Hibs came from behind to wrap up the double as they defeated Aberdeen at Hampden Park to win the Scottish Youth Cup.
A Ryan Poretous header either side of a Joe MacPherson own goal and a Jamie Gulan tap in ensured Hibs returned to Leith with another trophy, as they capped off a brilliant season under new head coach Grant Murray.
Fans turned out in good numbers to watch the youngsters as Aberdeen looked to win their first youth cup since 2001, whereas Hibs were looking to make it a second trophy for the season having already won the SPFL Development League earlier this month.
Both sides started frantically as they looked to get used to the wide park at the national stadium with Hibs defender Calum Donaldson firing wide after getting on the end of an excellent Sean Mackie cross. It was Aberdeen in the 16th minute to score first however, as winger Conor McLennan somehow managed to work his way past the Hibs backline, before placing his shot beyond Maciej Dabrowski.
Hibs were still well in this game and had their best chance of the match when Fraser Murray’s spectacular effort cracked the post from 25 yards out. Fraser Murray was to have his say in the Hibs equalizer. His cross from the left hand side turned in by unlucky Aberdeen defender Joe MacPherson to draw the game level.
