FirParkCorner FC 6 Geordie Munrovers 1

Last updated : 11 July 2006 By Firparkcorner

The nerves were settled for the Motherwell boys early doors as Joseph Lynas seemed to rediscover his scoring form, banging in two early goals in quick succession thanks to some excellent linking play with strike partner Tonner. Two became three on the half hour mark, and it was Lynas again in the middle of the action. He dribbled to the bye-line and cut the ball back for John Hendry to send a left-footed drill through the 'keepers legs at the second attempt.

FPC top-scorer Lynas was back amongst the goals on the stroke of half time as an excellent move involving Mitchell and Galloway down the right-hand side resulted in an easy finish for the pint-sized striker.

Into the second half, it was still one-way traffic as the Corner aimed to finish the season on a high. Ross Galloway was unlucky not to get his name on the score sheet on a couple of occasions before John Hendry grabbed his second goal of the match, and indeed second of the season, with a stunning freekick.

The burly superstar strode forward magnificently before being hacked down on the edge of the penalty area. The big man picked himself up, dusted himself down and curled the ball into the goalkeepers left-hand corner to send the FPC bench into dreamland. Goal number six wasn't long in coming, and it was the turn of captain Gavin Hepworth to get in on the scoring act, powerring home a header from a well-placed Dave Hendry corner.

To their credit, the Fifers did rally and earned a late consolation, with a forward doing well to beat Joe Lynas between the sticks with a fine header but the day belonged to FPC and, in reality, the win could have been even more resounding.

Sadly, however, the title dream was dashed later in the afternoon as word reached Jack Daniels that KaisAyr had succumbed to a 4-0 reversal to send the championship to Edinburgh once again.

Despite ending the campaign without silverwear, Fraser's troops can hold their heads high, having recorded by far their best season ever and reaching heights that would have been thought impossible just a short time ago. The boys can look forward to next season with renewed vigour and safe in the knowledge that the league trophy is well within their reach.

Team: Clark, Mitchell, Hepworth, Ramage, Speedie, J Hendry, Miller, O'Neill, Galloway, J Lynas, Tonner.
