Jonathan Garden scores again as Fraserburgh edge thriller

JONATHAN Garden works for a company called Score – and is making a habit of doing just that on his occasional Saturdays off.

The 18-year-old mechanical engineer is Fraserburgh's top scorer with eight goals and Saturday's contribution proved vital as the Broch edged out Forres Mechanics 4-3.

After six wins in a row, Charlie Duncan's men sit fourth, seven points behind leaders Buckie but with a game in hand.

Garden, though, says nobody at Bellslea Park is getting carried away. He said: "When you look at how many games are left you realise it would be silly to speak about winning the league."

The only match to beat the weather proved a cracker, with a Graeme Grant own goal putting the Broch in front after 17 minutes. Ricky Wardrop levelled for the Can Cans after 26 minutes with a close-range strike. On the half hour Alan Hale headed home and three minutes later Garden scored from four yards out.

Wardrop pulled another goal back for Forres four minutes into the second half. On 65 minutes Nathan Sharp brought down Hale who converted the resulting penalty

However, Forres weren't finished and a 25-yard thunderbolt from Ian Penwright set up a grandstand finish, with Duncan's men only just clinging on.
