In the second youth cup final to be played at Pittodrie this season, Culter ran out 3-1 winners over Glentanar with Stuart Charleton, and an Aiden Combe brace getting the goals for Culter with Lewis Stephen netting a consolation for Glentanar.
It was an excellent match with an abundance of chances and the first one fell to Glentanar in the 4th minute. Craig Simpson played a good diagonal ball down to Elliott McDonald who then tried to chip David Dey in the Culter goal however it went narrowly over.
Declan Milne then tried a chip of his own for Culter after racing clear of the Glentanar defence. He just had Callum Ritchie to beat however Paul Orr raced back in time to clear the ball off the line.
Ritchie had an excellent game for Glentanar and was called into action again soon after when Callum Buchan played in Declan Milne. The Culter player aimed for the bottom left hand corner however Ritchie produced a full stretch save to deny the former Glentanar forward.
Culter took the lead in the 18th minute after Declan Milne's corner was met by Stuart Charleton, who guided his header and placed it into the roof of the net, past Ritchie in the Glentanar goal.
The league runners up kept dominating Glentanar and had another chance just three minutes later after Stuart Mcnicholas passed into Callum Buchan. Buchan in turn hit a first time shot from 25 yards which went over, he perhaps could have taken another touch.
Glentanar equalised just a minute before half time. Elliott McDonald played a good ball down the left flank which was met by Lewis Stephen. Stephen then he did the rest by calmly slotting the ball into the bottom right hand corner, which gave David Dey no chance.
Half Time: Culter Boys 1-1 Glentanar BC
Culter were to re-take the lead just eight minutes into the second half. Callum Buchan played in Aiden Combe who then slotted the ball low and hard past Callum Ritchie in the Glentanar goal, to give him no chance of stopping it.
Ten minutes later it was 3-1. Callum Buchan passed the ball into Aiden Combe, who then dribbled past two Glentanar defenders before producing a cool finish to beat Ritchie. It looked like, by that point, Culter would take home the trophy. Glentanar had it all to do.
Declan Milne played well and he was unfortunate not to have a goal to his name and could have got himself a goal. He met a good ball from substiute Declan McGunnigle however his effort flew over the bar.
Milne continued to probe and raced clean through of the Glentanar defence, with Aiden Combe for company. Milne crashed his effort wide, when perhaps the better option may have been to square the ball.
Overall it was a good cup final, and advert for the Aberdeen & District Juvenile FA. Culter deserved their victory but Glentanar more than played their part in a good spectacle, and based on their progress this season, will be sure to bounce back.
Full Time: Culter Boys 3-1 Glentanar BC
Terry Charleton, Culter Coach, said "I'm absoloutely ecstatic, I thought we deserved the win overall, we had some many chances in the first half to put the game to bed and their goalie had some tremendous saves."
John Milne, Glentanar coach, said "I thought the lads played really well however I thought the lads lost their way when we lost the goals, Culter were the more clinical in front of goal."
