Glenvale avenged their Scottish Cup final defeat last year, beating Spartans at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie to lift the prestigious trophy this time round.
Spartans road to the final began with a tight victory over Spartans Colts followed by a very comfortable win against Pumpherston United. They then overcame Spartans Reds, Leith Athletic Colts and Erskine Athletic before a tough game against Airdrieonians. They faced a strong Harmony Row side in the semifinal however the Edinburgh side just managed to come out on top.
Glenvale saw off St Mirren Athletic and PFD United before putting 10 past Westdyke. They then had close games against Charlie Miller Academy, Jerviston and Tynecastle before beating Hillwood in the semi-final to book their place at Airdrie
The game started brightly with both teams trying to move the ball and it was Glenvale who had the first real opportunity, however it was comfortable in the end for Spartans’ keeper.
Shortly after, Glenvale took the lead after a wonderful ball over the top of the Spartans defence played through Fraser Lee who scored with a great finish across goal into the bottom right corner.
Glenvale’s second came just after the half-hour mark. A quick break just after a Spartans corner saw a nice lay off from the Glenvale striker straight into the path of Jack Smith who took it well and hammered it past Niall McFadden in the Spartans net to double their lead.
Only five minutes later Spartans won a penalty after a foul on Jack Crombie. Keir Russell stepped up to take the penalty however he smashed it over the bar and it remained 2-0 Glenvale.
