Bruno Davidson starred, scoring two goals and playing a pivotal role as Hutchison Vale defeated Linlithgow Rose to lift the South East region cup.

Hutchie were keen to play out from the back and in the initial stages, it seemed as if Linlithgow could cause them a few problems with their pace and power.

The chances came at both ends of the park: Kamil Spalony raced in behind the Hutchie defence to the byline but there were no takers for his ball across.

Up the other end, Davidson went close on a few occasions, mainly from distance but none too troublesome for the keeper, Matthew Wallace.

Taylor Steven had two good chances early on for Vale. The first of which was denied by a last ditch block by Callum Brown before Steven again was shut out by Wallace, who made a terrific save to keep the score level.

However the deadlock didn’t last much longer and on 14 minutes, Davidson slid Danny Chisholm in on the overlap, who in turn, squared to Sam Kilboy who fired the ball into the roof of the net from close range.

Steven went near with another long range effort and Harry McMartin had a specukative half volley caught by Ruairidh Adams before the next big chance fell. It was Lucas McGarry with the acrobatic effort but once again, Vale were denied by Wallace, who scurried across his goal to beat away.

Steven had another three or four decent chances but just agonisingly couldn’t find the net whilst Keir Brown and Aaron Waller both tried their luck but in the end with relatively tame efforts – by this point, Hutchie were firmly in the driving seat.

Vale’s control was furthered when they added their second goal on the stroke of half time. Jake Houton managed to get to the byline on the right and his pull-back evaded the goalkeeper, leaving Davidson an empty net to sweep into and double Hutchie’s lead going into the break.

The second half opened much like the first ended – with Hutchison Vale very much on top. They were keen to add to their two goal cushion and were close to doing so on a few occasions.

Taylor Steven and Jacob Comerford both had distance strikes saved before Davidson weaved his way into a scoring position, but couldn’t quite stab the ball past Wallace.

The third came on 48 minutes when Davidson won the ball back high up the park and slid in Steven, who saw his effort blocked well by Brown but the ball would fall back to Davidson who wasn’t going to miss from eight or nine yards out.

Chisholm found Davidson, who again managed to glide through the Linlithgow defence, who were camped back and struggling to get out by this point, but hi sclose reang effort was turned behind.

Just after the resulting corner, a cross came in from the left wing and unfortuantely came of a Linlithgow head last, and in an attempt to clear – the ball crahsed in off the crossbar to make it four.

McMartin fancied his chances with a long free kick for Rose but it was comfortable in the end for the keeper. Spalony had one final go as he attempted to wriggle through the Hutchie defence but the attacker just couldn't get his shot away.

The final nail was put in the coffin two minutes from time as the ball was worked across to Houton who dispatched the ball into the bottom corner from inside the area to cap off a glorious win for Hutchison Vale and ensure they lift the trophy without conceding a single goal.

Star Player
Hutchison Vale
Linlithgow Rose
Bruno Davidson was the star man for Hutchison Vale. Throughout the game he drifted into all kinds of areas making him extremely difficult to pick up – and once he got the ball; it was very difficult to get it off of him - and two goals to show for it.
Kamil Spalony was impressed for Linlithgow Rose. The striker was extremly quick in closing the Vale backline down and always offered a threat in behind for his side due to his speed and good technical ability.
