Wick Academy got their 23rd League campaign off to the best possible start beating visitors Turriff United by two goals to nil. Steven Anderson powered home a bullet header after only 4 minutes and Richard Macadie doubled the advantage a minute from the half-time break. Turriff rarely threatened the Wick goal throughout the 90 minutes.

Prior to kick-off a minutes silence was observed for long-standing Academy committee member George Ross.

Academy started on the front-foot and in the 4th minute Sam Mackay swung in a cross from the left flank. Turriff defenders doubled up on Steven Anderson but they couldn't prevent him rising highest and from 12 yards out he powered home his header under the cross-bar passed the outstretched Kevin Main.

1 - 0

Richard Macadie and Sam Mackay both had half-chances which they fired high of target before Mackay had a great opportunity to double the lead. Good play in the middle of the park between Davie Allan and James Pickles saw Mackay being released through the middle of the Turriff defence. He ran into the box one-on-one with keeper Main but fired straight into Main's body.

Academy didn't give Turriff a sniff in the first half with McCarthy making comfortable work of the little he had to do. Allen MacKenzie had a go from 25 yards out but his attempt whistled passed the outside of the post.

A minute before the half-time break good Academy pressure saw the ball worked into the Turriff box by Gary Manson. Several Academy players looked to have shooting chances as Turriff failed to clear. Steven Anderson had his attempt blocked before it eventually fell to Richard Macadie in the middle of the penalty area and he made no mistake firing passed the hand of Main and into his bottom left hand corner of the net.

2 - 0

Half Time - Wick Academy 2 - Turriff United 0

Richard Macadie had a shot that sliced off his boot and went just wide of target before Sam Mackay came close with a free-kick that only just flew over the intersection of post and cross-bar as Academy looked to increase their advantage.

Turriff continued to struggle to make any chances of note with the Academy back line repelling them on almost every occasion they advance forward.

The nearest they really came was from a powerful 25 yard drive from Robert Allan that went straight into the arms of McCarthy.

Richard Macadie set up a good chance for Davie Allan but his attempt flashed just passed the outside of the post.

Having made all of their substitutions Turriff finished the final minutes with only 10 men when Andrew Smith picked up an injury and couldn't continue.

Full Time - Wick Academy 2 - Turriff United 0

So a solid performance from Academy getting a win under their belt against an often difficult opponent. It's now on to face Formartine United at North Lodge Park next Saturday.
