There was FA Cup success south of the border for former Aberdeen and Falkirk players as Leicester City won the FA Cup final 1-0 against Chelsea on Saturday.

Youri Tielemans scored the only goal of the game as Brendan Rodgers’ side won their first-ever FA Cup trophy. There was controversy at the end though as Wes Morgan’s own goal was ruled out by V.A.R but Leicester City managed to hold on.

Ex-SPFL men managed to get their hands on the trophy. Former Falkirk goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel captained the team on the day and turned in an admirable performance to see his team over the line. He has now won a Premier League and this major honour with Leicester City.

Former Aberdeen loan duo James Maddison and Danny Ward also lifted the cup. Maddison came on a a second half substitute for Leicester City while back-up goalkeeper Ward was an unused sub, picking up a medal after participation in earlier rounds.
