Aberdeen Grammar are in two cup finals and this was their first chance to try and get some silverware. They were up against a Harlaw outfit who have players playing at SFL clubs and Chris Liversedge an ex Scottish Cup winner with Albion.

After a quiet start to the final the game sprung to life in the second half and Harlaw had to battle back from a goal down to win 5-1 including a hat-trick from Scott Adams.

The start to the game proved to be very quiet and a match, which contained very few chances in the opening 20 minutes, and it proved to be mostly a midfield tussle.

Grammar were to have the first clear cut chance of the game after Scott Davie tried his luck from the edge of the box. He tried a low drive but a good save from the Harlaw keeper denied the forward.

Harlaw registered a chance of their own after a great ball was sent in by the Harlaw left back which was met by ex Aberdeen forward Scott Adams. However, it just sailed over the bar.

Davie was Grammar's key player throughout the game and it was his delightful ball which created the opening goal in this final. The Aberdeen schools select player sent it from the right hand flank which was put in by a Harlaw defender.

It wasn't long before Harlaw hit back. A delightfully chipped ball found Abroath striker Scott Adams, who latched onto it and chipped over the advancing keeper.

Harlaw took the lead a short time later after Chris Liversedge threatened the Grammar defence and then bent the ball superbly into the far left hand corner.

Scott Adams was to get another two goals to complete a hat-trick with two great strikes which gave the keeper no chance, leaving the Grammar defence exposed on both occasions.

Daniel Inglis then rounded off the scoring after there was a strammash in the box and Inglis' deflected effort found it's way into the bottom right hand corner.

It was a fine display by Harlaw Academy, who lifted the cup to the joy of the players and spectators.
