As fans watch their teams week after week in hopes of seeing their heroes earn points and, ultimately, silverware, there’s also a battle between the people making the pies!

That’s right, the 2023 World Championship Scotch Pie Awards just happened and there was a football flavor to it.

One of the categories was dedicated solely to pies offered at soccer fields across the country.

Much like the Scottish Cup this weekend, it pitted Premiership sides against non-League teams, but this time in a tasty head-to-head confrontation.

Although the competition is called the “World Championship Scotch Pie” awards, it’s by no means just scotch pies vying for the soccer award.

Instead, any pie, or even any savory offering, can be offered for the gong.

While the Scottish Cup suffered one of the biggest shocks of all time when Darvel knocked out Aberdeen on Monday night, it was a Premiership side that took victory at the Pie Awards.

It was Livingston’s Scotch Pie, made by Pars Foods Ltd, that won the top prize as the best football pie in Scotland.

It was the only cake to enter the coveted ‘diamond’ category, with two others earning ‘gold’ status.

Somewhat confusingly, it was a macaroni pie that finished one of the finalists in the scotch pie on offer at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

It’s understood? Well, it was Aberdeen’s macaroni pie – also made by Pars Foods – which was next in line, alongside a doner pie offered by Bonnyrigg Rose and made by Pastel Bakery.

Pittodrie Pie, the Dons’ staple, made by Murdoch Allan, was given ‘silver’ status, alongside offerings from Hearts and out-of-league Burntisland shipyard.

The main prize went to James Pirie & Sons, based in Newtyle in Angus.

A former World Championship Scotch Pie award winner, the family-run butcher has grabbed headlines after baking special St Johnstone pies and pastries ahead of the memorable double Saints Cup success.
