Fresh from Albion claiming the Batt Cables trophy after a 4-0 win over Lewis United, it was now Dyce and Westdyke's turn to clash off, a close game was expected from the spectators and the outcome was probably just right.
It was a deserved win by Dyce however Westdyke couldn't have asked for any more and that was pointed out when the players spoke to the coaches to analyze the game, a bright future lies ahead for ADJFA football at this age group and despite Albion romping to the league, it should be a competitive league next season.
Westdyke had the 1st opportunity of the game, a ball by Phillip Wallace found it's way into Nathan Rankine however a good save from Ross Mowatt in the Dyce goal denied the Westhillers an early breakthrough.
Dyce then had a chance at the other end in the 9th minute, a through ball from Rory Brown found it's way into Daryl Robertson whose effort just went inches wide of the right hand post.
The Aberdeen based side got the breakthrough after just 17 minutes, a long kick from Mowatt found it's way beyond the Westdyke defence into the feet of Robertson who then sent in a lovely ball from the right hand channel which found wasn't dealt with properly and Matthew Tough was on hand to clear up the mess and put Dyce in front.

Westdyke had a chance to get an equaliser early in the second half, a great ball in from the left hand flank from Reece Taylor found it's way into Euan Walker whose header just flashed wide.
Dyce made Westdyke pay and got a crucial second goal with the period only 7 minutes old, a wonderful ball came in from the left hand side which was met by Matthew Tough who guided the ball home with a half volley, a wonderful strike which gave the goalkeeper no chance.
Any Dons fans who are associated with Dyce didn't need to go to Pittodrie to see entertainment, Dyce had attracted the fans once again just a short time later.  Nathan Stewart went on a brilliant mazy run before his shot found the roof of the net giving Dyce some breathing space.
Westdyke's determination can't be disregarded and had a chance to pull one back through Rankine however another good save from Mowatt denied the forward once more.
The Westhillers did get a goal which they deserved, a great ball came into the penalty box which Euan Walker got on the end of and perfectly guided it home to give his side some credit from the game.
