Opponents were left seeing double as identical twin sisters became the first girls to play for a Dundee school’s boys’ team.
Scarlett and Klara Brady, 12, from Menzieshill, competed in their first match for Harris Academy against Monifieth High School at Dawson Park.
The girls had successfully competed in trials alongside about 50 boys before being selected for the team.
Both girls, who currently play for Dryburgh Boys 2006, started playing football when they were eight years old.
Now the footballing twins have dreams of following famous Dutch international twins Ronald and Frank de Boer and one day playing for their country.

Proud mum Katherine, 56, said the Dundee FC and Liverpool fans were delighted to get picked for the school team.
She said: “Scarlett was recently a defender, but she’s since moved into centre midfield.
“Klara has always been a striker, they’ve competed against the boys since they were eight years old.
“This is their first year at Harris Academy.
“They were aware there was a girls’ fun team at Harris, but we wanted them to take part in the boys’ trials.
“There were around 50 boys that took part and the girls got selected.
“We were not sure where they were going to be playing on the day.
“Most of the boys they are competing against they have played before in Sunday football.
“I’m pleased that the other players treat them as footballers as opposed to girls.”
Katherine added that Scarlett and Klara train up to five times a week, work with the Scotland East SFA and also train at Stevie Campbell Football Academy at Manhattan Works
She added: “The girls have said they would love to represent their country one day. I would never have imagined when they first started playing they would continue on for this long.”
Harris Academy first year coach Craig Fraser said Scarlett and Klara’s inclusion in the boys’ team was nothing to do with tokenism.
He said: “The girls compete with the boys in the Sunday leagues and are definitely in this squad on their own merit.
“As far as I’m aware it is the first time girls have competed for the boys’ school team.”
