Former Socceroo Stuart Lovell (pictured right), led his Scottish Premier League team Livingston to its first ever major trophy - the CIS Insurance Cup, after a 2-0 win over Hibernian. Two quick goals in the second half from Derek Lilley and Jamie McAllister sealed the much-needed win for small club, which earlier this year went into administration. Its achievement is even more remarkable, as the club is only nine years old and it is first time since 1998 that a team has won one of the three major trophies, besides Celtic and Rangers. Lilley scored the first goal in the 50th minute and a minute later McAllister lashed home a through ball. Hibs, who knocked out both Celtic and Rangers from the Cup, tried to come back into it but never seriously threatened the Livi goal. Lovell was on hand to collect the trophy on behalf of his Livingston teammates and followed on from Josip Skoko-s success as captain of Belgian club Racing Genk two seasons ago.
