Like their se­nior coun­ter­parts, the youths were hit by late call- offs from Dum­bar­ton, Ross County and Queens Park, but thanks go to Lochgilp­head Red Star for tak­ing part at short no­tice. Tour­na­ment win­ners were Hamil­ton Ac­cies, who have won the com­pe­ti­tion eight years in a row. Oban Saints fin­ished in a cred­itable sec­ond place.
