The Jags were at home to Fraserburgh and Mr Stevenson accepted an invitation from Buckie Thistle directors to attend and also draw the raffle at half-time.

Commenting after the match, Mr Stevenson said:

“I was delighted to see two of my constituency's teams engaged in such a hard-fought and entertaining match.  At the end of the day 3-1 for Fraserburgh was the outcome although I had been looking for a draw so that neither of my teams lost!

“I was pleased to draw the winning ticket for the Jags' £500 raffle and as luck would have it, a Buckie team player won it.  Perhaps a wee bit of compensation for the result.

“Altogether, it was an enjoyable afternoon and a reminder that the Highland League offers a really engrossing spectacle and represents real community sport.”
