LOCHORE Welfare produced a rousing late comeback to win the King Cup this afternoon (Sunday).

After falling a goal behind in the second half, Joe Kirby equalised before Ewan Sutherland grabbed the winner with five minutes remaining.

The game was held at Whitburn's Central Park, but the King Cup trophy will be on its way to Lochore's Central Park in Fife tonight.

Despite struggling for league form this season, the King Cup has been a welcome escape for manager James Adam's men.

The club entered in the second round and bested Heriot-Watt University 3-2 away from home.

Welfare then defeated Whitburn 2-0 on the road in a cup tie that had to be rescheduled after two postponements.

Another away success followed as Whitehill Welfare lost 1-0 in the fourth round.

A home draw was then presented to Lochore who duly dispatched Bo'ness Athletic 1-0 at Central Park in the semi-final earlier this month.

Lochore had already lost twice to Dunipace this season in the East of Scotland First Division, but it was third time lucky for Adam's side as the late fight back earned them the silverware.
