Annan progressed to the fourth round of the Scottish Youth Cup for the first time with a victory at Galabank on Sunday  against a Fraserburgh side who could consider themselves unlucky to go down.
 
After a promising start Annan deservedly went ahead in the 20th minute from a set piece after  man of the match James Gillan headed Jimmy Johnstone’s free kick into the top corner of the net. 
 
Fraserburgh pushed hard towards the end of the half and were rewarded with a fine goal. James Gibb and Steven Davidson combined to send in a low cross and Aaron Garden finished the move off ramming the ball over the line from four yards.
 
Annan regained the lead in the 63rd minute. Rabine Omar did the damage, winning the ball on the bye line and cutting the ball back into the path of Zak Caldwell who hammered the ball into the net from close range.
 
Garden then squandered a glorious opportunity two minutes later firing over the bar.
 
The visitors pressed hard for the eqauliser, but it was Annan who clinched the game in the 85th minute when James Gillan’s superb strike from 25 yards thundered into the net to earn Annan a place in the fourth round.
 
Annan – C Murray, J Gillan, D Wadge, D Wood, M McInespie,  J Brown, J Johnstone, D Irving, C Liddle, R Omar, Z Caldwell, J Gemmel, B Wagner, B Ford.
 
Fraserburgh – E Flinn, B Patterson, M Maitland, B Hastie, C Buchan, G Thomson, H Burr, S Davidson, A Garden, J Walker, A Combe, J Gibb, J Daniel, R Duncan, J Sim, D Cowie
