A Josh Milne header seperated Banks O'Dee Albion and Fraserburgh Link Up U16's in a top of the table tussle at Spain Park. 
Albion started the better early on and went 2-0 up in the first quarter of the game. Oscar Slater opened the scoring and that was joined by a header by Finlay Johnston
Marc Watt reduced the leeway for the Broch and a twenty yard strike from Kane McCrory put Fraserburgh back on level terms however a header from Josh MIilne in the second half gave the hosts all three points. 
Banks O'Dee Albion defender Laurie Cunningham helped his side to victory, Cunningham played his first game in a month and he spoke about the game saying "It was a very important win for us and three points against Fraserburgh is always good as they are one of the top teams in the league."
"Fraserburgh got into the game more and got back level however a great header from Josh Milne to win the game. I thought Jack Walker did great in the lead-up to the goal, I have always rated Josh as a good player, he has so much pace and is always scoring goals and I think he is a very good signing for us."
Cunningham was out of last weeks game with Formartine as he was recovering from being in hospital from Hogmanay until the tenth January.
The former Livingston player said "It wasn't fully diagnostic however I was in hospital for Crohn's Disease which is a disease where parts of the digestive tract become inflated, I have to work on special diets and I have managed to lose a bit of weight as well.
Banks O'Dee have been without a very influential player this season in Jamie Hay and he spoke about his injury, saying; "I spoke to a chiropractor on Friday night and he is 98% sure what the injury is and he is aiming to treat it in the next couple of weeks, I would be delighted it if I can play in the last 6-8 games of the season and hopefully play a part in Albion's success, the chiropractor that I spoke to is pretty sure it is my Si Joint. When the injury 1st came up, a lot of people thought it was things such as Muscular and Ligament type of injuries, we have been doing very well this season that it has been annoying being on the sidelines at every game and I have been really down and all that. It has changed my life about a lot however you just have to get through it and hopefully i'll be back sooner rather than later and i've just got to think that i'll be back sooner rather than later, it's difficult to say when i'll be back from injury, the chiropractor thinks he knows what it is however if it isn't then it'll be another long process and i'll have to try and see what it is."
