Adam Brown’s last minute header secured Ferry Yellows the inaugural East Region Cup. Connor Parkes’ goal had put 10-man Kelty in front, but Rory Faulkner brought Ferry level before Kelty were reduced to nine men.
Ferry suffered cup final heartache against Forfar West End on Sunday and were struggling to cope with Kelty early on. Ferry keeper Elliot Smith was called into action after four minutes as he pushed Ewan Ross’ free kick over the bar. Blair Whyte had Ferry’s first chance, as his effort was saved by Macaulay Jarrett after seven minutes.
Adam Brown had a golden chance for Ferry after 15 minutes. The striker beat Jarrett to a loose ball, but despite rounding the keeper, saw his shot smothered by the recovering goalie.
Cameron Hoskins nearly scored one of the goals of the season, but was denied by the woodwork. The striker hooked the ball towards goal, and despite the ball looking like it would loop over the bar, it came crashing off the underside of the bar before bouncing on the line and being cleared.
Kelty were dominating the midfield, as Ferry struggled to get a foothold in the game. Elliot Smith did well to keep out Declan Boyle’s well hit free kick.
A Ferry counter attack saw Brown fire wide after 36 minutes. Two minutes later, Kelty were reduced to 10-men as Calvin Fisher was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
