Written by 

Fixture: Linlithgow Rose Maroon v Armadale Falcons (Under 14s)
Competition: Jason Wardrope Cup - Final
Venue: Prestonfield Park, Linlithgow
Date: 08/05/16
This season West Lothian AYFC has decided to take the cup finals around the grounds of West Lothian and following visits to West Calder United and Blackburn United, the final stop off of the long weekend was Linlithgow Rose's Prestonfield Park. The sun was shining and both sides relished the opportunity to play on an excellent surface.
A hard fought game between two evenly matched sides, although always played in great spirit.
A 28th minute penalty settled the final. After great link up play, Rose's Jack Muldoon was felled in the box, and the resultant penalty was despatched by Arran Staines.
LRCFC Maroon controlled the first half, although second half was more even, and the last 15 minutes was relentless pressure by Armadale Falcons as they sought the equaliser.
Keir Semple in the Rose goal pulled off two dramatic saves in the final minute, to maintain the clean sheet and win the Cup for Linlithgow.
Congratulations to both teams for a terrific display of football and sportsmanship. Armadale Falcons having won the league the prior day following results, can also be very satisfied with a terrific season.
