East Kilbride made history today by recording their 27th successive victory, surpassing the record set by Ajax in the 1970s.

Two goals from Declan Hughes and one from Ross McNeil secured a 3-1 win over BSC Glasgow at K-Park and a place in the proverbial record books for Martin Lauchlan’s men.

Proverbial because the Guinness World Records has refused to acknowledge their run of 27 wins – one better than Ajax’s run – as it has taken place outside the top flight of senior football.

In September, Dundee United goalkeeper Cammy Bell faced a similar snub after saving three penalties in the same Ladbrokes Scottish Championship match versus Dunfermline.
