Chris Angus haunts Buckie as Inverurie Locos stay on track

It could have been written in the stars that Inverurie Locos striker Chris Angus would score on his return to Buckie’s Victoria Park, a ground he graced for almost a decade.

The 27-year-old scored the third goal in a 3-1 win and he savoured the moment.

Angus said: “It was an error from my old team-mate Lewis Mackinnon and not for the first time in my career I was able to latch on to a mistake by a defender and slot the ball home.

“It really was a scrappy game but I think we did enough to claim all three points. Andy Hunter did well scoring two goals, the last kick of the first half and within a minute after the restart with a header from my cross.

“Andy’s a very good player. He’s big and strong and he likes to get on the end of crosses. It was just a shame that he had to come off with a head knock after an hour when he would have been looking for a hat-trick.”

Angus has no regrets about leaving the Jags at the end of last year.

He added: “I’m really enjoying myself at Locos. They have a great bunch of lads but it’s still a very young squad.

“Neil Cooper is a great manager. He told me when I arrived at the club that they had ambitions to hopefully go on and win the league next season. I’m fully behind him on that score and hopefully we can.

“We are capable of a top-four finish this term and another couple of good results can help us on our way to achieving that objective.”
