Sunday Premier Division
BROTHERS In Arms made it a winning start to the new Peterhead Sunday Soccersixes Premier Division season as they edged out Chancers 2-1 this week. Tev Warrander’s Chancers side will feel aggrieved at having missed chances to secure a draw with John Fraser scoring their only goal.
Reigning champions Sparka are the early league leaders thanks to a thumping 5-1 success against Galacticos as they look to defend their title. Paul Campbell (2), Stuart Taylor (2) and Brandon McBain were the men on target.
Big G Wanderers, Sparka’s title rivals last season, started their campaign brightly with a 3-1 success against a hard working Inter YM outfit.
Misfits and Pathetico Madrid, friends at work but enemies for the night, battled out a superbly entertaining match which was closely fought throughout. Misfits eventually showed their extra quality to grind out a 2-0 victory and snatch the bragging rights until they meet again after Christmas.
League secretary, Paul Spacey, commented: “It is fantastic to have ten teams in involved for the new season.
“I am aware that a couple of the teams have ex-junior and some ex-pros playing in their squads and the top couple of sides in the past few seasons have been a little too good for the rest.
“To even the playing field a little we will be awarding trophies to the top three teams this season as opposed to the top two.”
Wednesday Premier Division
Big G Wanderers remain in pole position in the Soccersixes Peterhead Wednesday Premier Division despite going down 5-1 to HEA this week.
The defeat is their first of the season and brings their 100% record to an end whilst also opening up the title race. Ryan Duncan (3) and Brandon McBain (2) netted for HEA who narrowed the gap on the leading sides with the surprisingly comfortable victory.
Bunts Boys are joint top following a thumping 6-2 success against Total Inscaff who remain in mid-table.
Billys Boys remain in third thanks to their fifth win in eight outings as they battered Allan Geddes Project 5-0 with goals coming from Mark Campbell (2), AJ Buchan, Ian Smith and William Buchan. Goalkeeper Philip Duthrie saved a penalty to secure a clean sheet for his team.
Argonauts’ Ryan Scott scored the perfect hat-trick with a left foot, right foot and header combination to propel his side to a 3-0 victory against Buchan Broncos.
The victory sees them leapfrog Broncos into eighth place in the table.
Average Joes took on Camberwick in what was expected to be a closely fought game but Joes took control pretty much from the outset and breezed to a 3-0 success.
Camberwick’s Captain, Dave Anderson, said, “That was a shocking performance tonight from the lads, I’ll be making changes for next week and bringing in some new players for sure.
