Edinburgh University could make Scottish Cup history on Saturday (push-off 4pm) if they beat favourites Grange in the showpiece game.

The students have never won the silverware and have been runners-up twice in recent years.

Grange, who have won the cup five times, were crowned Division One winners last weekend, coach David Knipe masterminding a campaign in which they only lost one game in 18 outings.

They claimed 67 goals in the process with Frank Ryan, Luke Cranney and captain Cammie Fraser plus youngsters Callum MacKenzie and Jacob Tweedie all pitching in.

Grange also won both the league games 3-1 and then 4-1 but coach Knipe said: “Both league matches have been really good close matches so I think the final will be the same.”

Edinburgh finished sixth in the league, winning only three games but they won at Grove Menzieshill and Western Wildcats en route to the cup final.

Their coach, Graham Moodie, said: “This is going to be a really tough game. Grange are the best team in the land.

“Our league games against them have been competitive and we`ve had good spells against them.”

He added: “We have to go for it on Saturday if we`re going to have any chance of winning.”
