Locos hit fort for four
Inverurie Locos followed up on their fine win over Formartine United by scoring four for the second Saturday in a row against Fort William, this time without reply.
The Harlaw Park side eventually got the opening goal in 23 minutes, with the trialist Fort William goalkeeper ineffective in his attempts to save a weak Jordan LEYDEN effort.
John MAITLAND’S headed goal made it 2-0 in the 56th minute and also scoring with a header on the hour mark was Gordon FORSYTH, his second goal of the season.
Substitute Joe McCABE completed the scoring in the 75th minute and now leads the way in the Locos scoring charts with three this season so far.
Fort William:M Taylor (T), F Macrae (R Macrae 88), Campbell, Moffat, MacPherson, Lamont, Miller (Browett 83), Chisolm, MacRitchie (L Taylor 65), Macleod, MacLelland
Subs: R Macrae (T), Ellis (T), McNiven (T), Lewandowski
Inverurie Locos:Mathieson, Mitchell, Maitland, Begg (McCabe 65), Forsyth, Broadhurst, Charlesworth (Laing 60), Maclean, Leyden, Bavidge, Souter ( Young 73)
Subs: Robertson, McCaffrey

After the match Locos co boss Kenny Coull said: “We did have a few chances before we opened the scoring but it was unfortunate for their goalkeeper when he let the ball slip through his hands. We went on to kick on from there by scoring three good goals.”
This Saturday Locos will have to be at their very best to beat neighbours Turriff United who finished a close second to Brora Rangers last season and have again started in excellent form. Kick off at Harlaw Park is at 3pm.
