Penicuik twins Greg and Jason Kerr will face each other in opposing teams for Sunday’s Scottish Cup U-15s semi final.

Up until this season, both boys played for Tynecastle Boys’ Club and had reached two finals on the trot, winning one and losing one.

But in the summer Greg, a striker, was allowed to join rival boys’ club Loanhead while his midfielder brother – who has played for Scotland in his age group – stayed on.

Now the two sides will meet, pitting the 15-year-old siblings against each other and dividing loyalties in the household.
