Currie Star 
Dalkeith CYP
Under 13's Division 2
Saughton Park
First played second in what would turn out to be the game that would decide who would be crowned 2nd Division Champions. Dalkeith CYP knew that a draw would be enough with Currie Star needing a win. This was the fourth meeting of the two teams in a month with Dalkeith winning the previous league meeting and Currie just edging both the cup games.

Right from the start Dalkeith were up for it and they settled the better with the 3G surface being perfect for them to get the ball down and pass the ball, it wasn’t long before the first goal flew into the net following some fantastic interplay by Owen Winnik, Matthew Scotland and Lewis Latimer who finished the move perfectly with a goal. Dalkeith where dominating the midfield with Callum Beilski in the middle, Latimer on the left and Scotland on the right setting up chance after chance for the Dalkeith front two of Winnik and Jay Murray. Following more good play from midfield it wasn’t long before Winnik made it 2-0. Dalkeith’s passing and movement was breathtaking at times and with the amount of pressure they had it was only a matter of time before another goal went in and it was Winnik who popped up again to grab his second. At 3-0, Currie looked dejected, knowing that the game was beyond them and it wasn’t long before substitute Keiran Jack and Latimer with his 2nd of the game made it 5-0.

Currie Star have had a great season, winning two of the 2nd Division cups and they have some of the best individual players across this age group. Russell Cairns is a real gem, and if coach Dean Montgomery can keep his team together they should do well next season should they decide to go into the 1st Division.

Dalkeith CYP were extremely unlucky to lose their cup final against Currie Star, and they were very impressive again against Leith Athletic. They have some truly great young footballers such as Buchanan, Beilski, Scotland, Winnik, Cole, Beveridge, Latimer who were all outstanding that day.

Full Time: Currie Star 0-5 Dalkeith CYP
