ADJFA Cup Finals Preview 2nd/3rd June 2018

Written by 

The curtain on the 2017-2018 ADJFA season will be closed on Sunday afternoon and there is three cracking cup finals this weekend to close off what has been a fantastic season at all age groups.


Hermes Youth v Inverurie Locos Under 19s

Hermes Youth and Inverurie Loco Works have both had some really tight games this season and this Saturday will be no different. Hermes recorded a 3-0 win at Inverurie back in February on league duty however Inverurie rectified matters with a 2-1 cup win a few weeks later.

Inverurie won the last league meeting between the sides which turned out to be influential in their search for the league. Inverurie won the league whilst Hermes finished third so it will be hard to call a winner on the day. This game is the Sunnybank Shield final and will be a 12pm kick off on Saturday at Heathryfold Park.


Colony Park v Fraserburgh Link-Up Under 16s

The Under 16s A League is arguably the most competitive league in ADJFA football with both Colony and Fraserburgh beating Lewis United and Banks O’Dee Albion respectively in the semi-finals, Colony finished the season in 4th with Fraserburgh ending in sixth.

Fraserburgh have won both league meetings this season winning 3-2 and 2-1 respectively however it’s a cup final and anything can happen. The Presidents Cup final kicks off at 2:30pm on Saturday at Heathryfold Park, the ground is a very notable one for Colony Park having won there last year beating Banks O’Dee Albion in the Belmont Trophy final.

This is Fraserburgh Link Ups first cup final since the 1999 team back in 2016 who beat Banks O’Dee Albion in the Noskab Trophy final.


Westdyke CC v Banks O’Dee Albion Under 14s

Westdyke CC already got the double in the bag and Ellis Renforth’s men have the perfect opportunity to make it three out of three when they play Banks O’Dee Albion on Sunday.

Take nothing away from Banks O’Dee Albion though; they might be on a poor run of late however anything can happen in a cup final and Bruce McGregor’s side will be keen to end the season on a high.

The game kicks off at 1pm at Charlie Gordon Park, Newmachar on Sunday in the Eddie Mannall Trophy.
