Thistle too sharp for Spurs in Steven final


By Matt Leslie


Wick Thistle capped off a superb season as they defeated High Ormlie Hotspur to win the Steven Cup.

Goals from Mark Gunn and James Falconer put them 2-0 up at Lybster's Cow Park. Spurs pulled one back through James Mackintosh.

It was sweet revenge for Thistle who only days before had been hammered 7-3 at Spurs in the league – a win that earned the latter a place in the promotion/relegation play-off final against Castletown.

The Steven Cup, a competition for CAFA Division Two sides, will not be defended next year by Thistle as they clinched automatic promotion to Division One earlier this month.

Elsewhere, Castletown warmed up for their crunch showdown with Spurs as they demolished an already-relegated Thurso Swifts 7-0.

Chris Sutherland led the way with a hat-trick while Connor Mackintosh, David McGill, Jack McKechnie and Adam Gunn were also on target.

Spurs limbered up for Friday's play-off with a 1-0 local derby win at Thurso Pentland. Ben Gordon grabbed the winner for High Ormlie.

There was some good news for rock-bottom Division Two side Top Joes.

Having lost every single league game played this season, they finally came good in the last match of this summer's campaign with a 3-2 home win against Keiss.

Derek Munro, William Cannop and Craig Wares netted for Joes while Keiss's strikes came via Alan Steven and Ben Mackay.
