Westdyke CC won the Belmont Trophy with a fantastic footballing performance, overcoming an enthusiastic Lewis United Youth side 7-3. Disappointment from the Dyce defeat recently in the Stonehaven Youth Trophy final was quickly vanished with some good individual outings alongside a fantastic team performance.

Lewis United started the game well and came quickly out of the traps, with the game just a minute old. The first chance appeared for the green and white hoops with Brunon Paszkiewicz having a good opportunity denied by Daniel Neish in the Westdyke goal. A good team move at the other end of the park almost led to the opening goal on five minutes. Matthew Petermann found Jamie Maclellan however his effort by the midfielder went wide following a good team move.

Ken McKenzie was playing his last game for Lewis United and he couldn't have dreamed for a better start than taking the lead on 10 minutes. A good shot was blocked before Olek Dlugosz kept his cool to dispatch the opener past Neish who made some good saves irrespective of letting in three goals.

Westdyke were always going to respond and they equalised on 22 minutes. Jamie Maclellan once again pulled the strings in the heart of the midfield and then had the accuracy to follow up with it afterwards by taking the ball on the edge of the box before curling a fantastic effort into the back of the net off the post. The game was evenly poised at that point with Jack Youngson having a free kick for Lewis go wide shortly afterwards.

Stewart Simpson has turned out to be a good signing for Westdyke and made his mark on the cup final by giving Westdyke the lead for the first time during the match on 34 minutes. Scott Coull broke his way into the box and had an effort parried by the Lewis goalkeeper before Simpson struck the ball into the net from an acute angle.

The second half was a case of twists and turns, Westdyke repeated their good football of the first period in the second and doubled their advantage just four minutes after the restart. Danny Belford has been a great signing from Newtonhill 2003s and played a good ball into the talented Matthew Pettermann who showed similar patterns of Maclellan's goal by cutting inside before lashing home a nice curled drive into the net to make it 3-1 Westdyke.

Callum Nicol has enjoyed a great year with Westdyke and has came on leaps and bounds a player and person. He made it 4-1 on 52 minutes after going on a good run before his effort crashed off the post and into the net.

Those two quick fire goals from Westdyke helped galvanise Lewis United in a way to make sure it wasn't all one sided and Lewis managed to retrieve some goals and pride themselves. United reduced the leeway on 54 minutes when a fantastic ball was swung in to Ross Allan who guided the ball into the net beyond Neish.

Brunon Paszkiewicz had a fantastic game for Lewis United and certainly didn't deserve to be on the losing team. On 67 minutes, from a wide area he made sure there was only one goal apart in the game remaining by shooting home a good strike from a wide position, full credit to the talented attacker for doing that and showing that extra bit of ambition for his team.

Westdyke came back though and scored some late goals to make the scoreline a little bit harsh on Lewis United. Scott Coull found Petermann whose close range shot slid past the Lewis goalkeeper and into the net to restore their two goal cushion.

Coull, who performed like a captain and leader got himself onto the scoresheet just a couple of minutes later after a tremendous run into the box. His shot cannoned off the left hand post and in to make it 6-3 Westdyke.

Coull then got into the box again for the final goal of the match and struck home a nice finish past the Lewis backline to complete a good day at the office and a good end to the campaign. Full credit to Lewis for giving Westdyke a really good game of football however Westdykes talent, ability, desire and quality showed on the day.

Congratulations to Westdyke CC and commiserations to Lewis United Rangers.
