Trinity start this game just a week after their 3-1 triumph over St Margaret's whereas Calderglen played their semi-final a month ago. The teams on show today have met once before which ended in a 1-1 draw. 
Cadlderglen kicked off today's match and it was clear they were up for this game.
They dominated the first five minutes and took the lead on the sixth when a free-kick was delivered in by McLellan which lead to Trinity goalkeeper Farrell making a fabulous double save but unfortunately for him Woodhouse was there to tap in the third attempt.
Calderglen had the chance to extend their lead when a long ball found Inglis who took it down but fired straight at Farrell. 
It was then Trinity who started to find there footing in the game after a rough first 15 minutes.
They found an equaliser from striker Lewis Cameron when he curled home from just inside the box. 
Minutes later McCaskell nutmegged his opponent on the wing and crossed the ball into the box which got a loud appeal for handball but was turned away from the referee. 
The next chance for Calderglen was a goal when McCaskell played a maginficent cross-field pass which found McKenna who took it down and slotted it past helpless Farrell.
At half-time Calderglen deservedly led. 
Trinity started the second-half very well and looked like a completely different team. 
They equalised when Kelly played a fantastic cross-field pass to Henry who brought the ball down and crossed to the back post for Cameron to volley home his second of the game.
Calderglen responded nearly instantly when a quick free-kick was played to McKenna who burst into the box and fired a shot low at goal which Fareell done well to adjust and make the save.
Calderglen had another chance to take the lead when a corner was played quickly along the ground which found McKenna who somehow turned it over. 
Trinity punished them when Cameron bagged his hat-trick when a free kick was delivered by McWilliams which was flicked onto the post but Cameron was there to take the second attempt.
The game changed slightly on the 77th minute when Trinity's Neeson was sent off for a second bookable offence when he went flying into a challenge.
Calderglen had their chance to equalise when a corner was floated in and landed at the feel of McKenna who fires his half volley over the bar from six yards out.
Instead it would be Trinity who put themselves two goals ahead when a brilliant through ball found McGarvey who pulled the ball onto his left foot and curled into the far left corner.
The scoring wasn't done there.
In the 91st minute, Trinity's Tobin was sent off for pulling down his man in the box which gave Calderglen a chance to pull one back.
MacDonald stepped up and fired his penalty away nicely but it wasn't enough. 
Trinity held on in the last nervous minutes to win the Lanarkshire cup.

Star Player

The home star player was a really easy choice. It had to be the number 9 Lewis Cameron. The big man played fantastic. He scored 3 goals, was always encouraging his team mates and held the ball up very well to ease the pressure at decisive times of the game. He was all over the pitch hustling for the ball.
The Away star player was McKenna. The speedy winger caused his full back so many problems which ended up in him being sent off. He was the main danger for Calderglen. He scored a lovely goal to put his team ahead for the second time and take them into the break with a 2-1 advantage.
Magic Moment

The home teams magic moment had to be the goal from McGarvey that secured them the cup.
The Magic Moment for the away team was when they took the lead for the second time after a fantastic pass and a cool finish by McKenna.
