Campbeltown & District Amateur Football League - Dalriada Cup Final

Carradale AFC  4  -   1  Southend AFC

Carradale A.F.C won its second trophy of the 2009 season on Sunday (26th July 2009) with a convincing 4-1 victory over Southend in the final of the Dalriada Cup played in front of a healthy crowd at Kinloch Park.

Carradale took the lead after half an hour, after having the best of the play during the first half. Coming close after a Keith Mitchell effort struck the bar, the men from the 'Dale eventually took the lead through David Johnstone, who scored into Southend 'keeper Jamie Hardie's right-hand side after Mitchell was felled in the penalty area.

Soon after, Carradale scored a second goal, coming through Kevin Brown, the forward slotting a low shot past Hardie, after latching onto a flick from the midfield. Despite Southend's hard graft, real chances were sparse, with Peter McKerral and Ryan Gilchrist seeing their efforts saved by Todd in the Carradale goal.

Into the second half, Carradale were again the dominant side. Around the hour mark, David Johnstone's corner found its way into the Southend goal, despite the efforts of Kenneth Galbraith on the goal-line to clear. Southend's reply was a goal from Mark McCormick, an effort that would merit winning any match, rather than being the only consolation on a disappointing day for Southend. The midfielder's strike from 25 yards out left Todd stranded in goal as it rifled inside his left-hand post.
Carradale's fourth, an own goal, sealed the victory, and the 2009 Dalriada Cup for Carradale.

The match officials for Sunday's final were referee Peter Laing, assisted by Archie Mitchell and Stanley Irwin.
