Gala Fairydean staged a remarkable comeback – only to lose in extra time.

A Connor Hook double sent the final into an additional period, but the Fishermen, led by Daniel Combe, proved too strong.

Eyemouth coach Allan Ponton said: “We have goalkeeper Thomas Lindsay to thank for some great saves.

Combe put in a man-of-the-match showing for The Gulls, and opened the scoring in the second third of the tie with a fine goal.

A Cameron Frater strike seemed to have ensured the trophy was heading back to Eyemouth in the final third, but Hook netted twice, his second with the last kick of normal time. However, Combe struck again as Gala began to tire in extra time and further goals from Evan Smith and Arran Middlemiss put gloss on the final scoreline.
