The tightest of cup finals saw Gala Fairydean edge past Hawick – thanks to a Dan Hill extra-time goal.

The Teries had started the game in perfect style with an early strike from Matthew Linton.

But Nathan Henderson equalised at the back post to pull the game into extra time.

In a tense extra period, both teams went close to scoring before Hill’s close-range shot squeezed into the net. Gala coach George Fairgrieve said: “It was a really close game between two sides who are evenly matched.

“We have had a few comments from people on the way we play.

“We are always trying to play passing football and today we created so many chances.

“The effort was unbelievable and I have to thank fellow coaches Callum Caverhill, who deals with lot of the untidy stuff behind the scenes, and Mark Darling.”
