Inverurie Locos manager Neil Cooper believes the passion of everyone at the club has played a big part in their fine start to the season.
The Railwaymen beat Lossiemouth 5-2 at Grant Park to move up to fourth in the Highland League with 22 points from 10 games.
Cooper’s team went ahead through captain Neil McLean before Ross Elliot levelled for the Coasters.
After Neil Gauld missed a penalty for the Garioch team, he proceeded to net four times with Scott Campbell’s late penalty a consolation for Lossie.
Cooper said: “I see the passion of the chairman, the vice-chairman and the committee.
“You see the passion from the supporters as well and I see the players in training during the week and they work hard.
“We’ve had a half-a-dozen players out this season for a long time and we’ve managed to win games and score goals.
“We’re the highest scorers in the league, which is a great return with Jonny Smith and Andy Hunter out.
“It’s been really good and I really appreciate the effort my coaching staff put in.
“We’re all working together, it’s not one person, it’s everyone working together.
“It’s the same off the pitch with the committee and I hope all of that adds up to the fans enjoying the football we’re playing.”
On the victory, which saw striker Gauld move to 18 goals this season, Cooper added: “It’s fantastic the way he has started the season.
“I’m delighted for the players because they worked really hard and put in a good performance in difficult circumstances.
“It was hard to pass the ball on the dry pitch.”
