This Leage Cup semi-final was played at Tall Oaks on a lovely sunny afternoon, although the grass pitch was poor as the ball continuously bobbled whenever someone tried to make a pass.
The first half was poor quality from both teams although Beechwood did manage to score just before the break. The second half was not much better. Although Fernieside were the much better team, the Beechwood goalkeeper Calum Willis was very good and helped Beechwood hold onto a narrow 1-0 win.
In the first half nothing really happened apart from a goal and two substitutions. The first substitution came for Beechwood after nine minutes with Gordon Strachan coming on.
The next substitution came in the 21st minute for Fernieside with Liam McIntosh. The first and only goal came in the 41st minute with lovely play from Harry Devine on the left hand side. Then he played the ball across the face of the goal for Jamie McDermaid who blasted it into the back of the open net from five yards out. The score remained 1-0 to Bechwood going into the break. The Fernieside coach was not looking very happy about that, especially given how Fernieside had been the better team.
