St Andrews Colts survived a late scare from Maryfield United to clinch the Mac Brown Cup and end the club's 24-year wait for silverware. Gary McDermott and Harry Martin had the Fife side two to the good, but Joe Wallace pulled one back for Maryfield late on.
Harry Paul put St Andrews 3-1 up but there was enough time remaining for Innes Urquhart to pull back another goal for Maryfield, but it wasn’t enough as Saints clinched the cup.
St Andrews had taken just one point from their two league matches against Maryfield but got off to the perfect start when Gary McDermott opened the scoring after six minutes. Harry Paul delivered a free kick from the right that was misjudged by Maryfield keeper Aiden Stewart, which allowed McDermott to force the ball over the line from close range.
Aiden Stewart made amends for his error at the goal two minutes later when he denied Callum West. Harry Martin released West, but Stewart denied him one-on-one.
Both sides were trying to find their rhythm after a frantic opening to the match, meaning clear-cut chances were at a premium. Evin Stewart dragged a shot wide after a solo run, while at the other end, Paul curled a shot into the arms of Aiden Stewart.
