Culter could complete a remarkable treble on Saturday when they take on Fraserburgh United in the final of the McLeman Cup.

The Deesiders have already secured the Grill League Cup and the Superleague title this season and ended the league campaign with an 8-1 thrashing of Deeside rivals Banchory St Ternan.

That result meant Culter have scored 23 goals in their last four games which puts them as huge favourites against the Broch who finished at the foot of the Superleague table.

Culter boss Andy Gibson has been impressed with how well his side have been playing towards the end of the season.

He said: “It has been a great run of form. That is 92 goals in 26 league games so very pleasing to win the league with a bit of style.”

Culter’s result against Saints on Monday night was even more impressive considering The Deesiders had several players out injured.

“We were excellent on Monday night as we were down to 13 fit players so Gary Thow and myself were both on the bench as trialists but we played some great passing football and looked a threat every time we went forward.”

Gibson knows his side go into Saturday’s final as favourites but he is still expecting a tough test against the Broch.

“We are looking forward to the Fraserburgh game and we will try to end the season on a high, especially as we are the holders of the McLeman Cup.

“We will give them the respect they are due because they have done well to get to the final but we will go for them right from the start and try and play the game at a high pace, which suits us.”

Culter v Fraserburgh Utd is at Davidson Park, Longside with kick off 2.30pm. A bus is travelling to the game and names of supporters wishing to travel on the bus should be arranged and confirmed with Mario DiMaio on 07779 424682.
