Hurlford Thistle’s heroes have brought the Scottish Amateur Cup home for the first time in the club’s history, with a 2-0 win over Colville Park in the final at Livingston.

Michael Mullen and Ryan Caddis were the goalscoring stars for Thistle, who made up for their final disappointment four years ago against Queen’s Park by lifting the trophy for the first time.

Mullen opened the scoring with 20 minutes to go with a great solo effort when he a high ball before taking it past three defenders and firing home from the edge of the box.

And Ryan Caddis made sure the cup would be coming to Hurlford five minutes later when he fired in a free-kick from the right that was deflected on its way past the Park keeper.

Any hopes Colville Park had of getting back into the game were ended shortly afterwards when Alan Lister was sent off just for a crude challenge on Andrew Gilgallon.

A spokesman for the Scottish Amateur Football Association said: “Congratulations to Hurlford Thistle AFC and commiserations to Colville Park.

“A tremendous game played in the right spirit, with an appreciative audience enjoying all that is good about the amateur game. Thanks again to Alistair, Teresa and all at Fosters for their continued support of our National competitions.”
