Eyemouth progressed to the second round of the Alex Jack Cup with a last-minute winner from Leigh Walker, writes George Riley.

After a slow start, the game came to life in the second half as Kelso scored two goals within five minutes of the restart.

The first came from a mistake from Paul Tansey, who misplaced a back pass, allowing Calum McClure to fire home into an empty net.

The home side made it two when Des Burnett scored from close range.

Eyemouth reduced the deficit within a minute when leading striker Steven Shennon found room in the box to head home a cross by Kiren Bullen.

And in the next attack, Shennon was given space in the box and he took advantage by firing a shot past the diving Turnbull.

In the last minute, when a move down the right found Walker on the left side of the box, the full back side-footed a shot into the net to give the visitors victory.
