Pitfour secured the Dundee West Anniversary Cup with a 3-0 win over Ferry Athletic. A second half brace from Andrew Allan and a late strike from Alistar Alcorn secured the first of a potential four trophies available to Pitfour this season.
Both sides started cautiously, with every player on the park trying to get a touch of the ball in the opening exchanges. Pitfour’s first effort came courtesy of Ben Clos, but the midfielder’s effort from distance was off target. Ferry’s Kai Meldrum shot wide not long after.
The Ferry captain did well to keep the score level after nine minutes. Goalkeeper Aaron Caird misjudged a cross, but Meldrum managed to hook the ball off the line, sparing the keepers blushes in the process.
Ferry created the best chance of the match after 18 minutes. Meldrum’s pass somehow found its way through to Rory Smith, and the winger blasted the ball against the crossbar from seven yards out. This was a golden opportunity for Ferry, an opportunity that clearly took Smith by surprise as it fell to him.
As half time approached, Pitfour began to increase the pressure on the Ferry goal. Alistar Alcorn with a jinking run from deep, but he didn’t trouble Caird as he sent his effort wide. Jordan Turnbull was the next Pitfour player to have a go, but his effort ended up in the side netting.
