MSP Congratulates Broch on Dramatic Cup Win

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson has tabled a motion in the Scottish Parliament in recognition of Fraserburgh FC’s dramatic win in the final of the Evening Express Aberdeenshire Cup on Saturday.

After going 2-0 down to fellow finalists Formartine United, Fraserburgh recovered to equalise in dramatic fashion in the 85th minute, and ultimately took the game to a penalty shoot-out in which they held their nerve.

Man of the match was awarded to Fraserburgh’s Graham Johnston, whose late leveller kept his team in the game.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“Such a thrilling conclusion to the Aberdeenshire Cup will no doubt ensure that the memory stays with players and fans alike for years to come.

“Every credit is due to Fraserburgh for showing the resolve to come back from 2-0 down to win the game. However, that is not to do a disservice to Formartine, who battled until the end, ultimately losing very narrowly, and were gracious in defeat.

“This game also underlines the talent that is on show in the Highland League every week and it is my hope that attendances continue to grow as more people choose to spend their weekends supporting their local team.”
