TRANENT Juniors' East of Scotland Cup hero Murray Jackson revealed the secret to his penalty shootout success – YouTube.

The goalkeeper saved two of Bonnyrigg Rose’s three penalties to send the East Lothian fans into raptures on Saturday.

Jackson, who joined from Newtongrange Star, revealed he had been putting in the hours both on and off the park – just in case spot kicks were required. He duly denied ex-Haddington and Musselburgh striker Sean Jamieson and Dean Brett.

He said: “You’ve got to be confident going into the shootout.

“I did some homework before I came. I watched Bonnyrigg Rose v Kelty Hearts on YouTube and I watched their penalty shootouts. That’s how I knew Sean’s way. I didn’t see Dean’s penalty online but I managed to get it.

“It’s great, unbelievable, and just goes to show you if you do your homework then that helps you.”

Jackson, who was involved in Musselburgh Athletic’s journey to the Scottish Junior Cup final two years ago, works with Amazon and had a 5am shift the following day but promised to be involved with the celebrations.

The 24-year-old was quick to heap praise on the management team of Darren Smith and Kenny Rafferty.

He said: “It’s unbelievable. We all knew and we all had belief that we could come here and win the game. Honestly, it is fantastic from everyone – throughout the committee, Darren and Kenny motivated us all to get to this point.”
