For the record, Tarff beat St Cuthbert Wanderers 4-3 on aggregate over two legs. It was a close run thing during the second game at St Mary’s Park, Kirkcudbright when the home team scored two goals in the last three minutes to take the score to 3-0 in their favour but Tarff held on and, for the first time in the club’s history, the Scottish Qualifying Cup was handed over to Tarff Rovers captain Johnny Hanlon.
