East Kilbride FC retained the Lowland League Cup, winning a penalty shoot-out 4-2, after 120 minutes of play had produced no goals against Gretna 2008 at Galashiels on Sunday.


Despite striking the woodwork on FOUR occasions during the match, Martin Lauchlan's men could find no way through, and the shoot-out finally decided the outcome.


Although skipper Barry Russell missed EK's first kick, Jacob Kean saved brilliantly twice, to put Kilby in pole position.


Successful strikes from Sean Winter, Anton Brady and Martin McBride then meant that BJ Coll had the chance to win it for EK with the fifth kick, and the full-back capped a fine season with the winning strike.


The victory ensured EK finished off the season with nine wins in a row, and having secured three trophies, as well as a memorable run to the last 16 of the William Hill Scottish Cup.


The team have now won FIVE trophies in three seasons and will approach next season in great spirits after a fantastic campaign in 2015/16.
