Blairgowrie YFC Under 13s
Stanley Socca Under 13s
Competition: Christopher Walker Memorial Cup - Final
Venue: Fair City Ground
Date: 13/05/2012
Blairgowrie headed for Fair City Ground in Perth to play Stanley Socca in the Christopher Walker Memorial Cup Final and again it was a thrilling encounter. 
Blairgowrie dominated possession in the first half but with no real clear-cut chances the teams went in at the break goalless. 
Into the second half and Blairgowrie were in great form and when Ryan Robertson rounded his marker he was upended in the box and the referee pointed to the spot. Dee-Jay Tolmie stepped up and hammered the ball into the bottom corner giving Blair a deserved lead. 
Blair kept up the pressure but couldn't find that second goal and when Stanley got their chance the ball ended up in the net and it looked like it could be penalties. 
Blair Boys never say die attitude had them back in front just sixty seconds later when Ryan Robertson played in Ryan Beedie and he cut back inside before slamming the ball past the Stanley keeper. 
Blairgowrie played the game out and were unlucky not to score again and when the final whistle went the boys started the celebrations it was a great achievement to win their first cup, playing in their first cup final. 
Manager Gavin Tolmie said: "He was so happy for the boys and that they thoroughly deserved it for their hard work over the season." 
Blairgowrie Under 13s now play Scone in a league fixture on Tuesday 15th May.
Full Time: Blairgowrie YFC Under 13s 1-1 Stanley Socca Under 13s
