Match Report


Academy chalked up a great 4-2 win against today's visitors Inverurie Locos in what turned out to be heavy under-foot conditions. Richard Macadie had the Scorries in front after only a minute played and Steven Anderson nodded home a free-kick just passed the quarter hour to double the advantage. Davie Allan had the Scorries 3 up before goals from Stephen Jeffery and Colin Charlesworth put the Locos right back into the game. Davie Allan however restored the two goal advantage on the hour mark to seal the win. Locos ended the game with 10 men when Jeffery received a straight red card from referee David Watt for an off the ball incident involving Ross Allan.

The Scorries got off to a flyer. Gary Weir picked out Davie Allan up the left flank who crossed for Richard Macadie for an easy tap-in from close range.

1 - 0

Just passed the quarter hour the advantage was doubled when Steven Anderson rose highest in the box to head home a Gary Manson free-kick.

2 - 0

Manson also had a hand in Academy's third when he swept a 35 yard pin-point pass up the right wing to David Allan who hit the burners beating the Locos off-side trap, rounded keeper Errol Watson and slotted home into an empty net.

3 - 0

So Academy in the box-seat but just before half-time the Locos pulled a goal back. Manson gave away a free kick on the left edge of the Academy box. Neil McLean swung it in and Stephen Jeffery found himself without a marker and headed home at the back post.

3 - 1
