Black Abbot 4, Fettercairn 0

THE FINAL of the Charlie Wallace Cup was played at Links Park last Friday, when both teams felt they had a realistic chance of winning.

Fettercairn started the final on top and went close after five minutes when the ball was played down the left and swung over to be headed just wide by the striker.

On 15 minutes they again went close when Hay shot just over the bar.

Yet again the village side went close when Dunbar raced from his goal to clear the danger.

Abbot were happy to contain Fettercairn until in the 35th minute a fine passing move down the right allowed Robb to cross for Chris FYVIE to slip the ball home to give Abbot the lead.

On their next foray up front Fettercairn hit the bar, then Dunbar held a cross under the bar while pressurised by the Fettercairn striker.

Half-time: Black Abbot 1, Fettercairn 0.

Abbot started the half strongly and within five minutes FYVIE doubled the lead when he crashed home from close range.

The game continued from end-to-end with Fettercairn having their fair share of chances.

With a quarter of an hour to go another good move saw Ross and Fyvie exchange a couple of passes before Ross released SELLAR, who calmly ran through to slip the ball past the ‘keeper to put the Abbot safe at 3-0.

Five minutes from the end a goalmouth scramble sent the ball to the feet of Fyvie. He sent it goalward but it was heavily deflected by a Fettercairn defender to deny another hat-trick for the league’s most prolific scorer.

However the ball ended up in the net to complete the scoring.

The final result somewhat flattered the Abbot, much to the disappointment of the large support from Fettercairn.
