A substantial crowd of enthusiastic supporters cheered on their respective teams in a very friendly manner and witnessed a very high standard of football with many individuals showing a tremendous level of skill in their ball control and distribution of their passes.
A total of 84 goals were scored throughout the evening with the final goal being a “Golden” goal during the final match between Laurencekirk A team, and Gourdon. The match ended with both teams on level terms, and the final resumed until a Golden goal was scored. Gourdon duly scored and lifted the trophy.
