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.
