Battle of Harlaw

Oh well... it was always going to be a big ask for a Highland League side to eliminate SPL opposition, but I'd been keeping my fingers crossed that Inverurie Locos might do just that in the Scottish Cup against a Motherwell side that has been, well, performing indifferently of late. The weather tonight seemed to set the scene for a cup upset but alas, it wasn't to be, with Motherwell progressing by three goals to nil.

Shops in the town have been showing their support for Locos with special window displays - a welcome display of colour which lasted longer than anyone had expected thanks to the multiple postponements of the tie. The sense of pride and anticipation in the town has been palpable over the last few weeks and a joy to share in for someone like me who works there.

Even though it wasn't the result Inverurie was hoping for, well done to everyone at the club. You did the town proud.

Most considerate of Locos to delay the fixture long enough for Well to get back on form. We appreciate that!
