Inverurie Locos followed up on their fine win over Formartine United by scoring four for the second Saturday in a row against Fort William, this time without reply.

The Harlaw Park side eventually got the opening goal in 23 minutes, with the trialist Fort William goalkeeper ineffective in his attempts to save a weak Jordan LEYDEN effort.
