Jacobs quartet make history

The country seems to have gone Jacobs crackers this week, but you won't find any cheese or even a sprig of parsley anywhere.

Livingston created history on Wednesday night when Sheldon Jacobs replaced Bobby Barr after 71 minutes of the game against Albion Rovers, joining brothers Keaghan, Kyle and Devon on the park. This was the first time since the 19th century that four brothers have featured together in any senior first team side in a competitive game.

And this has not gone unnoticed, with the media picking up on the story and the Jacobs clan appearing on most back pages across the national press, not to mention making it onto TV in a special BBC report.

Given the uniqueness of the occasion, the quartet were awarded joint man of the match on Wednesday night. Though as our picture above shows, older brother Keaghan was keeping firm hold of the champagne!

And whilst the brothers are all South African born, they still qualify to play for Scotland under the new schooling rule. So maybe we'll see them feature together in the famous navy blue some time in the future too.

Well done lads!
