Tynecastle and Hutchison Vale met in the final of the U14 Willie Bauld Cup on Wednesday night at Tynecastle Stadium. A large group of supporters turned out to see two of Edinburgh’s most successful youth football sides go head to head yet again. It was Hutchison Vale who came out on top after an exciting game in which the winner was never a certainty.
It was Vale who started the brighter of the two sides, creating a number of chances to score in the opening stages of the match. Declan Glass saw an effort from distance go just over the crossbar before a great run from Euan Henderson gave Grant Rose an opportunity to open the scoring. His effort went just wide however. Tynecastle’s keeper Jordan Brown did well despite the pressure from Hutchie and kept his team level with a save from a lobbed effort by Glass and a well struck volley by Jack Murray.
Vale’s persistence paid off however when a penalty was won on the twenty-five minute mark. Henderson managed to dribble his way past two players in the box before being brought down by a defender. The awarded spot-kick was calmly dispatched by Glass as he slotted the ball into the net, by the keeper’s right hand side. Hutchison Vale now had the lead and it was no more than they had deserved given that they had dominated the opening stages in terms of chances created.
Tynecastle did work the ball into the box a number of times but on the whole their possession was limited by Hutchie. Aaron Wilson did well on the left and worked his way into the box. His squared ball across the face of goal couldn’t find another Tynecastle body however.
Cameron Mills was closest to getting a touch to the ball, which would have been his first of the game after replacing Dean Galloway moments earlier.Wilson managed to create another chance for his team to score shortly after, this time laying off the ball to Lewis Gill. His shot was hit with some power but Vale’s Bryan Cairns managed to hold the ball well.
Chances towards the end of the first half were few and far between for both sides and Hutchison Vale went into the break a goal up. They had certainly created more in terms of goalscoring opportunities and will feel that they could have perhaps been more than just one goal ahead at the break.

The second half of game was a tighter affair, with Tynecastle showing a lot more promise and taking the game to Hutchie as they looked to grab an equaliser. Minutes after the restart, Wilson was unlucky not to do just that. Shifting the ball onto his left foot, he steadied himself and struck the ball towards goal. His effort rattled off of the crossbar and behind for a goal kick.
Tynecastle continued to press however and were rewarded on fifty-five minutes when Wilson headed in a corner from the left. Rising above the Hutchie defence, Wilson directed the ball towards goal and over the head of keeper Cairns who could do little to prevent the leveller for Tynie.
Buoyed by their equaliser, Tynecastle began to play at a quicker tempo and looked a much different team than that of the opening thirty-five minutes. Despite this, they were not able to build on Wilson’s goal in terms of creating more chances to score.
Hutchison Vale came close to going in front again when Gregor Lamb and Euan Henderson linked up on the edge of the box. Henderson’s cut-back across the face of the goal couldn’t find a teammate though. With just ten minutes remaining, the game looked to be heading to extra-time as both Edinburgh sides couldn’t find the breakthrough. However a great piece of skill by Glass who turned a defender on the edge of the box gave him the chance to shoot. His effort was well saved by Tynie keeper Brown but the rebound was dispatched by Dale Skinner, giving Hutchie the lead in the tie again.
Despite showing a lot more character in the second half, especially to take the lead, Tynecastle struggled to keep a hold of the ball for large parts of the game and possession swung largely in the favour of Hutchison Vale. It was Hutchie who had also looked most likely to score for the majority of the game even in the aftermath of Tynecastle pulling level. As a result, it was Vale who held on to win the tie and lift the Willie Bauld Cup in front of an impressive crowd at Tynecastle Stadium.
