Banks o’ Dee striker Jack Henderson insists they have the team that can cause Cove Rangers problems in the Evening Express Aberdeenshire Cup final.
The Spain Park outfit are looking to become the first Junior team to win the famous old competition.
It has been a dream run to the final for Banks o’ Dee.
On the way to the showpiece they have beaten Inverurie Locos, Aberdeen Reserves and Turriff United – scoring 16 goals in the process.
Ahead of this evening’s final against Cove, Henderson – who’s found the net six times in the tournament – says they will cause the Highland League side problems with their lethal attack.
He said: “We do take a lot of confidence from the results we’ve had in this cup.
“Some of the scorelines we’ve had have been great, we score goals which is good.
“I’m sure it will be the same tonight that we’ll score.
“Hopefully we can just keep them out at the other end.
“I think we’ve got a great squad here and the squad we’ve got is capable of going far in all kinds of competitions.
“So I definitely think we’ll cause them problems in the final.
“We’ve got a young squad and one way to look at is that we’ve got lots of energy and no fear really.
“We’ve also got a few older heads in the squad who keep us on the right path and keep our feet on the ground.”
Personally Henderson has enjoyed playing in the Shire Cup and testing himself against players from a higher level.
Having averaged two goals a game so far in the competition the attacker is brimming with confidence and hopes he can be on target again this evening at Harlaw Park.
Henderson added: “I’ve loved playing in this competition.
“It’s good to be able to test yourselves against players who are playing at a higher level.
“If you perform well it’s a big confidence boost for you and hopefully I can take it into the final as well.
“I want to keep going where I’m going, keep playing and scoring goals and see what happens.”
Henderson would love to score in the final.
But he says the important thing for Dee is trying to become the first Junior team to win the Shire Cup and as a result admits it doesn’t matter who finds the net.
He said: “The dream is to win.
“It would be great to score but the dream is to win and if we come back with the cup then it won’t matter who scores.
“Winning matters most.
“It would mean loads to the club to win this cup.
“We love big games and we like to win trophies so it would be great to get another cup in the cabinet.
“It would be unbelievable if we could become the first Junior team to win it.
“We’ve got the squad to do it and we’d be chuffed if we could.”
