National Competitions (651)

In the middle of March hundreds of teams were harbouring dreams of lifting the coveted SWF Scottish Cup Trophy in November. This weekend we will see the final four compete for that special place at Oriam for the Scottish Cup Final.
In all age groups, the talent and effort on show has been tremendous and everyone competing in Glasgow on Saturday has well and truly earned their place in this stage of the competition.
YFS is happy to be able to provide coverage for what is sure to be an unforgettable day of football. Let’s take a look now at the matches on show this weekend.
Central Girls Legends vs Hamilton Academical U13
In their respective regions, both of these teams have been unstoppable. Central Girls Legends contested the Central League Cup Final against their sister team Central Girls Jaguars, and secured a big win, whilst Hamilton lifted the South West trophy with their triumph over FC Kilmarnock Blues.
These two have proven themselves to be terrific teams and picking between the two is an unenviable task. There is however one thing, if previous semi-finals of the U13s age group are to go by, that these two should be able to deliver. Goals.
The previous match between these two in the Kim Little League saw Accies run out narrow 2-1 winners. Expect another close game at Lesser Hampden.

Quarter Final – Raith Rovers (A) – 2-7
Donside Girls vs Celtic FC U13
Last season Donside Girls U13’s beat a strong Musselburgh Windsor side in last year’s final to capture glory and will be looking to repeat their exploits this time around.
The Aberdeenshire side will also be looking to put their defeat in the final of the North Region Cup last month behind them and give themselves another shot at silverware.
They face a Celtic side riding high after their convincing West Region Cup final victory over St Mirren. A Scottish Cup win would be the icing on the cake in an already successful season for the Hoops, but they will need to be at their best to defeat the reigning champions.
Donside Girls
Prelim Round – Glenburn MW (H) – 3-0
1st Round – Bayside 13’s Braves (A) – 5-0

Hearts FC vs Rangers U15
Hearts go into this game knowing that they will have to beat last season’s U15 champions in order to book their place at Oriam. The Jambos were beaten semi-finalists in the U15’s Performance League Cup semi-final and will be hoping to go one better as they aim for the crown of Scottish Champions.
Rangers were impressive in last season’s final against Hibernian and will be looking for an equally professional performance this Saturday. They’ve shown good form in this competition so far, having secured their semi-final place with an impressive win over Performance League Cup winners Boroughmuir Thistle.
Hearts FC
1st Round – BYE
2nd Round – Banchory United (Withdrawn)
3rd Round – Musselburgh Windsor (A) – 4-0

2nd Round – Aberdeen FCL Reds (A) – 4-1
3rd Round – FC Kilmarnock Performance (H) 5-4
Quarter Finals – Boroughmuir Thistle (H) 2-0
Lanarkshire Hibs vs Celtic U15
Lanarkshire Hibs will go into this game knowing that it can go either way and that only their best will be enough to book their place in this years’ final. They and Celtic both share a win over each other in this year’s Performance League, but will be confident of their capabilities going into this important game at Toryglen.
Celtic fell out of the competition at this stage to bitter rivals Rangers and know that winning this weekend could potentially set up an Old Firm final. The Hoops lost their last encounter with Hibs, but will be confident of advancing to Oriam.
Lanarkshire Hibs

Aberdeen FCL vs Rangers FC U17
Aberdeen have had an excellent season so far and a Scottish Cup trophy would be the perfect way to round off the season. The Dons are the Performance League Cup champions and currently sit atop the Performance League table.
Rangers have yet to pick up a win over Aberdeen this season and the matches between the two have been extremely close. Anyone watching on Saturday can expect an close encounter and a really good game.
Aberdeen FCL
1st Round – BYE
2nd Round – Broxburn Athletic (H) – 7-1
Quarter Finals – Dunfermline (A) – 8-0

Quarter Finals – Murieston United (H) – 11-2
Celtic FC vs Dryburgh Athletic U17
Celtic go into this match on fine form. They have only lost one game in the Performance League so far this season and will certainly fancy their chances on Saturday. However they will have to be at their very best if they hope to beat their opponents this weekend.
Dryburgh Athletic were well beaten in the final of this competition last year by Glasgow City, but gained a measure of revenge by beating City in the third round of this competition. Having already clinched the SWF South East title, they’ll be keen to book another trip to Oriam this year.
Celtic FC

Airdrie: Rhys Park
Airdrieonians were extremely depleted heading into the game with only 12 to select from with a player unavailable, alongside two players who were cup tied. Rhys however was a positive for Airdrieonians Real, showing some good touches alongside linking up with other players during the game.

Rhys also got forward whenever he could and had one of very limited opportunities for Airdrie. Rhys also tried to defend and put in a lot of effort against a pacy and very forward thinking Dyce BC Blues Under 13s outfit.
Rhys will be disappointed with the outcome however he should look at a strong performance from his perspective and turn a disappointment into a positive going forward. It will be a tough defeat to take however if his attitude and application remains to a high standard then he will move on and become a stronger player in the future.

Dyce: Matt McFarlane

After an unsettled first period, Matt showed why he is a fantastic striker and a great finisher with a good eye for goal, the Dyce management team decided to place Matt in midfield for the first half however a tactical change at half time saw Matt move to striker which is his normal position and the big decision reaped it's rewards.
Matt gave the Airdrie defence something different to worry about in the second period and scored a fantastic first goal from a tight angle giving David Milligan no chance. The fact that McFarlane placed the ball into the bottom right hand corner from that tight angle speaks volumes about the type of finish it was.

McFarlane also scored a good second goal towards the business end of the game after getting into a great position before tucking the ball home. McFarlane helped his team mates throughout the duration of the game with a lack of quality pass the only difference between Dyce not being more of a threat in the first half.
In the second half, McFarlane showed why he is a quality player and he certainly helped the team with a deserved Scottish Cup success, only the second time at Under 13s level that an ADJFA side has won the Scottish Cup. This is a special Dyce team and Matt certainly ticks all the boxes to help make this team special.


Tynecastle against Musselburgh was a fine example of contrasting styles, and the tightness of the game showed both teams knew their strengths. While back fours were a common bond, their attacking formations were starkly contrasting. Tynecastle’s 4-4-1-1 was designed to maintain a solid midfield foundation, with balls then pushed wide to encourage crosses. Windsor, conversely, lined up with a forward triumvirate - one central, two wide - with a supporting and flexible midfield three behind.

That Tynecastle took the lead from a cross, parried kindly into midfielder Callum Todd’s path, was not surprising. However Musselburgh were soon launching their own weapons. Josh Murray was the central prong, while Daniel Combe had moments of great success on the left.

Yet the real damage came on the right where Robert Hunter was allowed to roam in from his wing, with tireless midfielder Tyler Pryde filling in the vacated space. Both players were to have superb games, and indeed combined for their side’s second goal.

Substitutes to begin the second half did shift the tactics somewhat, as Tynecastle moved Corin Brown from the right wing to centre forward, put new man Sam Kilboy out wide, and withdrew Elijah Anukum. Musselburgh, meanwhile, made more dramatic switches as Hunter came off for a break, Murray went deep, Finn Thomson became the striker, and Pryde pushed further forward.

Continuity paid dividends as Tynecastle became the better team, rustling up chance after chance. And then falling behind. Pryde’s running got him up the wing and Hunter, back on and up front, took the chance.

It cannot be said that Tynecastle got their tactics wrong; it was occasionally hard to fathom how they were not two goals ahead rather than one behind. But in tightly contested games cold brutal finishing can be the difference. A remedy appeared to arrive just in time as Koren Brown’s free kick in the final minute equalised, making it probably the most clutch swing of a boot in the entire game.

However this only forced extra time, where Musselburgh’s decisive quality - righteous passion - became the deciding factor. Liam Henderson and Pryde charged around the pitch as if their flesh were on fire, offering performances to match Windsor’s vociferous support in the stands. Windsor were not individuals, or even a team, but a community, and Henderson’s winner proved how strong that can be.

Back in September 2018 hundreds of teams from across the country began their Scottish Cup journeys and now, for each age group, we finally have our finalists.
The road to May's showpiece event in Airdrie has been a long and challenging one for all teams involved and YFS has been privilaged to be along for the journey. Congratulations to this year's inspiresport Scottish Youth FA Cup finalists and good luck in May!

Sunday 19th May, 2:00pm
Airdrieonians Real BC

The Hope CBD Stadium, home to Hamilton Academical FC, wil play host to an all Central affair in the semi-finals of the U13's Scottish Youth FA Cup as Lanarkshire Football Development Association side Blantyre SA Gold host Central Scotland Football Association side Airdrieonians Real BC.
Both teams are in fine form and have enjoyed a good run in the competition up to this point. Here's hoping that they can put on a terrific match this Sunday.
Blantyre are having a good season so far in the LFDA. They are still in contention for the A League title, they currently sit in fifth place, seven points behind EK Burgh United in first and exited the Central Region cup at the quarter final stage, losing 3-2 at home in a closely-contested tie against Milton FC.
Airdrieonians have had an equally impressive season after a blip in the quarter-finals of the League Cup against Clarkston Athletic earlier in the season.
They also find themselves in title contention this season. They are currently in third place in the CSFA A League, eight points behind leaders ES Galaxy and have a Central Region cup semi-final to look forward to against Scotland BC.
Let's now have a look at each sides route to the semis:
Blantyre SA Gold
Blantyre had a bye in the first round and went straight into the second, where they were drawn against Larkhall Thistle. It proved to be a straightforward victory for the Lanarkshire side, securing a 5-1 win to advance to round three.
An away tie was next up as they came up against Kildrum United. This turned into quite the high-scoring affair, but it was Blantyre who booked their place in the fourth round, winning 5-2.
The fourth round saw the Golds book their place in the final 32 with relative ease. They blew away Bervie Caley Youth, putting seven goals past them unanswered.
Round five drew up another away tie for Blantyre, this time against Oban Saints. This proved to be a decent test for the LFDA side and one they came through with flying colours, securing a 4-1 triumph.
Into the last 16 and another away tie was set up against Sons of Struth. This proved to be Blantyre's biggest test and they had to be at their very best as they secured a 2-0 victory.
This set up a quarter-final tie at the CBD Stadium against DDYFA side Monifieth Athletic. The Golds went behind in this game but showed great character to come from behind and book their semi-final place with a 3-1 win.
Airdrieonians Real BC
Like their opponents this Sunday, Airdrieonians were given a bye into the second round and were paired up against a strong East End Thistle side. It only took one goal to separate the two on the day and it was Real who ended up getting it.
Edinburgh side Bonnyrigg Rose Reds were next up for Real at home. This proved to be a more straightforward tie for the CSFA side and a 4-0 win secured safe passage into round four.
Another professional performance was needed to get past Dyce BC Whites. The Aberdeenshire side had travelled a long way to play the tie and were just unable to cope with Airdrieonians quality as they made round five with a 3-0 win.
Drumchapel United were next up and it was here that Real really showed their scoring prowess. An outstanding 8-0 win highlighted their cup ambitions as they prepared for the last 16.
Round six saw another home tie, this time against Carluke United. This proved to be their biggest test since their triumph over East End Thistle and, just as in the second round, they came through once again with a 2-0 win.
The quarter final match drew them up against a strong St Patrick's Sports Academy. It was here that Airdrieonians conceeded their first goal of the competition, but as they have shown in the previous rounds, they had the quality to come back from that set back, booking their semi-final place with a 3-1 win.
All of the semi finals for the Scottish Youth FA Cup have now officially been announced.
