In a well fought Castles Trophy final, Lewis United Youth lifted the silverware with a 3-1 win over Fraserburgh Link-Up YFC. Ross Grant scored Fraserburgh’s goal while Ross Young scored two of Lewis’s goals with Shaun Spence adding the third.
Lewis United pressed from the kick-off and Ben Marr put the ball into the box for Ross Young who shot at goal but the ball was headed clear by Ben Harvey.
The Bridge of Don-based team then had a chance from a free kick at thirty yards. Robert Ward sent the ball into the box but it was caught by Fraserburgh goalkeeper, Jack Kennedy.
Fraserburgh looked just as dangerous when they had possession, and Ewan Milne broke through the defence but Cameron Heslop swept in to clear the danger before Milne could make his shot at goal.
However Fraserburgh set up some great link-up play through Andrew Hannah and Adam Taylor. Taylor then put the ball into the box for Ross Grant but his shot was denied by Lewis goalkeeper, Matthew Buckham.
Both teams were attacking the game and Lewis were awarded a free kick five yards into their own half. Murray Esson’s impressive strike sent the ball into the box but it was headed clear by Thomas Hall before Ward could run on.
Lewis United continued to exert pressure and Ward shot from twenty-five yards. He was only denied by Kennedy who pushed the ball wide but Young was there and he tapped it in from close range to open the scoring in the twenty-fourth minute.
Ward looked set to extend his side’s lead through a free kick from thirty-five yards but he fired his shot just over the crossbar.
Grant then drove forward for Fraserburgh and he crossed the ball into the box for Billy Bruce but Bruce’s shot went wide.
Fraserburgh continued to press, and Hall put the ball through for Milne. Milne laid the ball back for Grant but Esson swept in to clear the danger.
However Fraserburgh continued to create chances and Grant put the ball into space for Milne just outside the box but Lewis held their defence to deny a scoring chance and Heslop cleared.
Ward and Young linked once again for Lewis and Ward sent the ball to the edge of the box. Young slipped past the defence to run onto it and sent it home from close range to extend his side’s lead in the fortieth minute.
Fraserburgh tried to create one last chance before half-time with Bruce pressing forward but he was tripped. Hannah stepped up to take the free kick just outside the box but sent the ball over the crossbar.
