GOAL hero Stephen Wilson is relishing the prospect of lining up in the third Macron Scottish Junior Cup final of his career with Auchinleck Talbot after playing a major role in their progress to an all-Ayrshire showdown with Largs Thistle.

Stephen and brother Graham each scored a goal in both legs as the mighty Talbot ran out 6-1 aggregate winners against Lochee United.

Speaking after the match, Stephen said: “We played really well and it was great to keep a clean sheet. We kept going even at 2-0 up and it was a good performance. Hopefully we can go on and win. It’s still special to reach a Scottish Cup final, some of the players will have been there six times.

“The fans and the players want to be here.”

However in typical Talbot style Stephen is pushing for honours on other fronts.

He said: “We must concentrate on the league, we still want to win it and also the West of Scotland Cup. Firstly we are Clydebank on Wednesday and away to Kilbirnie on Saturday.”

Manager Tommy Sloan was delighted with his side as they stormed into the showpiece event.

He said: “It was a hard one for us, a lot of people said the game was by. They looked a bit dangerous for the first 20 minutes until we scored and it was a good individual goal. The performance was much better in the second half. It’s great to be through. It’s great be involved in the biggest game in the calendar.”

It will be the master and apprentice as Sloan pits his wits in the final on Sunday, June 2 at New Douglas Park against former Talbot team-mate Stuart “Arnie” Davidson, the Largs boss. Rugby Park is unavailable as the turf is being relaid.

He said: “Arnie scored the winner in 2009 and has done really well down there.

It’s a pity the tie’s not in Ayrshire but we look forward to it. Before that we have two and three games a week so it will be tough.”
