Brechin City booked their place in the final of the Chuck McGowan Cup with a convincing 3-0 victory against Dundee United SC. Goals from Tom Marwood and Sam Rogerson had the visitors two up at the break, with Rogerson adding a second in the second half to secure the victory.
The visitors got off to the perfect start, as Tom Marwood fired them ahead inside three minutes. The winger was given too much time and space inside the DUSC box, and slammed the ball past goalkeeper Lennon Mitchell.
DUSC were struggling to get going as Brechin continued to press, winning a series of corners and dangerous free kicks in the opening exchanges. With 16 minutes gone, they doubled their advantage. Dawson Sawyer’s cross was met by Sam Rogerson, who turned the ball into the net.
Sawyer was next to threaten the DUSC goal, but saw his effort saved by Lennon Mitchell after 24 minutes. Marwood saw his header drift wide of the post not long after, before Logan Mitchell sliced a shot wide from the top of the Brechin box.
The hosts were beginning to improve, with winger Brian Harris causing problems for the Brechin backline. The wide man picked out Logan Whitelaw following a jinking run but the strikers shot was easily saved by Robbie Buchan. Another run from Harris after 37 minutes saw the winger fire just wide.
