Clash of the Ti­tans to see who wins the dou­ble

The Arran Banner - - Sport -

The fi­nale of the Ar­ran foot­ball sea­son will take place to­day (Satur­day) with the fi­nal of the Cop­per­wheats Knockout Cup. Ar­ran Haulage Cup cham­pi­ons Brod­ick and Ar­ran Dairies League cham­pi­ons Southend will bat­tle it out to see who will win the dou­ble this sea­son. Brod­ick edged out ri­vals Lam­lash in a close fought game on Mon­day night to book their place in the fi­nal.

Young Fin­lay Ah­erne was drafted in at the last minute to ref­eree the game and the young­ster did very well to con­trol a tricky fix­ture. Southend had an eas­ier route to the fi­nal as they dis­patched Shisk­ine com­fort­ably. Lewis Kennedy scored a hat-trick on the night but was also on the end of an aerial col­li­sion which broke his nose so he looks doubt­ful to play in the fi­nal. Ryan Arm­strong added an­other two to his collection for the sea­son and Stephen Judge also got on the score­sheet.

Euan Thomson got Shisk­ine’s only goal of the night. Ref­eree Andy Pat­ti­son was left with no op­tion to send off Iain MacDon­ald af­ter per­sis­tent abuse to­wards the ref­eree. Andy

Toby Wing­ham was back from in­jury and got on the score­sheet to take his goal tally to 22 for the sea­son, which all but en­sures him the golden boot tro­phy. Strik­ers Cameron Lo­gan and Joel Small were also on tar­get for the home side on the night.

Lam­lash goals came through Ben Tat­ters­field and Grant Adam­son.

gave man of the match to Southend mid­fielder and play­maker Donny Park.

The fi­nal will be played at 3pm to­day (Satur­day) at Or­mi­dale Park, Brod­ick. Sup­port­ers are en­cour­aged to at­tend what prom­ises to be a tight, ac­tion-packed fi­nal.
