East Kilbride celebrated a world record 26 successive wins after they beat fellow Scottish Lowland League club BSC Glasgow 3-1 yesterday.

And, to help them celebrate, Ajax drove a branded van onto the field at full-time filled with 27 crates of beer and a video message from Edwin van der Sar - now the marketing director for the Dutch club.

The win surpassed Ajax's run in the 1971-72 season led by Johan Cruyff, but will not be officially recognised by Guinness World Records as East Kilbride, who play in the fifth tier, are not a top-level side.

Regardless, they'll be celebrating like they just won the Champions League.
