Culter had another fine week with victories over Lewis United in the Superleague and Forres Thistle in the North Regional Cup Quarter Final.

Those wins kept Culter in the hunt for an unprecedented four trophies in one season, having already won the Grill League Cup in November.

Going into Tuesday’s round of games, Culter lie in second place, two points behind leaders Hall Russell United having played four games less.

However the Deesiders had to work hard for their victory over First Division side Forres Thistle on Saturday. The Highland side took the lead and could have added a second with a penalty but Culter scored three times in the last ten minutes to secure victory over 10-man Forres.

Culter boss Andy Gibson was impressed with the lower league opponents.

He said: “We struggled on Saturday but all credit to Forres. They played well in the first half, scored a good goal and also missed a penalty.

“We made three changes early in the 2nd half and we had them camped in their half, their keeper made a couple of great saves and I thought it was going to be one of those days but then we got a penalty and Ryan Stott scored.

“I must admit I felt we would score again as our boys do keep going right to the end and we scored a couple of very good goals through Ross McWilliam and Lewis McKimmie.”

Gibson admitted it is a surprise that his side has the chance of winning four trophies but is cautiously optimistic.

“The prospect of four trophies is on, we have a lot of tough games to play but the way we are playing we have a good chance, and we have a big squad to choose from.”
