Four goals from Jamie Bruce helped Maryfield United end their decade long wait for a trophy as they toppled Mearns in the final of the Mac Brown Cup.
A hat trick from Kyle Johnston and strikes from Arran Duncan and Ewan Patterson ensured it was an Easter Sunday to be remembered for Maryfield.
Maryfield came into the game as firm favourites thanks to a 100% record in the Watson McInally League and they saw both Dillon Gurung and Sol Campbell denied by Ian Strachan in the Mearns goal.
The early stages were played predominantly in the Mearns half as Maryfield searched for the opener, which came after 11 minutes when Jamie Bruce headed home Arran Duncan’s corner at the near post.
Bruce wasted no time doubling Maryfield’s advantage as he latched onto a through ball and slotted a shot past Strachan.
Duncan, who provided the opener, went close to adding a third for Maryfield when he cracked a shot off the base of the post before being denied one-on-one by Strachan.
It would be third time lucky for Duncan, who eventually got the better of the impressive Strachan after 25 minutes with a cool chipped finish to put Maryfield three to the good.
Kyle Johnston grabbed Maryfield’s fourth shortly before the break as he fired the ball over Strachan.
Mearns’s best chance of the first half came in injury time as Kyle Reid cross fell to Matthew Brown in the box, but the midfielder lashed the ball over the bar from close range.
