In the middle of March hundreds of teams were harbouring dreams of lifting the coveted SWF Scottish Cup Trophy in November. This weekend we will see the final four compete for that special place at Oriam for the Scottish Cup Final.
 
In all age groups, the talent and effort on show has been tremendous and everyone competing in Glasgow on Saturday has well and truly earned their place in this stage of the competition.
 
YFS is happy to be able to provide coverage for what is sure to be an unforgettable day of football. Let’s take a look now at the matches on show this weekend.
 
Central Girls Legends vs Hamilton Academical U13
In their respective regions, both of these teams have been unstoppable. Central Girls Legends contested the Central League Cup Final against their sister team Central Girls Jaguars, and secured a big win, whilst Hamilton lifted the South West trophy with their triumph over FC Kilmarnock Blues.
 
These two have proven themselves to be terrific teams and picking between the two is an unenviable task. There is however one thing, if previous semi-finals of the U13s age group are to go by, that these two should be able to deliver. Goals.
 
The previous match between these two in the Kim Little League saw Accies run out narrow 2-1 winners. Expect another close game at Lesser Hampden.

Quarter Final – Raith Rovers (A) – 2-7
 
 
Donside Girls vs Celtic FC U13
Last season Donside Girls U13’s beat a strong Musselburgh Windsor side in last year’s final to capture glory and will be looking to repeat their exploits this time around.
 
The Aberdeenshire side will also be looking to put their defeat in the final of the North Region Cup last month behind them and give themselves another shot at silverware.
 
They face a Celtic side riding high after their convincing West Region Cup final victory over St Mirren. A Scottish Cup win would be the icing on the cake in an already successful season for the Hoops, but they will need to be at their best to defeat the reigning champions.

Quarter Final – Celtic 12’s (A) – 4-1
 
 
Hearts FC vs Rangers U15
Hearts go into this game knowing that they will have to beat last season’s U15 champions in order to book their place at Oriam. The Jambos were beaten semi-finalists in the U15’s Performance League Cup semi-final and will be hoping to go one better as they aim for the crown of Scottish Champions.
 
Rangers were impressive in last season’s final against Hibernian and will be looking for an equally professional performance this Saturday. They’ve shown good form in this competition so far, having secured their semi-final place with an impressive win over Performance League Cup winners Boroughmuir Thistle.
 
Hearts FC

2nd Round – Banchory United (Withdrawn)

2nd Round – Aberdeen FCL Reds (A) – 4-1
3rd Round – FC Kilmarnock Performance (H) 5-4
Quarter Finals – Boroughmuir Thistle (H) 2-0
 
 
Lanarkshire Hibs vs Celtic U15
Lanarkshire Hibs will go into this game knowing that it can go either way and that only their best will be enough to book their place in this years’ final. They and Celtic both share a win over each other in this year’s Performance League, but will be confident of their capabilities going into this important game at Toryglen.
 
Celtic fell out of the competition at this stage to bitter rivals Rangers and know that winning this weekend could potentially set up an Old Firm final. The Hoops lost their last encounter with Hibs, but will be confident of advancing to Oriam.

Aberdeen FCL vs Rangers FC U17
Aberdeen have had an excellent season so far and a Scottish Cup trophy would be the perfect way to round off the season. The Dons are the Performance League Cup champions and currently sit atop the Performance League table.
 
Rangers have yet to pick up a win over Aberdeen this season and the matches between the two have been extremely close. Anyone watching on Saturday can expect an close encounter and a really good game.
 
Aberdeen FCL
 
1st Round – BYE
2nd Round – Broxburn Athletic (H) – 7-1

2nd Round – Hamilton Academical (H) – 4-0
Quarter Finals – Murieston United (H) – 11-2
 
 
Celtic FC vs Dryburgh Athletic U17
 
Celtic go into this match on fine form. They have only lost one game in the Performance League so far this season and will certainly fancy their chances on Saturday. However they will have to be at their very best if they hope to beat their opponents this weekend.
 
Dryburgh Athletic were well beaten in the final of this competition last year by Glasgow City, but gained a measure of revenge by beating City in the third round of this competition. Having already clinched the SWF South East title, they’ll be keen to book another trip to Oriam this year.

Airdrie: Rhys Park
 
Airdrieonians were extremely depleted heading into the game with only 12 to select from with a player unavailable, alongside two players who were cup tied. Rhys however was a positive for Airdrieonians Real, showing some good touches alongside linking up with other players during the game.

Rhys also got forward whenever he could and had one of very limited opportunities for Airdrie. Rhys also tried to defend and put in a lot of effort against a pacy and very forward thinking Dyce BC Blues Under 13s outfit.
 
Rhys will be disappointed with the outcome however he should look at a strong performance from his perspective and turn a disappointment into a positive going forward. It will be a tough defeat to take however if his attitude and application remains to a high standard then he will move on and become a stronger player in the future.

 
Dyce: Matt McFarlane

After an unsettled first period, Matt showed why he is a fantastic striker and a great finisher with a good eye for goal, the Dyce management team decided to place Matt in midfield for the first half however a tactical change at half time saw Matt move to striker which is his normal position and the big decision reaped it's rewards.
 
Matt gave the Airdrie defence something different to worry about in the second period and scored a fantastic first goal from a tight angle giving David Milligan no chance. The fact that McFarlane placed the ball into the bottom right hand corner from that tight angle speaks volumes about the type of finish it was.

McFarlane also scored a good second goal towards the business end of the game after getting into a great position before tucking the ball home. McFarlane helped his team mates throughout the duration of the game with a lack of quality pass the only difference between Dyce not being more of a threat in the first half.
 
In the second half, McFarlane showed why he is a quality player and he certainly helped the team with a deserved Scottish Cup success, only the second time at Under 13s level that an ADJFA side has won the Scottish Cup. This is a special Dyce team and Matt certainly ticks all the boxes to help make this team special.
 


 

Tynecastle against Musselburgh was a fine example of contrasting styles, and the tightness of the game showed both teams knew their strengths. While back fours were a common bond, their attacking formations were starkly contrasting. Tynecastle’s 4-4-1-1 was designed to maintain a solid midfield foundation, with balls then pushed wide to encourage crosses. Windsor, conversely, lined up with a forward triumvirate - one central, two wide - with a supporting and flexible midfield three behind.

That Tynecastle took the lead from a cross, parried kindly into midfielder Callum Todd’s path, was not surprising. However Musselburgh were soon launching their own weapons. Josh Murray was the central prong, while Daniel Combe had moments of great success on the left.

Yet the real damage came on the right where Robert Hunter was allowed to roam in from his wing, with tireless midfielder Tyler Pryde filling in the vacated space. Both players were to have superb games, and indeed combined for their side’s second goal.

Substitutes to begin the second half did shift the tactics somewhat, as Tynecastle moved Corin Brown from the right wing to centre forward, put new man Sam Kilboy out wide, and withdrew Elijah Anukum. Musselburgh, meanwhile, made more dramatic switches as Hunter came off for a break, Murray went deep, Finn Thomson became the striker, and Pryde pushed further forward.

Continuity paid dividends as Tynecastle became the better team, rustling up chance after chance. And then falling behind. Pryde’s running got him up the wing and Hunter, back on and up front, took the chance.

It cannot be said that Tynecastle got their tactics wrong; it was occasionally hard to fathom how they were not two goals ahead rather than one behind. But in tightly contested games cold brutal finishing can be the difference. A remedy appeared to arrive just in time as Koren Brown’s free kick in the final minute equalised, making it probably the most clutch swing of a boot in the entire game.

However this only forced extra time, where Musselburgh’s decisive quality - righteous passion - became the deciding factor. Liam Henderson and Pryde charged around the pitch as if their flesh were on fire, offering performances to match Windsor’s vociferous support in the stands. Windsor were not individuals, or even a team, but a community, and Henderson’s winner proved how strong that can be.

 
Back in September 2018 hundreds of teams from across the country began their Scottish Cup journeys and now, for each age group, we finally have our finalists.
 
The road to May's showpiece event in Airdrie has been a long and challenging one for all teams involved and YFS has been privilaged to be along for the journey. Congratulations to this year's inspiresport Scottish Youth FA Cup finalists and good luck in May!
 
U13
 
Airdrieonians Real BC vs Dyce BC
Sunday 19th May, 2:00pm
 
 
Airdrieonians Real BC
 
Real will have home advantage for the final this year, so to speak, and have been extremely impressive on their run this season. Their semi-final victory against Blantyre SA will surely be a highlight for the youngsters, booking their place at the home of Hamilton Accies.
 
1st Round: BYE
2nd Round: East End Thistle - 1-0 (A)
3rd Round: Bonnyrigg Rose Reds - 4-0 (H)

Quarter-Finals: St Patricks Sports Academy - 3-1 (A)
Semi-Finals: Blantyre SA - 3-1 (A)
 
 
Dyce BC
 
Dyce's appearance at the finals will be the only appearance from an Aberdeenshire side across all age groups this year. Cove Youth were the regions sole representatives last year, as they came up short against Hutchison Vale. Dyce will be hoping to better that outcome.
 
 
1st Round: BYE
2nd Round: CBC Hilton - 5-0 (A)
3rd Round: East End Boys Athletic - 9-1 (A)
4th Round: Spartans FC Youth - 3-2 (H)

U14s
 
Kerse United vs Knightswood FC
Saturday 18th May, 2:00pm
 
 
Kerse United
 
The Grangemouth-based side had to wait a little longer than usual to book their place in the final, but did so in fine fashion, securing a 5-3 victory over Glenbrae Colts to reach the final. This is a side with plenty of goals in them, which should make the U14s final very entertaining.
 
 
1st Round: BYE
2nd Round: Gartcairn FA - 1-0 (H)
3rd Round: Spartans FC Youth - 5-0 (H)
4th Round: Glenburn MW - 4-2 (H)

6th Round: Riverside CSC - 3-2 (H)
Quarter-Final: Braehead FC - 4-2 AET (H)
Semi-Final: Glenbrae Colts - 5-3 (H)
 
 
Knightswood FC
 
Knightswood were the last team to book their place in the final, after having their semi-final match postponed twice. It would be worth the wait though, as they overcame 2006 age group champions Hutchison Vale at Oriam to seal their spot in Airdrie.
 
 
1st Round: BYE
2nd Round: St Andrews BC - 6-0 (H)
3rd Round: Thorn Athletic - 8-0 (H)

U15
 
Tynecastle FC vs Musselburgh Windsor
Sunday 19th May, 5:00pm
 
 
Tynecastle FC
 
It's been a long journey to the final for Tynecastle FC. They've come through some very hard games on their way, including a narrow victory over last years 2004 age group champions Spartans. They will be looking to avenge their loss to Musselburgh in the SERYFA Division 1 League Cup when the two clash in Airdrie.
 
 
First Round: Broxburn Athletic Colts - 9-1 (H)
Second Round: Spartans FC Youth - 2-1 (A)
Third Round: Aston Villa BC - 3-0 (H)
Fourth Round: Giffnock North BC United - 4-2 (A)
Fifth Round: Burntisland Shipyard - 2-1 (H)
Quarter-Final: Glenvale AFC - 4-1 (A)
Semi-Final: AFC Glasgow - 4-1 (H)
 
 
Musselburgh Windsor
 
Windsor go into the cup final with a win over Tynecastle already this season, and will certainly know what to expect from their opponents in the final. They have only conceded five goals in the tournament, something that will give the SERYFA side confidence.
 
 
First Round: Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts - 3-1 (H)
Second Round: Hutchison Vale Colts - 2-0 (H)
Third Round: Caledonian YFC - 2-1 AET (A)

U16s
 
Giffnock SC vs Longniddry Villa
Saturday 18th May, 10:30am
 
 
Giffnock SC
