Relegation looks on the cards for Broughty

THINGS aren’t going well for Broughty United at the bottom of the George Buckman Premier League. Even a well earned draw against Logie Harp was negated by Merpro’s unexpected win away to Carnoustie YM.

Broughty are a point behind Merpro, but have played four more games and have only three left, against NCR, Invergowrie and St James, which all look like must win games to give them any chance of avoiding relegation.
