ALLOA ROVERS U15s won the Challenge Cup Final on Sunday as they dispatched table toppers Milton.

The final, which took place at Westfield Park, Denny, the home of Dunipace Juniors, saw Rovers start the game well and went close on several occasions.

Whyte, Herd, De Vries and Szafraniec all had chances, but found the Milton keeper in form to keep them at bay.

At the other end, however, Stenhouse, in goals for Rovers, had very little to do which was a testament to the Rovers backline who were resolute throughout.

The second half began with Rovers piling the pressure on straight away and breaking the deadlock with nice passing football and De Vries bagging his first of the afternoon.

Outstanding team work and determination really started to show for Rovers with De Vries grabbing the next two goals and claiming the match ball.

It was then over to Szafraniec who twisted and turned on the edge of the box before curling a right-footer beyond the Milton keeper.

But Rovers weren't finished there – man-of-the-match De Vries scored his fourth and Rovers' fifth with a wonder strike from 40 yards which nestled in the top corner of the Milton net as the crowd went wild.

In the end, the cup final finished with a thumping 5-0 victory for the Wee County side.

A spokesman for the club said: "On behalf of Alloa Rovers we would like to thank all of our supporters for coming along and cheering the boys on to victory.

"We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Tom Carruthers of Devon River Riding Centre for sponsoring our strip throughout this season.

"The club were also awarded the bronze SFA quality mark re-accreditation at the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday the 23rd.

"We would like to thank our Secretary Brian Candlish for all his hard work behind the scenes which was influential in our re-accreditation of the award."
