Colony Park final league match of the season saw them face second place Banchory with both teams keen to finish the season with the unbeaten tag.

With Colony managing to secure the title in midweek Banchory kindly gave the Colony boys the guard of honour onto the pitch at the beginning of the match. All players and supporters clapped the boys on to create a great atmosphere.

An early chance was created with a Jamie Seatter header well held by the Banchory goalkeeper.

Colony continued to dominate play and bossed the midfield area throughout and it was no surprise when they took a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute. Fine footwork by Beattie in midfield created space out on the left and he put a great through ball for top scorer Adam SMITH to finish well past the away keeper.

The second goal of the afternoon came in 12 minutes with a fine move by Colony. Hinks crossed well for Smith who calmly laid off on the edge of the box allowing WLSON to strike from 20 yards into the bottom corner giving the keeper no chance.

The third goal was soon after with Lewis BEATTIE scoring well from a Smith pass, 3-0 to Colony Park..

Colony continued to dominate play and it was no surprise when they increased their lead on the half hour mark with another fine goal. Stuart Simmond created space on the edge of the box for striker SMITH to score his second and Colony’s fourth of the game, his shot from 18 yards bouncing over the keeper into the net.

Goal number five was the pick of the bunch after 32 minutes, skipper Jones clearing well to Wilson who calmly put through Hinks who in turn put through SMITH for his hat trick.

Just on half time Banchory made a rare visit into the Colony box and a cruel bounce of the ball catching the hand of a Colony defender gave them a penalty which was despatched by Nathan
 DAVIDSON despite a fine effort from Faskin to save the spot kick.

Colony controlled the tempo of the second half of the game without creating many more chances while Banchory were restricted by solid teamwork and keeper Faskin.

With two minutes to go Colony finished the game in style with a fine individual goal from SEATTER, Jamie picking the ball up just inside the Banchory half and running past the defence
before scoring high into the net.

The final whistle went soon after to great celebrations from the Colony boys. A fantastic season for the boys with then remaining unbeaten in the league, winning 17 and drawing 1 of their 18 games and getting to the semi final of both league cup competitions.
