Lewis United beat Deveronvale 5-1 in the final of the Noskab Trophy to complete a clean sweep of trophies this season.

It means the United trophy cabinet will be kept company by the 17s SoccerWorld League A, the Trans World Soccer Scottish Youth FA Cup, the Raymond Kelly Association Trophy, and now the Noskab Trophy.

A hat-trick from midfielder Marc Lawrence and a goal a piece by Dylan Leslie and Drew Canale secured victory for Lewis United. Deveronvale striker Michael Ironside’s late reply was only a consolation.

Deveronvale would have entered the game with a small degree of confidence that they could end Lewis United's run. They took the Scottish Cup champions to extra time in the third round of the Raymond Kelly Association Trophy, before eventually losing 6-3.

And they had the first opportunity of the game. Ironside’s powerful run took him all the way into the Lewis penalty area but his side-foot finish went narrowly wide of goal.

From that moment on Lewis United never looked like losing this final. Callum Youngson and Leslie both had a goal disallowed for offside within the first 10 minutes.

Both wingers in their 4-3-3, Youngson and Leslie, were getting chalk on their boots and were a constant out ball for Lewis.

And it was third time lucky for Lewis as they eventually took the lead after 14 minutes. Lewis Masson’s delicate pass through found Lawrence who blasted past goalkeeper Dylan Gray from eight yards.

Lewis striker Craig Mackie then broke the offside trap but he was brilliantly denied by Gray who made himself as big as possible.

But Lewis did double their lead in the 38th minute. A great turn and pass by Youngson found Mackie whose cross was steered home by Leslie.

Deveronvale needed the first goal of the second half to turn the match into a contest. But Lewis all-but won the game after making it 3-0 10 minutes after the interval when Lawrence’s half-volley from 25 yards found the net.

Six minutes later central midfielder Lawrence completed his hat-trick with a stooping header at the near post.

Ironside again threatened for Deveronvale but his shot from the left side of the penalty area was palmed away by goalkeeper Reece Duncan.

But minutes later Ironside did finally beat Duncan from just inside the 18-yard box to make it 4-1.

Lewis were not done themselves though and they made it five in the 90th minute. Masson’s glanced header was saved by Gray but Canale converted the rebound from six yards.

Star Player
Lewis United Youth
Marc Lawrence - Scored a hat-trick from midfield in his last game for the side, including a great header and a fantastic long-range half-volley. Lawrence will now sign for Scottish League One side Peterhead.
Michael Ironside - His direct running and pace was the biggest threat to Lewis United's goal. He deserved his goal and never stopped trying.
Magic Moment
Lewis United Youth
Lawrence’s half-volley from 25 yards effectively finished the game as a contest, and was easy on the eye!
Ironside’s goal was well deserved, both individually and collectively.
