Albion were refreshed after their 3-0 win over Broomhill Juniors on Sunday and they faced a Colony Park team who were making there cup final debut as a team and there the only team to take points off the Scottish Cup Champions this season.
The Aberdeen side made 3 changes from the 3-0 win over Broomhill with Devin Kennedy Colbert, Darren Sinclair and Chris Liversedge all coming in for James Gibb, Jack Smith and Kyle Bridger and the changes worked for the Albion bench as they romped to a 5-2 win.
Colony had the thick of the chances early on and had a golden chance to take the lead when Greg Wood's 20 yard effort just went whiskers wide of the left hand post.
Albion paid them off though and took the lead when Macaulay Rae's free kick was not cleared properly by the Colony defence and Darren Sinclair rose above all else to put Albion a goal to the good.
The Aberdeen side had another chance when Devin Kennedy Colbert's corner was just headed over the roof of the bar by Darren Sinclair, but it wasn't long before Albion would score there 2nd.
Just 2 minutes later the goal came when Chris Liversedge delivered the corner in this time and it was on a plate for Darren Sinclair who got his 2nd of the game, unstoppable for Greg Collie in the Colony goal.
The next goal was important and Colony had a great chance to do that on 22 minutes when Alex Duguid's corner was punched out by Nico Berton but it came to Darren Smith but his delightful chip couldn't beat Berton in the Albion goal.
Albion were to score again though and Darren Sinclair went from scorer to provider when his left hand sided cross was met by Devin Kennedy Colbert who placed it beyond Collie in the Colony goal.
Colony pulled a goal back 5 minutes before half time to create themselves a glimmer of hope for the 2nd half when Michael Watson's through ball found Greg Wood who beat the offside trap before placing his shot into the bottom left hand corner which caught the Albion defence out.

Half Time: Albion Boys Club Under 16s 3-1 Colony Park Under 16s 
With Colony getting that goal before half time it was certainly going to be an interesting 2nd half but Albion made it 4-1 to have one hand on the cup when Ray Gordon's great ball fell into the feet of Colbert who pounced it home to score his 2nd of the game.
Colony had a really good chance to pull one back when Joe Burr's pass found Lukas Kennedy whose effort from the edge of the box was deflected out for a Colony corner by Ray Gordon.
Greg Collie then had to be called into action twice when he firstly saved at the feet of James Gibb then moved along his goalline to turn a Colbert effort away to deny the winger a hat trick.
Albion threatened once again and got the killer 5th goal to win when Jack Smith's inswinging corner was deflected into the net by the Colony defenders.
But Colony were to get another goal in the expense of a penalty after Alex Duguid was brought down by AJ Baker, after Kennedy took it and smacked the crossbar he got ordered to take it again and this time he made no mistake.
But that proved to be no change in where the cup was going and Albion were worthy winners once again but Colony can hold their heads high for a non-stop performance.
Albion co-manager John Hill revealed after the game that they will continue as Albion BC next season after there Scottish Cup sucess this season whilst captain Macaulay Rae described this season as "one of the best he's ever had", Colony Park coach Derek Wood thought Colony were better on the night but couldn't finish the chances
