Culter co-manager Andy Gibson was proud of his players after they defeated Ellon United 5-0 at The Meadows on Saturday.

The Deesiders were beaten 3-0 by Banks O’ Dee at Crombie Park last week which ended an eight game winning run for the title contenders.

However Culter got back to winning ways with a resounding win on Saturday which leaves them just eight points behind league leaders Hall Russell United, who have played five games more.

Gibson was delighted at the way his players reacted after last week’s defeat to Banks O’ Dee.

He said: “It was a great result against Ellon after losing to Banks O’ Dee on the Tuesday.

“We freshened the team up slightly on Saturday and the guys who came in - Alan Youngson, Richard Wyness and Lewis Mckimmie all did very well.”

Culter take a break from league duty this weekend as they entertain FC Stoneywood for the second time in four days in the 2nd round of the McLeman Cup.

The Culter side has warned that his side cannot afford to take the city side lightly as they too have been in great form.

Gibson said: “We now have to take each game as it comes and Stoneywood will be a tough game.

“They beat us 3-1 back in March and their form has been very good but the thing we have just now is a very good team spirit, with a bit of confidence and we will need it over the coming weeks as the season comes to an end.”

Culter take on FC Stoneywood in the 2nd Round of the McLeman Cup this Saturday (April 30) at Crombie Park. Kick off is at 2.15pm with the match going straight to penalties if level after 90 minutes.
