Broughty Athletic ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against local junior side Dundee Violet last night at the GA Arena, but the game was marred by a possible bad ankle injury to Fed reserve keeper John Sinclair.

Broughty were 2-0 up at half time courtesy of goals from Barry Myles and Matty Adam. A Ryan Suttie 30yrd strike finished the scoring midway through the second half before the injury to John Sinclair as he made a save. He was replaced for the remainder of the game by first choice keeper Iain Ross. Hopefully, more news and good news comes of John’s potential injury in due course.

Speaking with Fed manager, Keith Gibson, after the game, he had this to say on the runout…

“It was a great run out for the likes of recent new signing Kane Hester, along with James Yates, Barry Myles, Grant LawsonFrankie Lannen and Derryn Kesson who are both out on loan. We created umpteen chances but again like in our Super Leagues games we didn’t find the net more often than we should have.

Young John played well in the goal and it was sad to see him carried off before the end. An Ambulance was called and we await the full extent of his injury. He seem’s to have caught his studs in the astroturf whilst making a save. Fingers crossed it’s not serious and he’s back with us as soon as possible.

We’re off to Kelty on Saturday, looking to stop our recent run of losses, and some performances tonight have given me food for thought for my starting eleven against a very good and strong Kelty side…”
