The manager and assistant manager of Banks O'Dee, Tommy Forbes and John Wood have both lifted the Scottish Juvenile Cup as a coach within the last decade and both know how to be successful in the competition. It was now the time for Forbes and Wood to inspire this young squad and show them how to be winners.
In the second half we saw a better Banks O'Dee side that produced more danger towards goal. Former Dundee United defender Sam McGregor, the son of another former Scottish Cup winning coach Bruce McGregor, had an effort in the 50th minute which just went over Thomas Cordsey's goal.
Selkirk tje all important third goal in the 62nd minute, which was rather unfortunate for Banks O'Dee defender Clark Henderson. An effort by sub Euan Munro was deflected by the big defender with the power in the shot detailing the ball to go into the bottom left hand corner past Berton.
The heads could have went down for Banks O'Dee. However, Tommy Forbes and John Wood are two men that you don't want to let down and we soon saw Banks O'Dee reduce the leeway. Max Berton pulled one back for the Junior side on 76 minutes after going on a mazy run before finding the net.
Connor Kelly then gave the hosts a lifeline just three minutes later. He received the ball before doing the rest in finding the top right hand corner.
As you would expect with a team who are just one goal behind with minutes left, Banks O'Dee were more urgent in their quest to get themselves back into the game. With a few minutes left, Bruce Dryburgh played a long ball into Max Berton who was close to reaching the box before Thomas Cordsey pulled the player down. The keeper was on a booking so referee Liam Duncan had no option but to send the keeper off.
Off the field antics didn't affect the visitors though and they had the last laugh when a great ball reached Liam Henderson who slotted the ball past Nico Berton to seal victory.
Hamilton won 9-0 against Clachnacuddin in Inverness and Selkirk will now have a trip to the SPFL side to look forward to.
