A professional performance from the visitors was enough for Banchory to pick up a good 4-0 win away to Newmachar and earn promotion back to the A league. The calculations were simple ahead of this one, Newmachar United had to win the game to have any chance of a top two finish, a draw could have been enough. A win for Banchory and A league football for next season was cemented. 

Banchory started the game on the front foot with Trevor Glansbeek playing a good ball into Daniel Ogden however his effort was knocked just wide after three minutes, a long range shot from Ben Read was then denied by Aidan Wood. 

Nothing separated the teams in the first half with both sides playing some very good football which was good to see with Charlie Gordon Park very cut up after drainage problems at the ground. 

The visitors opened the scoring 10 minutes before the interval when Cameron McPhail was released through on goal after a good through ball and the midfielder made no mistake by guiding the ball past Wood bouncing off the post and into the back of the net. Newmachar switched off at the wrong time and Banchory made them pay.

The second half was going to be more animated than the first half, Aidan Wood was called upon again three minutes after the turnaround denying efforts from Kyle Grant then Ben Read, Wood didn't deserve to be on the losing side at all in this game. 

Newmachar then had chances of their own with a ball in by Flynn McLennan finding Kieran Smith with a free kick however Smith's header went wide in the 53rd minute. John Milne then threatened for the hosts who had a long range drive at goal just wide again. 

A throw in from Smith found Aaron Angus however a tame effort by the midfielder was denied by Brogan Coats in the Banchory goal who also had a good game doing well to keep a clean sheet. 

Banchory added a decisive second after 66 minutes when a good ball came in which was met by a low header from McPhail who knocked his header into the bottom right hand corner. 

Banchory added to their tally with two minutes left on the clock after a good ball was swung in from the right hand side from Daniel Aitken which was met by Drew Grant who headed the ball home. 

The visitors completed the scoring before the final whistle when Rhys Sim fired home a composed finish past Wood to seal A league football again for Banchory. Over the season Banchory deserved to go up and being in the B league probably helped players gain confidence again after going down last season, this result also means Stonehaven City get promotion too. Banchory sit a point above Stonehaven with two games to go.
