Culter boss Andy Gibson paid tribute to his players after watching them win the Superleague title on Tuesday.

It is The Deesiders’ first league title since 2007 and Gibson was impressed with the way his side wrapped it up with a 6-0 win over Hermes on Tuesday night.

Speaking after the game, Gibson said: “We wanted to win it in style and that is what we have done.

We absolutely dominated from start to finish and we will enjoy it.”

Culter’s win over Hermes meant they could not be caught by their only challenger Hall Russell United, who have set the pace for the majority of the season.

Although Culter lost to Banks O’ Dee in the semi-final of the North Regional Cup last week they still have a chance of making it a treble when they take on Fraserburgh United in the McLeman Cup final on June 4.

Gibson said: “We were disappointed to lose to Banks O’ Dee but when you put it into context we have won the Grill League Cup, we’ve won the league and in another final as well so we couldn’t ask for much better than that.

Culter still have three league games to play ahead of the McLeman Cup final, including a Deeside derby against Banchory St Ternan.

But Gibson admitted the priority now will be next month’s final.

“We will rest up until the final but we will look to win the final and make it a treble.

“I think we have played attractive football, scoring 146 goals now, and we have deserved the success.”

Culter face Banks O’ Dee at Spain Park on Thursday (May 26) then entertain Stonehaven at Crombie Park on Saturday (May 28) where they will be presented with the Superleague trophy.

The league campaign ends with a trip to Milton Park for the derby match on Monday (May 30) before the McLeman Cup final at Davidson Park, Longside the following Saturday (June 4).
