ELGIN City swept aside a young Lossiemouth side in their first match in six months at Borough Briggs on Saturday.
Northern Scot photographer Daniel Forsyth's photos show the best of the action from Moray's big return to football.
Lossie were without several players for the match and when Ryan Stuart was pulled out of the starting line-up due to injury just before kick-off, Fraser Forbes was drafted into their team.
The Coasters conceded twice in the opening four minutes, conceded three penalties and scored two own goals on a difficult day for the Highland League outfit.
City striker Smart Osadolor opened the home account inside the first minute before Lossie defender Scott Gordon turned into his own net.
Kane Hester had a penalty saved by Lossie keeper Stewart Black before Liam Archibald fired one in at the other end to reduce the deficit.
Another Elgin penalty was converted by Osadolor and Hester made it 4-1 on the stroke of half time.
Osadolor was keen for more goals in the second half, adding three more in a ten minute spell including another penalty.
The striker was subbed on the hour and his replacement, new signing Josh Peters made an immediate impact with Elgin's eighth goal on 64 minutes.
The unlucky Ross Archibald deflected into his own net late on to complete the scoring.
