Sheran is delighted by Cove’s fantastic display against Huntly

Cove's manager John Sheran.

Cove Rangers manager John Sheran labeled his side’s second half performance at Huntly “fantastic”.

His team kept their unbeaten Highland League campaign going with a 3-1 win at Christie Park.

Sheran, pictured, said: “We went three at the back and encouraged the boys to play as much football as possible and keep the ball.

“We got a goal within 30 seconds of the half starting, which obviously gave us the lift that we needed and probably sowed a few doubts in the Huntly players’ minds.

“We played fantastic football and passed the ball really well.”

After losing last weekend’s Aberdeenshire Cup final, Cove remain top of the table, despite having Daniel Park sent off in the first period.

Ross Still put Huntly ahead after eight minutes before Park was sent off for a challenge on Paul Napier.

Right after the break, Mitch Megginson ran on to a Jonny Smith pass to tuck in the equaliser.

Harry Milne then swivelled on a ball, which had dropped from a Cove corner, to fire them into the lead, before Jamie Masson headed a third.

Sheran said: “It think the sending off was harsh. Both players kicked the ball at the same time and their player was bit smaller.

“I certainly didn’t think it was a red card.”
