Cove BC manager Ludie Barrack today said that it would be the icing on the cake if they were to be promoted into the A league come the end of the season.
Barrack was speaking after Cove's shock 7-2 win over Fraserburgh Link-Up in the Trans Athletic Scottish Cup 2nd round. "The boys deserve something at the end of the season as in the last few years we have reached the 5th round of the Scottish cup and the cups really are just a bonus and we have missed out on the league in the last couple of seasons."
"The boys were gutted to miss out on promotion last season however we have a season to build on it and that will be our aim, we've started the season well and we are currently unbeaten after winning games against Formartine, Culter Boys and Culter Colts and they've been tight games."
Last season Cove travelled down to Fife to face Forth Royals and came away 6-1 winners and Barrack added that they would be looking for an away tie in the next round however they are just delighted that they have progressed into the next round.
"We are just happy to be in the next round so really whoever we get we will be chuffed about but an away trip is always good and a good day out for the players."
Ludie also added about the game and said "We're delighted with the victory, anybody watching the game today would have enjoyed it, it was quite a physical game, the scoreline flatters us slightly however it was a good victory against a strong Fraserburgh outfit, we had two bookings which is probably for off the ball incidents however I praise the boys for not getting stuck into opposition players."
"We are only taking it one game at a time and hopefully we can get points on the board, it will be a competitive league this season and there will be so many teams like us who will be trying to get promoted this season".
Drew Canale put Cove a goal in front after just 3 minutes with a low drive in what started a goal frenzy. Ritchie Lamb, Nicky Lynch, Robert Wilson, Kyle Bilsland and Cammy Smith also found the net and Drew Canale picked up a brace in what was a convincing display for Cove. Marc Summers and Jacob Tait scored consolations for the Broch.
