IRVINE Meadow took home the silverware after a victory in the James ’Hammy’ Glen” invitational tournament in Kilbirnie at the weekend.

Medda started the competition with a relatively easy 3-1 victory against Greenock Morton U-20s on Saturday.

They would face Kilbirnie, who beat Dalry 5-2 in their first match, in Sunday’s final.

It proved to be a cracking game, with both sides going close in the first half and good defensive displays from the clubs.

The Medda keeper saved a penalty in the second half, but it was Kilbirnie who continued to push and finally took the lead with a quick tap in.

The score was soon levelled with a Meadow goal securing a 1-1 draw.

There was very little to choose between the two Ayrshire sides and it all came down to spot kicks in the end.

1897, netted comfortably to lift the trophy with a 4-3 penalty victory..
