The Broch retained the Aberdeenshire Cup with a 3-1 win against Formartine United at Harlaw Park Inverurie. After a frenetic start where both teams had chances Formartine opened the scoring through SCOTT LISLE who smashed the ball past Paul Leask in the Broch goal. As the first half wore on the Broch began to take a stranglehold of the game and Scott Barbour hit the woodwork twice first being through on goal and from a quickly taken Ryan Cowie free kick but trailed at half time. The team must have got a rollicking from Mark Cowie at half time as thee Broch came out of the traps quickly. The fans felt a Broch equaliser was coming and it duly arrived. A long punt upfield from Paul Leask was headed in by PAUL CAMPBELL who looked like the hungrier player and beat the Formartine keeper to the ball to make it 1-1. GAME ON! By this point the Broch were well on top of their opponents and just after the hour mark the Broch took the lead for the first time in the match. SCOTT BARBOUR received a throw in from wide on the right and cut inside and unleashed a rasping shot high past the goalkeeper to send the Broch fans into raptures once again. Formartine did threaten a couple of times but the Broch held firm. With 11 minutes to go Man Of The Match PAUL CAMPBELL capitalised on a woeful back pass to seal the match and make it 3-1. The game then petered out from there and when the final whistle went the players and fans were in delirium. The Broch have won the Aberdeenshire 5 times since 2012 which is an amazing achievement in itself.
