Four goals from Jamie Timmons helped Fairmuir clinch the Queen’s Jubilee Cup. The midfielder needed just 14 minutes to complete his hat trick and netted a fourth before half time.

Mark McCrory headed in the fifth in the second half before Ewan Stewart pulled one back for Ferry with an emphatic finish, but it wasn’t enough as Fairmuir completed the league and cup double.

Both sides were looking to add a second piece of silverware to their trophy cabinets and it was Maryfield League winners Fairmuir that nearly made the perfect start to the game when Ross Hazel released Jake Grady who curled a shot against the crossbar from 15 yards.

Fairmuir were presented a golden opportunity to open the scoring when Ferry keeper Connor Milton was judged to have stepped out the box with the ball in his hands. Jamie Timmons stepped up and fired the resulting free kick past the diving Milton.

Mark McCrory went close for Fairmuir from a corner before Timmons netted his side’s second. The midfielder fired a free kick from 35 yards towards goal and the ball took a nasty bounce as it evaded Milton and ended up in the net.

Daniel Ogilvie’s curling effort brought a save out of Cammy Hendry before Hazel fired over from the edge of the Ferry box.

Timmons completed his hat trick after 21 minutes when he fired a dipping effort from 25 yards over Milton.

Louie Porter forced his way to the Fairmuir by-line, but his cut back was hooked away Alex Stewart before Jake Stewart could tap the ball home.

Two minutes before the interval, Timmons completed his hat trick of free kicks as he curled the ball past Milton from 30 yards.

Porter brought a save out of Hendry early in the second half before McCrory headed in Fairmuir’s fifth. Hazel delivered the corner and the Fairmuir captain guided the ball into the far corner of the net.

Ferry responded moments later as Ewan Stewart smacked a shot into the roof of the net from 15 yards to reduce the deficit. The striker’s game didn’t last much longer as he hobbled off through injury.

Hendry pulled off superb save to deny Louie Anderson from a corner. Anderson flicked the ball towards goal, and after the ball took a deflection on it’s way through, Hendry managed to tip the ball against the post.

After a strong showing this season, this was a disappointing end to the campaign for Ferry. Without doing much wrong, they found themselves 5-0 down, but to their credit, they kept fighting and got the goal their efforts deserved.

As for Fairmuir, after their midweek showdown with Dryburgh, there may have been a chance that they took their eyes off the ball, but it was clear early on that they were very much focused on the task in hand.

Their season isn’t over yet as they take on Glenrothes Strollers in the East Region Cup for the chance to face rivals Dryburgh in the final and add another piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet.

Jamie Timmons - Four goals in any match is a remarkable showing, but in a cup final, really is special. All four off Timmons strike were straight out of the top drawer and made a potentially tricky tie straightforward for Fairmuir.
Louie Porter - On a difficult afternoon for Ferry, Porter kept fighting and looked dangerous throughout the match.
