Written by

A Finlay Ness brace and strikes from Gavin Troup and Ewan Reid were enough for Aberdeen City to come out on top in a pulsating encounter against Aberdeenshire.

Cameron Heslop and Archie Hopper netted for the hosts.

Aberdeenshire took the lead on nine minutes, a ball from Will Storey found Heslop whose lightening effort curled past the stranded Jakub Biorka from 15 yards, Shire started the game the brighter and the lead was deserved.

Both sides restricted each other to limited chances in the first period however some good football was played at the same time.

Three minutes before half time it was 1-1, a corner kick from Dylan Forsyth found Lewis Robertson who headed onto Troup eight yards from goal, where he side-footed the ball into the net beyond Kyle Leiper to change the complexity of the game.

Dyce with eight against United

Written by

Dyce BC Blues and Formartine United went head to head in an Under 13s Spree A league fixture with Dyce coming out on top comfortably and whilst Formartine will be hurting with the scoreline. They showed some good moments in the game against a stronger Dyce side.

The hosts threatened from the off. A good ball found Gafar Abari however his effort from a wide angle just went wide of the left hand post with Dyce showing their impetus early on to get their noses in front.

Blues took the lead on five minutes. Another good assist found Abari and this time the striker made no mistake finishing off a fine move past the advancing Jack Robertson from 16 yards out.

On eight minutes, it was 2-0. Another fine move from the hosts saw a good ball by Aidan Brookes found Dylan Shaw who knocked the ball into the back of the net from four yards out to give Dyce some comfort.

It took a while for Formartine to get into the game however United did threaten shortly after the goal. A cross from Branden Beaton found Finlay Brown who had a good effort on goal just wide of the left hand post.

Dyce played some smashing football towards the tail end of the first half and got themselves four goals in the final 12 minutes of the half. The first one arrived on 24 minutes when Owen Townend cut the ball back which was met by Shaw who got his second goal of the game slamming the ball past Robertson.

A minute later, it was 4-0. A Formartine clearance only went as far as Brookes whose effort from the edge of the box found it's way into the bottom left hand corner. Brookes deservedly getting a goal for putting in a good shift for the hosts.

It was 5-0 soon after a ball over the top of the Formartine backline resulted in a fifth goal for the hosts with Zane Lawson grabbing a goal with a good finish.

On 30 minutes, Formartine pulled a goal back, their forward line capitalised on a defensive mistake and Aarron Buckle guided the ball home into the low corner to make the score line a lot more respectable.

Lawson completed the scoring just before half time for Dyce after he got the ball and the forward finished well from the edge of the box.

Westdyke pick up Dyce away win

Written by

Dyce Whites and Westdyke CC Under 13s met in a Spree A League Under 13s fixture at Pitmedden Road, Dyce on an unsettled Sunday morning. Westdyke won 3-0 thanks to goals from Sean Considine, Milosz Ochmanski and Gregor Zimmerman.

Westdyke took the lead on eight minutes. Zimmerman was a constant threat for Westdyke and played very well for the visitors, his ball found talented forward Considine who guided the ball into the back of the net beyond the Dyce goalkeeper to give the visitors the best start to the game.

Dyce BC Whites have just formed as a team a couple of months ago and under the guidance of coaches including former professional Lewis Muirhead. Dyce had opportunities of their own including a free kick from Harry Baird which was gathered by Seth Miller in the opposition goal.

Both sides had half chances with the half coming to an end, Westdyke kept on playing some good football with Dyce also battling well and the hosts had some good individual and team performances, an effort from Matthew Burnett was denied by Miller.

The weather conditions were getting horrendous as the game wore on and it did take a lot out of either side however it's an experience both sides will benefit for the future.

Fraserburgh into third round of cup with Elgin win

Written by

Fraserburgh earned a place in the third round of the SYFA Youth Cup with a 5-4 win over Scottish League side Elgin City away from home, the game was played in the right spirit from both sides with both sides impressing with some good players on either team.

The Broch took the lead after 11 minutes. A good corner came in from the talented Logan Watt and his corner found centre half Arnadas Cepulis in space who guided a fine effort into the roof of the net with a half volley to give the visitors a perfect start.

Logan Watt went from provider to goalscorer four minutes later. Watt was playing in a midfield role and always looking dangerous whenever he had the ball, a Liam Morrison ball found the playmaker who fired home from close range to double the advantage for the Broch.

Liam Morrison was a constant threat for the Elgin defence and was one of the youngest players on the park, Morrison deservedly got himself on the scoresheet on 24 minutes. Adam Crichton's kick was blocked by Scott Murison and he crossed for Morrison to tap the ball into an empty net, not a special goal but they all count.

Elgin got into the game towards the tailend of the first half and deserved to get their name on the scoresheet. Elgin had some routine attacks in the first half and a free kick by Rhys Fraser-Prescott was met by Caiol Provan who guided home a glancing header beyond Ross Mowatt in the Broch goal, the game got a bit heated before half time.

Deveronvale into third round with Newtonhill win

Written by

Goals from Malcolm Morrison and Campbell McDermott were enough for Deveronvale to come out on top against Newtonhill and earn their place in the third round of the Scottish Cup.

Deveronvale and Newtonhill Under 16s met at Banff Academy in a second round Scottish Cup tie with both sides participating in the A league, so a good even game was in prospect.

It was a game ruined by wind and various other things, however it was a cracking cup tie with end to end activity. Newtonhill can feel hard done being on the losing side, however Deveronvale showed great desire to advance.

Newtonhill and Deveronvale both played some good passing football in the opening stages of the game, though there was nothing clear cut in terms of chances during the first 10 minutes. Despite this, the way both sides went about playing their football was refreshing to see, there was the occasional punt however apart from that, Deveronvale tried to play out from the back using their goalkeeper whenever they could whilst Newtonhill played some good passing to try and cut open Vale.

Vale had the first real chance after 12 minutes. Captain Campbell McDermott found Glen Morrison whose shot was on target however a good save from Archie Spence denied the left back.

The hosts took the lead two minutes later, when a ball from Ross McDonald found Malcolm Morrison who tucked the ball home from four yards to give Vale the perfect start.

It was almost 2-0 on 20 minutes with Kyle Buxton having an effort crash off the post before Liam Fraser forced a good save from Spence, who was to save Newtonhill on a few occasions.

Newtonhill were level four minutes before half time, Josh Middler saw his effort parried by Jamie Williamson before Kyle Flockhart placed the rebound into the bottom left hand corner beyond the Deveronvale backline.

Deveronvale maintain 100% start with Aberdon win

Written by

Deveronvale came from a goal down in the Spree ADJFA C League under 15s fixture to beat Aberdon 5-1 at Banff Academy astroturf, both teams had 100% records heading into the game with Deveronvale's ambitions of league success taking a huge step forward towards their targets.

Aberdon took the lead after four minutes when Callum O'Brien drove past the Vale backline and guided a fine effort home past Callum Begg in the Vale goal to give the visitors the dream start. Aberdon were fast going from the word go and took advantage of the Banff sides slow start to put themselves in front.

Vale found an equaliser four minutes later. Ahren Duncan was a vocal captain and defender for the hosts and it was the skipper who levelled matters up after a good corner came in and Duncan was there to guide the ball home past Ben Horne in the Aberdon goal which gave the hosts the lift required.

Shaun MacDonald put in a very good shift for the Vale and his hard work was rewarded after he got the ball and fired a fine effort into the bottom left hand corner with 20 minutes on the clock.

Nine minutes before half time, Vale doubled the advantage after a good ball from Alan McLeod found MacDonald who went on a darting run before keeping his composure to slot the ball into the back of the net beyond Horne.

Northstar Orange Under 14s made it four wins out of four in the Spree ADJFA B league with a 1-0 win over Westdyke CC, both teams will be up there challenging for the league at the end of the season with not a lot to seperate the sides, a goal from Richard Sandison four minutes from half time was the difference. 

Westdyke had the first chance of the game, a ball from Jude Masson found Jay Neil however a good save from Archie Stephen denied the striker. Northstar attacked at the other end a short time later and won a free kick, Jake Coutts had his free kick saved by Finlay Wilson. 

Both teams were playing some good football however towards the tail end of the first half, nobody was really in any danger of scoring, there was little attacking threat but there was ambition from both teams. 

Northstar took the lead four minutes before the break, a free kick came in which wasn't dealt with properly by the Westdyke backline and Richard Sandison was there to rattle the ball home into the top corner beyond Wilson to give the hosts the lead heading into half time.


Northstar Under 15s earned their place in the second round of the Scottish Cup with a fantastic 5-1 win over Glentanar, the scoreline was a little bit harsh on Glentanar with the difference being Northstar had a fantastic 20 minute spell in the second half. 

Andrew Buck had a good effort for Northstar in the eighth minute over the bar before Usman Shehu had a curling effort denied by Matthew Taylor in the Glentanar goal, both sides had good opportunities in the early stages of the game. 

Northstar took the lead on 22 minutes, a ball found Shehu who slid the ball home into the back of the net beyond the Glentanar backline, a goal which set the scene for the game.

Glentanar tried to pull level with Kieran Hurley had an effort from the edge of the box over the bar before Jamie Reith tried to double the lead for the hosts however his effort cannoned off the bar.

Donside gearing up for Scottish Cup quarter-final

Written by
Donside Juvenile Under 13 girls are all set for their Scottish Cup quarter-final match against Central girls legends on Sunday lunchtime with a 12pm kick off. The Alford side are going well in the Kim Little and they are top of the respective league.
Neil Daniel’s side have beaten Colony Park in the preliminary round before a 9-0 victory over East Kilbride in the first round of the cup, a succession of home ties was to follow after that with an 8-1 win over Ayr United before a 6-0 win against Hearts in the last round.
Coach Daniel looked ahead to the game saying, “For us especially, our aim at the start of the season was the same as last season, which was if we had one home tie and one away tie it would be great because we are giving the girls an experience of travelling away to a new club somewhere in Scotland. And also a home tie so we could give our supporters behind us and I think we have been very lucky this year to have one away tie and three home ties.
“Now we have a bit of luck in getting our fourth home tie and we are hoping the journey continues, Central will be a good side, we have had a lot of good momentum going into this match and also throughout the season, we’ve had a lot of positive results and hopefully keep the momentum going.
“If we could get past this tie and into the semi-final it would be a dream, we didn’t expect to be here and we will try and perform our best on Sunday, the women’s game has been very positive in this region, we are all volunteers and have all helped the club grow.”
