Vale spot on to lift Potts Cup.

Abbey Vale lifted their second trophy of the season on Wednesday night as they beat Threave Rovers to win the Potts Cup.

It joins the South of Scotland League Cup in the Maryfield Park trophy cabinet and keeps up Vale's perfect record in cup finals, winning all four they've made since they joined the South.

League champions Threave opened the scoring in the first half before Keiran Pirrie's header took the game to extra-time.

Again Threave scored first, this time Dylan Cairnie equalising to send the game to a penalty shoot-out that Vale won 5-4. It was the final game of the season for Frazer Brolls and Allan Clark's side and the perfect way to sign off for the summer.

Threave have plenty of opportunities to make up for that disappointment, having booked their place in the final of the Haig Gordon Cup after beating Creetown 7-1 on Monday night.

Connor Jamieson opened the scoring with Roman Soltys adding a hat-trick before the interval, although Creetown did find the net through Bobby Landers.

However the rout continued after the restart with Grant Middlemiss, Ben Irving and Steven Couper scoring to send their side through to the final with Mid Annandale on Wednesday night Tonight, Threave have another cup final as they host Stranraer in the Tweedie Cup final.
