Golf Inn to the ‘four’ as solid start continues

Golf Inn 4, Fettercairn 0

THE GOLF Inn continued their solid start to the season with a hard fought win at Broomfield on Thursday evening.

The home side came out of the traps very quickly and Croall shot wide in the opening seconds. Barker was then denied by the ‘keeper before the pressure told and he was felled in the box. Barker stepped up and had his penalty saved. The referee ordered a retake due to encroachment and Lewis Edginton stepped up to fire in his first goal for his new club.

Fettercairn started to come into the game and Elgin had to be sharp a couple of times to deny them.

The second goal arrived when Barker went on a mazy run down the right and flighted over a perfect cross for Duncan Croall to head home.

The second half was a scrappy affair with both sides having half chances without threatening the ‘keepers.

The hosts got their third when Josh Clarke rounded off a slick passing move and the fourth arrived late on when Edginton blasted a free kick home from 20 yards.
