third consecutive game while Nairn bounced back from the weekend, where they lost to Formartine.

The game got off to a fiery start as the early stages lived up to the derby expectations with both teams not afraid to put a foot in or put their bodies on the line. Nairn threatened within the first five minutes when a looping ball in found the head of Conor Gethins who headed just wide of the target.
