Banks O'Dee Albion entered the final of the Mark McEwan Regional Trophy with a 3-0 win at Colony Park with the hosts deserving credit for pushing their opponents to the edge although Albions quality told in the end. The treble is still on the cards for the visitors whilst Colony Park showed what they can achieve with a big of togetherness.

Albion started the game on the front foot, a good ball on four minutes by Finlay Ness was met by Harry Ingram however a good effort by the tall midfielder went wide, Ingram was a constant figure at the beginning of the game for Albion and a good long range effort was denied by Grant Middleton.

Colony battled into the game as the contest progressed, a good effort from Fraser Davidson 30 yards on goal required Lucas Muller to come into action and the goalkeeper made a decent stop. A Muller kick out found Caie McDonald who did well at left back, McDonald found Ingram however a good effort was blocked.

The visitors took the lead on 39 minutes, a good ball across goal by Reece McKerron was  met by Michael Mitchell who didn't catch the shot at goal right however still had enough of a connection to force the ball going over the goal line past Middleton.

  • 0-1
  • Banks O'Dee Albion

Albion understandably had most of the chances in the first half however Colony had opportunities themselves and battled well and showed a fantastic togetherness about them.

Adam Harper tried to force an equaliser for Colony however a good save from Muller denied the striker, Mullers saves were rewarded with a 2nd goal on 62 minutes, Reece McKerron once again doing some good work before playing in Harry Ingram who kept his composure to slot the ball into the net.

Colony continued to have chances despite Albion leading, a good long range effort from Sam McAlley went wide, both sides played good football in front of a healthy looking crowd.

Ness completed the scoring in the dying stages of the game after a lovely ball from Jack Lappin found Ness who had time to get into the box before smashing the ball into the net beyond Middleton. A good victory for Banks O'Dee Albion over a positive Colony Park, both sides have been fantastic to watch the last 4/5 years and have high hopes for their development into adult football.

Grant Middleton - Colony played well however Grant kept the scoreline down with some good saves.
Harry Ingram - Harry should have scored more however the fact he is getting into dangerous positions is a positive, also scored.
