If Colony Locos coaches Derek Wood & Alan Calder were looking for a brillant performance to see out there coaching careers with the club in style then they definitely seen it at Spain Park, controlled play for the majority of the game and on their day they could have scored more.
Don't underestimate Formartine though, this was their biggest game of the season and they put up a fantastic fight, they have exceeded all expectations for this season and they deserve a lot of credit for finishing 4th in a really competitive league.
Locos were quick to get into their stride and had a lot of good attacking opportunities in the opening period of the game which in the end came to no avail, the Formartine defence and goalie Ryan Thomson must deserve praise for a brave display.
Colony took the lead in the 14th minute, a great ball in by Dean Henderson found Dan Crisp whose effort was enough to squeeze under the United defence and in, this was only going to give Alan Calder's side the impetus to go on and make sure their name was on the trophy.
The Inverurie side then doubled their advantage in the 32nd minute, another great ball came in which Formartine couldn't defend and it landed into the pathway of Grant Dawson (who scored a brace last weekend in the Scottish Cup final) who nodded home.
