Jack Britton Rosebowl 2017
Scottish Amateur FA Select 4
Northern AFL 1
(Saturday 13th May 2017 - Lesser Hampden)
After three years of disappointment the Scottish Amateur FA and Bruce McNaught have the Jack Britton Rosebowl back in their possession.
In a sparking display of attacking football they overwhelmed the Northern AFL at Lesser Hampden on Saturday. It would be Shaun Martin (Craigshill Thistle AFC) who opened the scoring with a neat header that seemed to settle the Scottish team. However, as the first half progressed the visitors eventually looked the part and minutes before the break Joe McNeill (Crumlin Star) got forward with intent to draw the game level.
After all their effort this was a blow to the home side but they recovered their composure when Andrew McGown (Bannockburn AFC) picked a pass up on the edge of the 18-yard box before steading himself to fire past the efforts of Shane Harrison (Rathfriland Rangers) in the Irish goal.
After that the Scottish lads made and scorned several chances before they were rewarded late in the game. Sami Mitchell (Bowhill Rovers) would get in the clear once again but this time he found the spot with a wonderful curing shot into the back post, then within minutes Sean Heaver (Doune Castle AFC) made it four with a determined run and smart finish.
Scenes of joy and relief followed well into the reception at Hampden Park. At the reception the players from both sides were presented with a medal to mark the occasion while the Scottish players also picked up their well-deserved International Caps.
The match officials and management teams were also were a presented with suitable mementoes of the occasion.
Then another highlight of the evening when the “Bob Lamberton” Man of the Match was awarded to Toni Jaconelli (Craigshill Thistle). It added to the occasion that Bob was in attendance to hand over the Quaich. The Scottish Captain Andrew McGown was also spurred on to make a speech which he delivered in style as he thanked everyone for their efforts and how proud he was of his teammates on the day.
