Luthermuir defeated as Vics win opening friendly

Arbroath Vics’ first pre-season friendly saw them travel north to meet Luthermuir Amateurs who play in the Aberdennshire Premier League on Saturday.

An 18 strong squad, boosted by several trialists, saw Vics return home with a 5-0 win.

Doubles from Kane Hester, (12 and 25 minutes) and Mark Fotheringham, (20 and 41 minutes) had Vics four goals ahead by the interval. Although Vics dominated for most of the second period, they were restricted to only one more goal, a 20 yard free kick from a trialist striker 10 minutes from the end.

Vics continue their preparations for the forthcoming season with a home match against Aberdeen junior side, FC Stoneywood tomorrow (Saturday). Kick-off is at 2.30 p.m.
