The Motherwell fan's team FPC took a break from IFA league fixtures last week to pick up their first silverware of the season, courtesy of a win in the final of the eight-team ScotNet 2012 tournament.
The competition was organised by the fans' team counterparts at Airdrie and this charity event also raised £500 for St Andrew's Hospice. The venue was the Stirling University campus in Bridge of Allan on Saturday 19th May.
FPC opened their group with a 2 - 2 draw with Dunfermline, despite having the bulk of the attacking play during the 30 minute match. Lessons were learned though, as the two sloppy goals were the last ones the side would lose in open play during the tournament. Troon were despatched with a little more style, Craig Anderson notching two goals in a comfortable 5 - 1 win. Next up were Stirling, who succumbed to the Motherwell side 3 - 0.
After Motherwell topped the group, IFA Scottish title rivals Kaisayr awaited in the semi-final after finishing runners up in the other section. Goals from Fox and Totten were enough to see off a tired Ayr fans' side, which left a final against Clyde. FPC ran out comfortable 3 -0 winners to lift the silverware for the first time in this, the inaugural ScotNet tournament.
