Forfar Boys ran out 10-2 winners in the Diamond Jubilee Cup final against Ferry Athletic. Striker Dominik Naglik found the net four times in what was a rampant display from a Forfar side that has now completed the first part of a potential quadruple this season.

Forfar got the game off to the perfect start, opening the scoring after just two minutes. Dagan Bell’s corner kick was headed home by Kieran Kelly from close range.

Ferry were shell-shocked by the early goal, and fell further behind two minutes later. Dominik Naglik’s free kick from the left wing flew into the top corner of the Ferry goal.

A Naglik free kick brought about Forfar’s third goal of the match after just eight minutes. The striker’s effort brought a save out of Daniel Clark in the Ferry goal, but the ball fell for Ethan Murray, who volleyed the ball past the helpless keeper from close range.

Ferry’s first effort came courtesy of Harrison Taylor, who volleyed over from a corner. Despite trailing 3-0, Ferry hadn’t done much wrong and were rewarded for their efforts after 14 minutes.

Owen Boath picked out Taylor following a surging run, and his shot deflected into the path of Jay Lawson, who turned the ball home from close range.

Ferry had played their way back into the game and nearly added a second goal after 18 minutes. Boath managed to race away from the Forfar defence, but saw his effort pushed away by goalkeeper Kyle Shand. The Forfar keeper hadn’t had much to do, but this was a fine save.

There was nothing the keeper could do two minutes later, as Boath grabbed Ferry’s second goal. Lawson with the clever flick to release his strike partner, who made no mistake as he slotted the ball into the net.

Despite their slow start, Ferry were now back in the match, and just seconds after their second goal, the sixth goal of the game was scored, but it was scored by Forfar. Bell’s cross catching out the Ferry keeper Clark, as the ball flew into the net.

This was a tough one to take for Ferry, who conceded a fifth five minutes later. Naglik getting his second of the match with a low drive from the top of the box that nestled in the bottom corner of the net.

Ferry started the second half brightly, as Boath found Taylor two minutes after the restart, but he sent his effort over the crossbar.

With 40 minutes played, Forfar found the net three times in four minutes to end any chances of a Ferry comeback. Naglik completed his hat trick with a cool finish from a tight angle inside the area.

Murray then added his second of the match sixty seconds later, the midfielder firing home a loose ball inside the penalty area for Forfar’s seventh of the match.

Liam Baillie was then bundled over inside the penalty area, leaving the referee with little choice but to point to the penalty spot. Naglik stepped up and found the bottom right corner, taking his tally for the day to four.

Despite the score line, Ferry continued to try and play passing football. Boath had the chance to reduce the deficit, but he fired wide after 48 minutes.

Ferry’s day continued to get worse, as following this missed opportunity, Forfar scored again. Naglik turning provider as he cut the ball back for Jack Soutar, who found the net inside the penalty area.

Forfar weren’t done there, as they moved into double digits after 51 minutes. Jackson Ross’s cross deflected off Reece McDonald into the net. If ever a goal could represent Ferry’s day, this was it.

In the final 20 minutes, Forfar continued to press and probe but didn’t force Clark into many saves, as they ran out winners.

Once Ferry get over the disappointment of losing this match, they should remember that reaching a cup final in your first season of 11-aside football is an impressive achievement. On the day, they came up against a clinical Forfar side that probably would have hit double digits against any team, but they still played some attractive football and scored a couple of nice goals. If they can keep this group of players together, there is no reason they can’t reach more cup finals over the next couple of seasons.

As for Forfar, this is the first of four trophies on offer to them this season. They return to North End Park on May 28th to face St Andrews Colts in the Ross Ballantine Cup final, a game that if they win could confirm them as quadruple winners, something that on today’s form, looks like a real possibility.

Jay Lawson - Some excellent link up play throughout the match. Deserved to get his goal and looked like he might just pull his team back into the cup final. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be but a fine performance from the Ferry man nonetheless.
Dominik Naglik - The Forfar man was too pacey and powerful for the Ferry defenders to handle, and he had the all important end product, as he picked up four goals and a couple of assists in what was a perfect performance.

Boath's Goal - A really classy goal from Ferry. A really intelligent flick from Lawson to release Boath who showed great composure to put the ball in the net.
Naglik's First Goal - A cracking free kick that put Forfar in control of the tie.
