Turriff United were beaten 3-1 at Brechin City in the first Highland League game to be played at Glebe Park.

Brechin's sustained pressure in the first half of the season opener saw them take the lead half an hour in with Gregor Jordan finding the net.

Just minutes later United conceded again when Marc Scott scored for the home side.

However, Turriff got back into the game just before half-time when Rory Brown netted.

Shortly after the break Brechin scored again with Rory Currie getting his team's third.

The home side then went down to 10 men when Jack Milne was shown a second yellow card.

Turriff were looking to make their extra man advantage count and had the ball in the net but referee Liam Duncan ruled it to be offside.

At the other end Brechin then had the ball in the Turriff net, but that effort was also flagged for offside.

In the closing stages, United were pushing to score but the match ended in a 3-1 victory for the home side.
