Johnshaven Athletic 6

Grammar FPs 1

Johnshaven booked their place in the final of the Edmund Trophy after an empathic win in the semi-final.

A good run from Roger down the right found Gibbon but his shot went wide.

A couple minute later, a free kick played in by J. Dalgarno looked to be heading to the head of MacLaren but the keeper came out to get a vital touch to the ball and away from danger.

In the 12th minute S. Blease found himself in on goal but his shot came back off the post.

A corner from Rodger was played deep into the back post where Lee PATON was able to control and thump the ball into the roof of the net.

On the half hour mark Beedie crossed to Gibbon and the striker cleverly dummied it to Jack RODGER whose ferocious shot gave the keeper no chance.

Gibbon was fouled in the box. Regular penalty kick taker Ross BLEASE stepped up and made no mistake.

Half Time: Johnshaven Athletic 3 v Grammar FPs 0..

At the half time break Bruce replaced MacLaren and not long into the half towns replaced Rodger.

Jharone GIBBON put the home team 4-0 up after an hour after a good pass from S. Blease.

After 70 minutes S. Blease was again provider when he squared to Jharone GIBBON to finish superbly. In the 72nd minute Dundas and T. Dalgarno replaced Paton and Slavin.
