A late goal from Taylor Steven was enough for Hutchison Vale to secure the John Crawford cup against Tynecastle, in a hotly contested affair.
Hutchison were the first to threaten in the final when talented winger Bruno Davidson showed some terrific skill down the left-wing and managed to find Lewis Foster whose low driven shot struck the post and went out of play in the first minute of the match. Hutchison continued their pressure, this time in the form of a long-ranged Jacob Comerford strike in the second minute of the match which sailed over the bar.
Tynecastle had their first real chance of the game when Corin Brown managed to get on the end of a Samuel Nicolson cross, but saw his header go just over the bar in the 10th minute. Tynecastle had another great chance to go ahead in the 13th minute when Brown was played in again but was denied by a superb stop from close-range by Hutchison keeper Ruairidh Adams.
Tynecastle threatened again in this end-to-end affair when Brown once again created another chance but saw his half-volley fly over the bar in the 18th minute. Hutchison were the next to go forward when defender Rhyad Jelly had his header denied by a fantastic save from Tynecastle keeper Josh Philip in the 26th minute.
Steven had a great chance to put Hutchison ahead in the 32nd minute when his powerful effort was once again denied by the strong hands of Philip who parried the effort out for a corner. The deadlock was finally broken from the resulting corner when after a series of unsuccessful clearances from the Tynecastle defence, Jelly found the ball fall to his fight and proceeded to rifle the ball into the top-right corner putting his team in a winning position going into the second half.
