Jay Harkin’s wondergoal clinched Forfar Boys the Jean Pierre Babin Cup against Celtic Boys.
Mathew Platt gave Forfar an early lead, but Celtic drew level when Imran Madugu scored from the penalty spot, before Harkin smashed in the winner from 30 yards.
Forfar came into the game with two wins against Celtic from their two league meetings, and they had the first chance of the game when Mathew Platt hit a volley from a tight angle narrowly wide of the post.
Platt would be the source of Forfar’s first goal after six minutes when he latched onto Jack Soutar’s pass and slotted the ball past Callum Angus from 10 yards.
Despite going behind, it was Celtic that were seeing most of the ball, however, they failed to ask any serious questions of Forfar keeper Kyle Shand.
Celtic’s defence switched off on 16 minutes with Platt given time and space 20 yards from goal, but the Forfar goal scorer hit the ball over the bar.
Only a goal-line clearance from Ben Cormie at a corner stopped Celtic drawing level as they continued to dominate the first half proceedings.
Dorian Ziozkolski tried to head home from close range, only to see his header knocked over by Jay Harkin, before a long ball was knocked down into Christopher Gorrie inside the Forfar box, but the Celtic defender could only drag the ball wide.
Gorrie nearly produced the equaliser in spectacular fashion as his overhit cross was tipped round the post by the retreating Shand.
Celtic were given the perfect chance to equalise when James Downie was downed by Jake Fletcher in the box. Imran Madugu stepped up and rolled the resulting penalty down the middle of the goal to draw Celtic level.
