ADJFA Cup Final Preview 20th May 2018

Written by 

After the success of last weekend with four fantastic cup finals, the Aberdeen and District Juvenile Football Association have two mouthwatering games on the cards which will both take place at Colony Park JFC on Sunday.

The first game is at 12pm where Elite take on Lewis United Youth in the Under 13s Regional Trophy final, Lewis United Youth are involved again in the Under 16s age group at 2:30pm when they take on Banks O'Dee Albion in the Castle Trophies Final.

Ahead of the finals, YFS looks ahead to the games and the teams route to their respective cup finals.


Elite v Lewis United Under 13s


Elite FC Under 13s

Elite have only needed two games to reach the cup finals with the Regional Trophy only involving A League sides. They started their cup run against Banks O'Dee Albion who won the Colony Park Cup after a 2-1 win over Cove Youth, Elite came out victorious winning 2-1, Elite played Deveronvale at home in the semi-finals winning 3-2.

Coach Craig Sutherland looked ahead to the game by saying: "It's a great achievement for both us and Lewis United to get to the cup final in our first season at 11-a-side, we have played some tough games to get here and it's been a good cup run for us.

"It's a hard one to call, we played Lewis a few weeks ago in the league (lost 4-1) and if we can perform like we did in the first half that night then we have a chance."


Lewis United Youth Under 13s

Lewis United Youth recorded two consecutive 3-2 wins to get to the cup final, United beat Ellon Meadows in the quarter-final after extra time before winning by the same scoreline in the semi-final at Middlefield Wasps.

Coach Richard Burnett said: "We have done well this season in patches, it would be ideal to win on Sunday, it's been a good start for us and we will enjoy the occasion on Sunday.

"I'm sure Elite will be up for the game on Sunday and even more so after the scoreline the other week so I don't think we or Elite will be reading much into that result."
