A penalty, courtesy of Paul McLellan, was enough to win the points in Broughty’s opening game of the season at home to visitors Sauchie.

The winning goal came after 15mins when Fed striker Kevin Milne was upheld in the box and McLellan stepped up and slammed the ball home. Despite several other chances for the home side and some great goalkeeping from the Sauchie keeper, Broughty held out comfortably for the points as Sauchie were reduced to ten men late in the second half.
