It was a windy day at North End Park, and both Fairmuir and Dundee West were fired up for a big final. Fairmuir are undefeated this season but Dundee West have also been on tremendous form.
 
The first chance of the game came early on after Zander Chaplin’s free kick rattled the cross bar from roughly thirty yards out. Another chance came soon after when Nairn Bonar made a superb dribble through the Fairmuir defence and then hit a side foot shot towards goal but Connor Reilly saved it well. 
 
Bonar found the net in the 10th minute though after receiving a great ball through from Chaplin and then smashed it into the net making it 1-0 Dundee West.
 
Dundee West scored a second in the 25th minute after the Fairmuir keeper clashed with Nairn Bonar earning a penalty. The first penalty taken by Jamie McKay smacked the post but was retaken by Jordan Conway who placed it past the keeper with confidence putting Dundee West 2-0.
 
Dundee West were the better team of the half but Fairmuir still looked dangerous when attacking, and started to pass the ball around well just before half time.

Fairmuir came into the second half the stronger side as they were pressing straight from the start. Cameron Christie hit a hard long volley which nearly dipped into the top corner but hit the top of the net. Vincent Edmonds also had a close chance after turning beautifully around a Dundee West defender but Craig Heggie saved the shot well. 
 
Cameron Christie scored a wonderful goal to get Fairmuir back into the game in the 54th minute, a superb shot from outside the box swerved right into the top corner making it 2-1.
 
Fairmuir equalised ten minutes later after Edmonds was brought down in the box and awarded a penalty. Jay Taylor placed the penalty perfectly into the back of the net bringing Fairmuir back on to level terms. 
 
The game became very even for the remainder of full time, as both teams were pressing hard for the ball and desperately trying to find a winning chance but it would have to be decided in extra time.  
  • Full Time:
  • Fairmuir BC
  • 2-2
  • Dundee West

Fairmuir did a lot of attacking but Dundee West were defending brilliantly, fighting hard for every tackle and continuing to work hard. Fairmuir were passing the ball around with confidence and were pushing for a goal. Dundee West then started getting a fair share of opportunity’s but Fairmuir still looked dangerous.

The game had to be decided in penalties, in which Fairmuir came out on top with 4-3. Fairmuir worked hard to win and deserved it, their attitude was consistent and they played some great football. Dundee West were unlucky to lose a two goal lead as they defended well but Fairmuir took their chances.
