CLACHNACUDDIN suffered a nightmare start to the Highland League campaign as they were railroaded by Inverurie Locos at Harlaw Park.
Inverurie took the lead midway through the first half as Mark Souter scored with a header with Andrew Watt doubling their advantage four minutes later with a close range effort.
Locos went three-up eight minutes into the second half as Kieran Shanks' thunderous shot rattled off the underside of the crossbar and over the line.
Five minutes later Robert Ward made it 4–0 and grabbed his second in the 89th minute to send the Lilywhites joint bottom of the table on goal difference.
