Colville Park will be out to lift the West of Scotland Cup for the second time in three years when they take on Greenock HSFP in the final at New Douglas Park in Hamilton on Friday night.

Greenock qualified for the final last Saturday when they beat Hurlford 1-0, setting up a clash with Colville Park who beat Harestanes in a penalty shootout in their semi-final, also at New Douglas Park, the previous Friday.

The sides have already met twice in the Central Scottish AFL this season with one win apiece.

Colville Park romped to a 5-1 win at Greenock but then went down 3-1 when their opponents visited Dalziel Park.

The West has been the main focus of Colville’s attention this season following an early exit from the Scottish Cup.

And they warmed up for Friday’s final with a 3-2 victory over Wellhouse last week, a win which ended their opponents’ hopes of catching leaders Harestanes in the title race.

Colville Park have been in the final of the trophy - sponsored by Colville Park Country Club - on several occasions, the last being two years ago when they defeated Hurlford 2-0 at New Douglas Park.

Friday’s match will kick-off at 7.30pm and admission will be £5 for adults and £3 for concessions.
