Duns ended the year with a well deserved victory over a young Kelso side on Saturday.

This was the second successive time Duns had gone to Kelso and scored five and the victory puts them back on track to establish themselves in the top of the table after the festive break.

Connor Devaney opened the scoring with a penalty in 16 minutes. Stewart doubled the lead in 26 minutes with a well taken header from a corner kick and in the final minute of the first half Devaney added his second from a goal mouth scramble.

Duns started well in the second half, but Kelso began to look more dangerous and on 61 minutes they got their reward with a well taken free kick from 23 yards.

Duns then made a double substitution following a head injury to Chisholm. Brydon went on and Stevie Shennan replaced Michael Robinson who has not been able to find the net recently, although quite a few chances came his way.

The changes spurned on the Dingers and a Shennan double in 70 and 71 minutes took the score to 5-1,

Duns were moving the ball well with a period of good possession interrupted by a very soft penalty decision converted comfortably to the keeper’s right. A break of two weeks sees the Dingers recharge for the new year with games against Eyemouth, Heriot Watt, Ormiston and Peebles to look forward to in January.

Duns:Tansey, Burns, Walker, McHoul, Windram, Tait, Weatherburn, Chisholm (Brydon), Robinson, (Shennan), Devaney (Lauder), Stewart.
