Striker Thomas Kilmartin ensured The Lang ended the season the same as they started it – with a late bit of drama. He rifled home a 95th-minute penalty which secured the title and sparked wild celebrations on the pitch and in the stands.
Neilston pulled the game back to 3-3 before John Gemmell was sent off on 89 minutes after protesting the ref’s decision to rule out his goal. Kilmartin then became the hero from the spot.
