DUNFERMLINE have their eyes on the prize after advancing to the Caledonia Regional Shield final.

A date with Orkney awaits after a comfortable 39-8 win over Grangemouth Stags on Saturday.

“It’s our first chance at silverware this season and we want to win it,” captain Clarke Smith told Press Sport.

“It was a far better performance from us than the previous week against Grangemouth where we had to dig deep to win it.

“This was a timely performance from us and I was happy with the reaction after last week. We focused on ourselves rather than what they could do to us and we all did our jobs to the best of our ability.

“It was a team effort and we now have a final to look forward to.

“I’ve still yet to see a complete 80-minute performance from us yet. We’ve not had that ‘perfect’ game.

“We went out and executed our game plan in the first 20 minutes and that set us up well. I think every time we advanced into their 22, we came up with points. It was a bit psychologically draining for them.”

Danny Clarke, Angus Colson, James Clayton, Callum White and Matty Wilson went over for the McKane Park side with Adam Fraser registering the rest of the points.

A draw this week will now determine where the final against Orkney will take place, with the fixture slated for December 7.

Should they win, they’ll advance to the final four of the National Shield, with a win in the semi-final setting up a date at Murrayfield for the trophy.

Prior to the teams clashing for the Regional Shield, they’ll meet this Saturday on league duty in Tennent’s Caledonia Division One.

Smith said: “Playing Orkney will be a fantastic test for us and it will give both teams the chance to work each other out before the final.

“Playing at Murrayfield is obviously at the back of everyone’s minds but we’ve got to keep it there and focus on each match as it comes.

“They’ve been setting the pace at the top of the league but we’ve still got a game in hand. They’ve got a strong squad but they’re still a bit of an unknown to us after being relegated last year.

“I reckon it will be between ourselves and them for the league and we’ll just have to see who puts the pressure on who at the top.”

Saturday was a clean sweep of wins for the club with their second XV routing Dundee Morgan 82-0 in Division Three. Their Knights and Colts sides also tasted victory.
