Drumchapel United saw of the challenge of South Camlachie to secure the Golden Goals Cup at Shettleston Juniors Park. A hat trick from Ryan Tiffney helped Drumchapel to see off Camlachie in a game which could be described as having everything, from fast flowing football to more of a battle.
The game started as at a frantic pace, with Drumchapel earning three corners, one which forced a decent save from Camlachie’s Darren McNeill. However the quick start paid off as they took the lead after ten minutes. Drumchapel played down the right, and a decent cross Liam Kerrigan caused in decision in the Camlachie defence. Ryan Tiffney put pressure on the defence and it caused Daryl Still put into his own net.
Drumchapel gained confidence from their goal and shortly after doubled their advantage. A corner from the left was knocked down by captain Daniel Boyle and Ryan Tiffney smashed in. Camlachie were angry before the goal, as it seemed the linesman had flagged for a goal kick, something which the referee seemed to overrule.
Camlachie regrouped and nearly got a goal back, but Ntaba Mashimango was wasteful after running clear but his control let him down and nothing came from it. Drumchapel were also wasteful after Daniel Boyle won the ball in the middle of the park, his ball found Calum Young, and after taking advantage of a lack of attention from the Camlachie defence he ran through but shot over.
Camlachie got back into the game just before the half hour mark. More indecision, this time in the Drumchapel defence, gave Ryan McLean the chance, and he rounded Conor O’Boyle and slotted home. 
Camlachie nearly found themselves on level terms shortly after, but after good work from Ryan McLean, Edward Ferns was given the ball but when in the box his shot was this time saved by Conor O’Boyle. 
Drumchapel made them pay as Ryan Tiffney scored on the stroke of half time. A break down the left from James McCluskey whose cut back found Ryan Tiffney, who after fainting to shoot stroked in an empty net.
Half Time: Drumchapel United Under 21s 3-1 South Camlachie Under 21s
After the break, Drumchapel could have wrapped up the game. Steven Davies ball down the left found James McCluskey, who cut inside the box and passed to Ryan Tiffney but his shot was saved fantastically by Darren McNeill. 
Camlachie had their chances in a game which seemed to become a little flat but firstly Edward Ferns could only find the side netting, and then Stuart Mills blazed over after good work from Edward Ferns and Ryan McLean, who then showed his team mates how it was done. On seventy five minutes, Ryan McLean latched onto a through ball and expertly finished with both composure and style.
Camlachie had the confidence, but Drumchapel finished it off with ten minutes to go. Daniel Boyle’s header went into the box and Ryan Tiffney challenged the keeper and after the ball bounced Darren McNeill pulled back Ryan Tiffney, much to the disagreement of Camlachie. Ryan Tiffney sent the keeper the wrong way to secure his hat trick. They hung on and were able to secure the Golden Goals Cup!
