Match Report


Academy welcomed defending champions Buckie Thistle to Harmsworth Park today and the Jags ran our comprehensive 5-1 winners. Michael Steven conceded a penalty on the 29th minute which Sam Urquhart confidently dispatched. Steven Ross doubled the lead before a freak own goal from Grant Steven, heading into his own net from some distance as McCarthy came to gather, more-or-less put the game to bed. Steven Ross made it four from a well taken free-kick. Steven Anderson pulled one back from the penalty spot but the Jags went nap a minute later through substitute Stuart Taylor.
