For the second season running, Huntly and Fraserburgh had to settle for a share of the points at Christie Park as the visitors came from behind twice.

Huntly were missing Christopher Hay through work commitments as Alexander Thoirs and Kai Ross both came into the starting eleven with Declan Milne dropping down to the bench. Fraserburgh were without goalkeeper Paul Leask through work commitments as Edward Flinn made his first start since 6th August.


Huntly took the lead with just under five minutes gone. A long throw from Alexander Thoirs was launched into the visitor’s box and dropped kindly for Kai Ross who netted his second goal in three games with a first time finish.

The black and gold’s came close to making it two when Nathan Meres went on a run before his effort was blocked by Edward Flinn in the Fraserburgh box.

Fraserburgh levelled midway through the half when Ryan Cowie’s free kick from the right was met by Bryan Hay and he knocked the ball to William West to net his first goal since mid-November with a close range.

Just before the half-hour mark, a long throw by Ryan Cowie was not dealt with and Paul Campbell’s header was held by John Farquhar. Farquhar again kept out the visitors after forty minutes when he blocked a Jamie Beagrie shot after the midfielder got onto a Scott Barbour pass.

Two minutes before the break, Paul Campbell struck the post before former Fraserburgh loanee Liam MacDonald cleared the danger.

Half-Time: Huntly 1 Fraserburgh 1

With two minutes gone, Glenn Murison created an opening for Alexander Thoirs whose left-footed drive flashed by the post.

Huntly were ahead again four minutes after the break when Nathan Meres took advantage of a defensive lapse before firing in his sixth of the season.

There was controversy in the build-up to Fraserburgh’s second goal when Huntly defender Bradley Manson was fouled inside his own box before the ball broke to Gary Harris fired in fourth goal in five matches.

Huntly full back Alexander Thoirs (50 minutes) and Manager Martin Skinner (57) both picked up cautions for dissent but the Broch forwards could count themselves lucky to escape any cards for swearing at Assistant Referee Will Adam who had reported Skinner for dissent.

Huntly were reduced to ten men after 58 minutes when Alexander Thoirs saw a straight red for a challenge on Paul Young.

Logan Johnstone kept his side in the game in the 66th minute clearing a Paul Campbell shot after the forward lifted a shot beyond Farquhar. Four minutes later, the woodwork again denied The Broch when his shot struck the post.

Huntly Manager Martin Skinner picked up a second caution for dissent after Assistant Referee Will Adam reported the home technical area for comments made.

Substitute Declan Milne came close to restoring the lead for his side when his attempt rolled by the far post.

A great save from Farquhar late on ensured his side would earn a share of the points keeping out Harris with two minutes remaining.

Fraserburgh would also finish the game with ten men when Paul Campbell saw a second caution inside the final minute for a deliberate hand ball.
