U17's Scottish Cup
The game started slow with only one real chance falling to Bayside, which was cleared off the line not once but twice by Stuart Thomson. The half ended 0-0.

In contrast the second half exploded into life when Bayside went 1-0 up through their number 3 who scored from a corner after failing to be picked up the opposition defence. However Forfar hit back with a lovely cross from Ronnie Anderson landing perfectly on Ryan Kennedy's head and into the net. 1-1.

After missing a one on one just moments before, Ryan Kennedy for the second time was played through on goal by Matthew Florence and this time made no mistake with the finish, putting it through the keeper's legs. 

It was made 3-1 to the visitors after Stuart Townd closed down a pass back to the Bayside keeper and when the keeper tried to clear it, the ball hit Stuart's shin pad and bulleted into the net.

The game was over when Ronnie Anderson, fresh back from a knee injury chipped the keeper from outside the box making it 4-1.

After a slow start to the game, it was a well-deserved win for Forfar in a game where both teams knocked the ball about well all over the pitch.

Full time: Bayside 1-4 Forfar
