Having missed the chance to win the title in midweek the corks were no doubt popping all weekend as Penicuik clinched it on Saturday.

Needing just one point to finally win the championship, Penicuik knew they had a game on their hands with Fauldhouse still retaining title ambitions themselves.

A good run and shot from Chilton in 13 minutes fully tested Bejaoui who gathered at the second attempt.

It was a tough battle with the home crowd quiet but they found their voice in the 21st minute when Penicuik were awarded a penalty, and skipper Cunnison made no mistake from the spot to put Penicuik 1-0 up!

In reply Deans fired wide then saw a shot touched onto the post and out for a corner by the excellent Bejaoui.
