Tynecastle Fc claimed the title of Lothian Buses Cup winners 2015 after defeating Edina Hibs CFC 4-0 in the Lothian Buses Cup Final at New Dundas Park.
Two early goals from Ivan Alapiki and a Scott Jardine penalty in the first half was added to in the second period through a Robbie Neave strike.
Tynecastle could only have dreamed of starting the game the way they did in this cup final when they found themselves two goals ahead within the first five minutes of the game.
The men in maroon opened the scoring on three minutes when Ross Watson went on a good run down the right, his ball into the box was miss-judged by Aaron Neap in the Edina goal and Ivan Alapiki was on hand from four yards out to knock the ball home.
Two minutes later and the same player was on the score sheet again when he picked the ball up in midfield and drove at the heart of the Edina defence, leaving them in his wake the big forward calmly fired the ball beyond Heap from 16 yards out to claim his and Tynie's second goal of the final
Edina's first effort of note came from a free kick on eight minutes when Daniel Duncan floated the ball into the box which was headed high into the air by Tynie's Aaron Matheson but Heap reacted quickly to come and claim the ball before Edina could capitalise.
Tynie came close to adding to their goal tally on 17 minutes when Sami Elyamaivi cut the ball back to Evan Scott in the box but his shot was taken well by Robbie Wilson in the Edina goal. A corner played in by James Scobie was cleared only as far as Scott but his shot was deflected into the path of Kameron Jackson who fired over the bar.
Midway through the first half and Edina started to make in roads into the game with a cross in from Brandon Hunter being cleared, then Liam Docherty played a lovely ball over the top but again Tynie cleared the danger.
Just when Edina seemed to be getting into the game they were dealt a body blow when they conceded a penalty on 29 minutes. Alapiki picked the ball up and drove into the box which saw Wilson come out and dive bravely at the forwards feet to smother the ball.
The referee pointed to the spot even though it looked liked the Edina keeper had a won a perfectly good challenge to win the ball. This did not concern Scott Jardine who stepped up and placed a well taken spot kick to the keepers left which gave the men from Saughton some real day light between themselves and Edina.
Tynie created a couple of good chances in the closing minutes with Scobie shooting just wide of the left hand post and into added on time, skipper Kieran Ngwenya after a good run, forced Wilson to parrie his shot wide to his right.
