Rovers cup nap works wonders
WINNING ways returned to Merson Park on Saturday when Buckie Rovers put Spey Valley Utd to the sword.
The hosts exploded into this year’s Elginshire Cup with a 5-0 thrashing of their Section 1 qualifying pool opponents.
Lucas Davidson grabbed a brace, while Mike Campbell underlined his importance to the team with a goal on his return from suspension.
Ryan Matheson and Brodie Christie rounded off the scoring for Rovers.
The scoreline left Buckie co-manager Kyle Mackay a happy man.
“It was just what we were looking for, the boys went out there and did the business,” he said.
“In the first half we created a lot of chances but didn’t take them, so we were a bit disappointed to go in at half time only 1-0 up especially as we’d had the wind at our backs.
“We had a word at half-time and it all came together, they were all good goals we scored.
“Mike [Campbell] showed why he’s so important to the team, he does make a difference to us when he plays.”
It will be back to the job of league survival for Rovers when they head for Fraserburgh this Saturday, kick-off 1.30pm.
Mackay added: “It’s always a tough game going to the Broch, but we are capable of taking three points.
“We need to start getting some more points on the board.”
