Ryan Strachan is hoping he helps Cove Rangers lift the Highland League Cup to complete a clean sweep of medals in north football.
The Highland League champions and leaders take on League Cup holders Formartine United in tomorrow’s final at Inverurie’s Harlaw Park.
For Strachan, who joined the Granite City club in the summer of 2017, it gives him the opportunity to complete a haul of all the available medals in Highland League football in just two seasons.
The midfielder, who can also play in defence, helped Cove win the league and Aberdeenshire Shield last season and the Evening Express Aberdeenshire Cup this term.
Strachan said: “Winning trophies anywhere you play is what you want to do. You want to get rewards for your hard work and success in winning games.
“This is my second season at the club and losing is not something we do often.
“We had a good run in the Scottish Cup last year and we’ve been reaching cup finals so to get the clean sweep of medals would be great.
“It looks like we can go on and win the league as well, but the overall aim is promotion, which is something we wouldn’t get a trophy for.”
Cove only require four points from their final three league fixtures to clinch the title.
With the Shire Cup already in the bag, a potential treble is on the cards this season.
Former Peterhead player Strachan added: “Every cup final is a great occasion, regardless of the level.
“This is no different – it’s a final between two local teams, there will be a good crowd there and it should be a good game.
“We want to win it and hopefully we can do that for our fans.
“A treble would be nice to win. We know that some of the cups are quite short and sweet.
“In some of the cups earlier in the season, if you win a couple of games you can be in the final.
“But we have still won those cups and in the League Cup there have been more games, but we’ve done well.
“The league is the priority and if we could get promotion it maybe overshadows other things.
“But a treble isn’t something you get the chance to do often as a player, so we’re up for trying to do it.”
Cove have won two of the four meetings with Formartine this campaign. There was also a draw in the league and United recorded a victory in the Aberdeenshire Shield.
Despite the superior record Strachan is taking nothing for granted tomorrow.
He said: “We expect the same as Formartine always provide against us. They are organised, hard-working and hard to beat. They give us tough games.
“We have had the upper hand in more of the games this season, but that doesn’t mean we will win tomorrow.
“We have prepared well, we won’t take anything for granted and hopefully luck is on our side.”
