Men's 1's clinch the double

Kelburne 5

Inverleith 0
 
The mens 1's travelled to Peffermill looking to regain the Scottish Cup but knew they faced a tough task against Inverlieth. Burne were without the injured John Christie and Gareth Hall, who had failed to shake off a knee injury.
 
In front of a large crowd burne started well, and were controlling the game with Mark Ralph and Willie Marshall probing for gaps in the Inverleith defence. Burne took the lead after 12 minutes when following good work from Alan Forsyth and Kenny Bain resulted in Derek Salmond turning the ball into his own net to put Kelburne ahead.
 
Burne continued to press for a second, while Inverleith were always dangerous on the break, although they were unable to create any real clear cut chances.
Kelburne added a second goal when a fantatstic pass from Josh Cairns found Ross Stott unmarked in the D and he was able to touch the ball past the stranded Inverleith goalkeeper. Burne almost added a third just before the interval but Mark Ralph's drag flick shaved the outside of the post.
 
Inverleith attempted to press higher up the pitch in the second half but they were soon on the back foot when Chris Nelson crossed for Alan Forsyth to make it 3 nil with a sliding finish. Minutes later Burne were awarded a penalty and veteran defender Ralph stepped up to slot the ball low to the keeper's right.
 

Burne then turned on the style and were unlucky not to add to their tally when Michael Christie touched over a Josh Cairns cross and Kenny Bain was unable to add the finishin touches to a one touch passing move which involved the whole team. Burne were able to add a fifth when from their third corner of the game Ralph was able to score his second with a trademark high drag flick.

 
Inverleith looked for a consolation in the final minutes but a good save from Mark Fulton in goal kept the clean sheet intact. The clock counted down and the celebrations began.
 
A fantastic effort by the team this year as they added the Scottish Cup to their 6th successive league title, while they went through the season with a 100% record.
