Match Preview

Duo missing for Red Lichties Champions Arbroath will be without suspended midfielder Keith Gibson and centre-back Alan Rattray for the visit of Elgin. Rattray remains on the sidelines through injury, but it will matter little as the Red Lichties have already won the Third Division. Indeed, they will receive the trophy at the end of the game from Scottish Football League chief executive David Longmuir. Gayfield boss Paul Sheerin is determined to end the season on a high, especially after last Saturday's 3-0 defeat by Annan. He said: "Last weekend we will put down a blip where Annan started the game in far more determined fashion than we did. "We never recovered from that but I am sure that the sense of occasion with the first trophy in the club's history being presented will motivate us for this one." Goalkeeper John Calder is out for Elgin because of a knee injury. Boss Ross Jack has also ruled out full-back Allan Dempsie through a knock, while Blair Lawrie, Steven Edwards and Paul Miller are unavailable due to commitments outside of football. Defender Jamie Duff along with midfielders Neil MacDonald and Jake Inglis face late fitness tests to determine their availability. Jack said:" We only played for the second half against Berwick last weekend and we will not get away with that against Arbroath. "They will be determined to end the season on a high in a Gala occasion but I am looking for the Elgin players to spoil the party for 90 minutes at least."

Match Report

Gormley treble stuns champions David Gormley registered a hat-trick as Elgin secured a 5-3 victory over champions Arbroath. The home side opened the scoring when Paul Sheerin slotted home Adam Strachan's cross in the 28th minute. Elgin equalised 10 minutes later with Gormley smashing high into the net from inside the area before he put his side ahead on the stroke of half-time, guiding the ball home from the edge of the area from Brian Cameron's pass. Gavin Swankie equalised for Arbroath five minutes into the second half, unleashing a 30-yard volley to send the home fans into raptures. Craig Gunn replied, however, in the 55th minute as he powered a shot past goalkeeper Darren Hill from 25 yards. Gormley claimed his hat-trick when he turned in Craig Frizzel's header across goal on the 62nd minute before Josh Falkingham pulled one back for Arbroath when Swankie picked him out in the area 10 minutes later. Nevertheless, Jason Crooks completed the scoring from the spot with 11 minutes remaining after Paul Kaczan was brought down in the box by Stuart Malcolm.
