Maud had neighbours Longside as visitors in a cup match and the visitors started the better and went in front when they broke quickly with Davison’s first-time cross was met by Butcher who had a simple finish. Maud hit straight back when they were awarded a penalty which Hale converted. Fyfe kept the score level with a fine save. Sergent was unlucky hitting the post from a tight angle. The away side went back in front with a carbon copy of their first with Butcher netting his second goal of the game. Longside contained the game until the half time whistle blew.                              HT 1 – 2

Maud had a good spell at the start of the second half and levelled when Thomson’s shot found its way into the net from the edge of the box. Butcher fired Longside back in front once more with a rocket of a shot from 20 yards leaving Fyfe no chance in the Maud goal. Hale brought a fine save from Summers from 12 yards.  Butcher was soon to make it 4-2 after grabbing his fourth of the game before going off injured. Summers made a good save from a Hale shot tipping over the bar. Substitute Ramsey completed the scoring when he was played through on goal and he slotted it past Fyfe. This was a very poor performance by the home side but Longside were far the better team on the day.

Maud next fixture is on Saturday 3 February away against Banchory St Ternan in the Superleague 2pm ko
