Lothian Thistle Hutchison Vale striker Sam Nhamburo has won the William Hill Scottish Cup '˜Goal of the First Round' award.

The youngster’s blistering half-volley sealed a 3-2 victory over Highland League outfit Inverurie Loco Works to secure the East of Scotland League champions a second-round clash with League Two leaders Stirling Albion at Forthbank tomorrow.

Sam’s goal was the second last-gasp winner he’d produced in this season’s competition having come off the bench to score in a preliminary round one victory at Kelty Hearts in August.

Nhamburo. who was born in Zimbabwe before moving to Scotland with his family almost a decade ago, said after his goal: “I knew it was going in as soon as I hit it. I think I should be getting a call-up for Zimbabwe! This is the biggest competition we play in so that’s our motivation to keep going.”
