Vale of Clyde F.C moved through to their own inter-team tournament final by virtue of a comfortable 8-0 win against the Cambuslang Football Academy Under-21s. The Tin Pail started very slowly despite having loads of possession without creating any real clear-cut chances in the opening 30 minutes.
However, the first goal arrived with a lovely header from recent signing, Marcus Fraser, and that made it 3 in 3 for the young forward.
Vale made some changes at the break and moved the ball a lot quicker in the second half.
Their second goal came from another new recruit, forward Sean Monaghan,. A good cross and clinical finish. By this time Vale had made what they thought was all the chances.
Przemyslaw Dachnowicz aka Pinio grabbed his first for the club but hurt his hamstring in the process. It has to be said the young Cambuslang side never gave up, and worked hard with and without the ball for the. entire 90 minutes.
Martin Welsh, with his first counter for the Vale, scored at the back post after a good diving save by the young Lang goalkeeper. Lee Martin followed onto the scoresheet with a good header.
Sean Monaghan and Martin Welsh found the net with good finishes before Kieran Chalmers (yet another new pre-season signing) scored a long range left footed effort into the roof of the net.

Earlier in the day, at the same venue (10am kick-off). Vale of Clyde Saturday Morning AFC go head-to-head against Cambuslang Football Academy Under-21 for the 3rd and 4th place.
