After Saturday’s win over Elgin City we are on the road on Tuesday night when we meet Fraserburgh in the opening round of the SPFL Trust Trophy at Bellslea Park with a 7.30 p.m. in what is only our second successive competitive meeting with the Broch and their debut in the tournament.

Back in 1974 on 5th January, Fraserburgh travelled to Central Park in the Scottish Cup for our first ever Sunday game and were on the end of a 4-1 defeat. Our scorers were Billy Laing (2), Robin Thomson and Davie Ross. Hunter got the Broch goal at 2-0, while Ray Allan made a trademark penalty save from Bowie.

The most recent meeting of the sides came on 22nd July 2001 when we ran drew 1-1 at Bellslea Park in a pre- season friendly having beaten Buckie Thistle the previous afternoon. Craig Young put us ahead but Michael Stephen equalised for the Broch.

Last season saw the Broch declared runner up in the Highland League with just three games played with maximum points. Unfortunately for them, despite beating Fort William 13-1, Brora Rangers scored four more goals and were declared champions and put forward for the Pyramid play off where they lost to Kelty Hearts.

This season Fraserburgh are in a similar position after three league games with maximum points squeezed in between leaders Buckie Thistle and Brechin City.

The league campaign opened with a 3-0 home win over Formartine United, which was followed up with a 4-0 win over Fort William, officially an away game the match was played at Bellslea Park. On Saturday they came back from being two goals down to beat champions Brora Rangers 6-2 also at Bellslea Park.
