Last night’s Scottish FA Youth Cup final between Dunfermline, who included three Borderers in their starting line-up, and Celtic ended with the Glasgow giants winning 3-1.

Celtic took the lead with Jamie Lindsay after 53 minutes. Bahrudin Atajic’s cross met the head of John Herron who rattled the crossbar, but Lindsay was there to curl his shot past Ryan Goodfellow, who hails from Earlston.

Celtic made it 2-0 after 79 minutes when Atajac found Michael Miller’s cross from the left wing.

The Pars grabbed one back less than one minute later with Selkirk man Allan Smith and his powerful drive past Celtic goalkeeper Leonardo Fasan.

The game was sealed when Denny Johnstone made it 3-1 to the Glasgow side six minutes from time, nodding a header past Goodfellow.

The final Borderer in the Dunfermline side was Blair Henderson, also of Earlston.
