A warm day clouded onto Ian Mair Park, Dyce for the Raymond Kelly Association Trophy final between Banks O’Dee Albion and Bervie Caledonian. This was to be the last cup final of the ADJFA season and it didn’t disappoint with six goals and both sides playing some great football.

It has been another successful season for all involved at Banks O’Dee Albion with the Presidents Cup, Castle Trophies Cup, Stonehaven Youth Trophy, Winton Trophy and the Under 16's league championship joining the Raymond Kelly Association Trophy in the cabinet at Spain Park, along with the Superleague and McLeman Cup in which Junior side Banks O’Dee have won. It doesn’t stop there though as Banks O’Dee Albion Under 14's have a league play-off with Lewis United on Tuesday night at Ian Mair Park.

Albion were quick out of the traps and it wasn’t long before they were getting themselves on the scoresheet. A great ball came into Adam McLennan and he slotted the ball into the bottom right hand corner past Fraser McNaught.

Bervie did have some good spells in the game and tested the Albion defence on a few occasions. Murray Collie had a great long range strike, which went straight into the arms of Cameron Jarvie.

Matt Cumming made it 2-0 to Banks O’Dee, after a great ball from Oscar Slater found the striker, and he finished excellently after firing the ball down the middle.

Albion then put the game to bed, just before the interval, after a great ball in, from Ryan Silvers, was met by Finlay Johnston who rose highest and nodded the ball past McNaught.

Albion didn’t stop as the second half got underway. They made it 4-0 within 6 minutes of the half after another good ball came in from Slater, which was met by McLennan who tucked away his second of the game.

Bervie Caledonian gave a good account of themselves for their first final but Banks O’Dee Albion's experience showed. They did, however, manage to grab a consolation goal with 10 minutes to play after a good delivery from Euan Turner found Gregor McHardy, who headed in past Jarvie.

Adam McLennan had a great game for Albion and he got himself a hat-trick after a mistake in the Bervie backline. He pounced and was then on hand to slot the ball into an empty net.

Albion goalie Cameron Jarvie has been with the Spain Park outfit for the last five years and has improved year-on-year. He is a very vocal guy, a good stopper, and his presence helped Banks O’Dee not only in this game but throughout the last five years.

It was a good victory for Albion after the disappointments of the week before in the Noskab Trophy defeat to Fraserburgh Link-Up. It will help them as they look ahead to next season when they will be fielding an Under 19's team for the first time in a while.

Cameron Jarvie, Banks O'Dee Albion goalkeeper, said "It was a well deserved win, we have played some good football and scored some good goals which we have done all season really.

"Last Sunday hurt a lot, it was an awful week however we set the record straight after that and we fully deserved a cup.

"The boys are going onto Under 19s next season however I'm not and I wish the boys all the best, it's been a great five years personally here at Albion and I would like to thank everyone involved from 13s to 17s it's been great.
