Matches between Dyce and Albion at this age group has gotten more even and more enjoyable to watch for the neutral and the ADJFA heavyweights served up another great game with Albion left to rue missed chances which Dyce made them pay via a penalty shoot-out.

It was a lovely day in Dyce for the final and also a fantastic surface for both the teams to play their football on and it made for an exciting game.

Albion started out of the traps and forward Tyler Ogston had a 35 yard drive towards goal which made Morgan Cook work and it crashed against the crossbar and over the top.

The Scottish Cup runners up then tried another long range strike this time through midfielder Mitchell Cheyne this time from 20 yards which just went inches wide.

Dyce then started to get into the game from the 20th minute and it saw Josh Milne try a cheeky lob to open the deadlock after good work in the lead up which went over the top.

Milne's strike partner Cameron McArthur then had a free kick from 25 yards which sailed towards goal which just went over. This game could have seen more goals if they had hit the back of the net.

Half Time: Dyce BC 0-0 Albion BC

The 1st real chance of the 2nd half resulted in a goal after Jack Odlin put a great ball into Dyce's territory which was met by midfielder Liam Morrison who perfectly guided it home past Cook in the Dyce goal.

It was to open the game up and just 2 minutes later Dyce were back level after Ryan Silvers tried a spectacular effort from 20 yards which found the top right hand corner which evaded the Albion defence and Jarvie.

After the goal Dyce were looking to be the better team attacking wise and it saw Dyce's two forwards Josh Milne and Cameron McArthur link up when Milne linked the ball into McArthur who turned an Albion defender before unleashing an effort which just went over the bar.

Albion re took the lead when Mitchell Cheyne played in a great ball which was met by Finlay Johnson who placed the ball past Cook in the Dyce goal.

Dyce's two forwards linked up once again with McArthur's corner was met by Milne but his header just went over the top. Dyce were going to be given a real let off soon.

That was because Albion got a penalty in the 63rd minute which was taken by Tyler Ogston. However Morgan Cook guessed where Ogston was going to go and came out with a point blank save as the former Dee BC striker aimed for going straight down the middle.

Albion had missed a number of chances during the game and the penalty save took away Albion's luck. Dyce were to get lucky though in the 66th minute when Cameron McAthur played a neat lay-off into Cameron Duncan, who calmly placed his shot in the bottom left hand corner.

Full Time: Dyce BC 2-2 Albion BC

Albion had the first chance of extra time when Mitchell Cheyne once again tried his luck in front of goal with a 40 yard drive which just went over the top of Morgan Cook's goal.

Josh Milne then tried to get his side in front with a calm shot after he forced his way past Fraser Gordon and his effort went a whisker wide of the right hand post.

No goal was found during extra time, so it went to penalties and Dyce's Craig Gill was first to step up. The skipper tucked the ball away with composure before Mitchell Cheyne found the bottom left hand corner with his.

Ryan Silvers put Dyce in front again with his spot kick before Dyce were to push ahead when Morgan Cook saved from Albion's next effort.

Both sides missed their next penalty, before Albion missed their fourth which meant Cameron McArthur was able to step up and win the Eddie Mannell Trophy for Dyce for the third year. He put it away with ease and sparked Dyce's celebrations.
