Syngenta Juveniles claimed their fourth trophy of the season with a 4-1 victory over Clyde in the FVFDA League Cup final.
The Dyes were the dominant side throughout and in the early stages Robbie McCafferty’s live wire tendencies were causing all sorts of problems.
Within a minute of kick-off, the winger broke down the right and cut a deflected ball across goal, which evaded his teammates by a matter of inches.
McCafferty then combined with Flynn Gray and delivered a teasing ball into the box but again there was no connection.
In the 8th minute, the wide player’s pace created the space to hang a cross to the back post, which was volleyed just over by Grant Forrester.
The early pressure paid off with 26 minutes on the clock and Syngenta fans were not to be surprised by the culprit. Roman Blazejewski’s clever flick-on was anticipated by none other than Gray, who slotted home the opener and continued his fine season.
In the final five minutes of the first half, there was a flurry of chances. Blazejewski showed the presences of mind to control the ball in the penalty area and lift the ball over a defender’s head to Gray who exchanged with McCafferty before blasting over.
On the half, a defensive slip presented Clyde with a glorious opportunity to level with Iain Laver free at the back post. However, much to the relief of Syngenta, Allan Dickson was alert to produce a strong two-handed stop and ensure it was 1-0 at the break.
