Jake Grady’s quickfire double took Fairmuir joint top of the Maryfield League. The striker scored twice in two minutes as Fairmuir knocked Logie Harp out of second place.
Harp are the league’s top scorers, and would have been ahead inside three minutes if not for a goal line clearance from Evan Adam.
Jake Grady is Fairmuir’s top scorer in all competitions this season, and he added to his tally after eight minutes. Matthew Nelson provided the pass in behind the Harp defence, and Grady made no mistake with a composed chip over Samuel Ross.
Lighting struck twice for the Fairmuir forward, who curled a shot past the helpless Ross a minute after the opener. It was a dream start for Fairmuir, who found themselves two to the good inside the first 10 minutes.
The pitch and conditions were not compatible with a free-flowing game of football, as both sides went direct in search of goals. Brian Harris had an effort blocked and Keir Murray brought a save out of Cammy Hendry as the hosts looked for a way back in to the match.
Lennox Slater headed over from close range on the half hour mark. It was a golden chance that the big striker really should have taken.
