NORTH Berwick FC's under-15s won the Fife & Lothians Cup in nail-biting fashion with a 3-2 penalty shoot-out victory over Cramond FC this afternoon.

Played at Bonnyrigg Rose's New Dundas Park, the final went to penalties after North Berwick's Callum Jack came off the bench to score a dramatic injury-time equaliser to tie the match at 2-2 after 90 minutes.

North Berwick ended the first 45 minutes 1-0 ahead after Charlie Macintyre stroked home an early penalty after being fouled.

But Cramond, undefeated in the league after 16 games, came back strong in the second half with two goals and looked to be taking the trophy home before Jack's late strike sent the East Lothian fans in the crowd into raptures.

Cramond scored the first penalty of the shoot-out before North Berwick captain Daniel Smith missed from the spot. 

However, North Berwick keeper Oscar Sewera pulled off a great save to deny Cramond's second penalty taker and then Callum Jack blasted home to make the score 1-1.

The Edinburgh side, who had already beaten North Berwick twice in the league this season, took a 2-1 advantage before North Berwick's Joseph Gerald powered his penalty into the net to make it 2-2.

The South East Region Youth Football Association final then swung in the county side's favour when Cramond's fourth penalty taker blasted over the bar and North Berwick's Lewis Scott calmly side-footed home for 3-2.

And there were wild scenes of celebration when North Berwick goalie Sewera saved Cramond's fifth and final penalty with his feet and ensured the cup was heading home to East Lothian.

North Berwick head coach Stephen Bedford said: "Myself and my coaching team - Stephen O'Rourke, Fabien Trachsler and Peter Fraser - are extremely proud of the boys.

"This season we implemented a change in formation and pushed the boys harder in training and they have done all we could ask of them.

"With two minutes to go and a goal behind, I asked Callum Jack if he was able to go back on and he asked: 'What to do?' so I told him: 'To score a goal' and, a minute later, following a great passing move, he did just that.

"The rest was a blur, really. . . I couldn't watch the penalties after the first two."
