John Sheran.

Cove Rangers manager John Sheran was delighted as they proved far too strong for Turriff United and won 5-1 at Harlaw Park.

Doubles from Harry Milne and Jamie Masson as well as a strike from Dan Park won it for the Aberdeen outfit with Cammy Bowden grabbing a late consolation for Turra.

Sheran said: “It was a very enjoyable performance and we’re delighted to have played so well and got the three points.

“We have had some issues against Turriff in the past but I thought our players were really well disciplined and focused. “The play in the first half-an-hour was probably as good as I’ve seen from a Cove team

so it was pleasing and we kept it going. We didn’t just play for half-an-hour and stop and we could have had a few more in the second half.”

The result keeps Cove top of the table with 25 points from a possible 27.

Elsewhere, Fraserburgh stay second after beating Inverurie Locos 3-1 at Bellslea. Paul Young and Gary Harris had the Broch 2-0 up before Andy Hunter scored for Locos but a late Paul Campbell penalty sealed the victory.
