Fraserburgh 4, Coldstream 0: Three down at half time, Coldstream were knocked out of the William Hill Scottish Cup by a Fraserburgh team who proved worthy winners.

The Highland League outfit were prolific in front of goal at Bellslea Park, Ryan Christie, Mark Cowie, Scott Barbour and Graham Johnston all finding the net.

The hosts capitaled on a mistake by Coldstream goalkeeper Mark Walters to go in front and their lead with an outstanding volley into the top corner from 25 yards. The third goal arrived just before half time to end the tie as a contest.

Martyn Tait replaced the injured Sean Simpson at the beginning of the second half and Andrew Gibson’s visitors began to get a foothold with some decent possession. Captain John Crawford went close to pulling a goal back, but headed wide from eight yards.

Fraserburgh again took control and added a fourth when their forward broke through to chip into the top corner of the net.

Coldstream: M Walters, J Ainslie, M Simpson, M Allan, K Ainslie, S Simpson, J Hebdon, C Heugh, K Neil, J Simpson, J Crawford. Subs: Taylor, G Wales, M Cornish, M Tait, S Coyle.
