Ferry Yellows booked their place in the final of the G Kerr Cup with a convincing 5-1 victory over Coupar Angus. Cammy Hoskins had the hosts ahead midway through the first half before Ross Nicholson brought the visitors level just before the break. Second half goals from Andrew Kelly, Jay Foran, Jack Hogarth and a second Hoskins were more than enough to secure Ferry’s spot in the final.
The home side looked dangerous from the off, and would have been ahead inside the opening minutes if Rory Faulkner had kept his acrobatic effort on target. After seven minutes, Andrew Kelly met Jay Foran’s corner, but the midfielder’s header came back off the crossbar.
Foran looked to have broken the deadlock not long after, but was denied by a superb save from Andrew Richardson. The Coupar keeper pushing the Ferry man’s shot wide of the post.
Ferry were continuing to keep the pressure on Coupar and nearly went ahead on the half hour mark. Foran’s free kick was headed across the face of goal by Kelly into the path of Taylor Carroll, but the fullback saw his close-range effort was cleared off the line.
The hosts wouldn’t have to wait much longer for their goal, as Cammy Hoskins broke the deadlock four minutes later. The forward beating two Coupar defenders as he made his way to the by-line, before smashing the ball across the face of goal into the side netting.
Despite being under the cosh for most of the first half, the visitors took just four minutes to equalise. Ross Nicholson drilling a free kick from the top of the box past Elliot Smith in the Ferry goal.
The half time whistle ended a first half that had seen plenty of hard tackles and subsequent yellow cards, but somehow only two goals.
