Pre-season fixtures start in earnest

Pre-season friendlies

- Saturday February 4

A NUMBER of pre-season games beat the wet weather on Saturday February 4.

Aberdour 1

Glasgow Mid Argyll 0

Marine Harvest South Division 1 side Aberdour fought off a second half onslaught from Marine Harvest Premiership new-boys Glasgow Mid Argyll to win 1-0 in their friendly match at Silversands.

Angus Thorburn gave Aberdour the lead with a well-taken goal mid-way through the first half.

GMA launched wave after wave of attack on the Aberdour goal in a bid to get back on level terms but they found the Aberdour defence to be well organised and when they did get a shot at goal, Aberdour goalie Tom Bowerman was in inspired form.

The match was played in difficult weather conditions and was cut short to avoid further damage to the pitch, especially around the goal-mouth areas.

Aberdour 2

Glasgow Mid Argyll 1 Aberdour’s second team beat the Glasgow Mid Argyll seconds 2-1 in their 11.30am throw up at Silversands.

Both Aberdour goals came in the opening 10 minutes, with Craig Girvan and Brian Toal on target.

Former Kilmallie player Seb MacMillan got the GMA goal in the second half.

Caberfeidh 6

Glenurquhart 2

Marine Harvest National Division side Caberfeidh beat Glenurquhart from the Marine Harvest Premiership 6-2 in their 2pm throw-up at Castle Leod.

It was a first game back in a Caberfeidh shirt for Kevin Bartlett after his stint with Lovat. And Bartlett made a telling contribution, as the Scotland international scored four times, with Gavin Mclauchlan getting the other two.
