BIGGAR 0

Tweedmouth entertained Biggar at the Five Arches on Saturday in their final match of the season, and it was the home side that was to triumph and make it 20 wins out of 20 for the season.

This was a magnificent achievement for the club and all involved and it culminated in the team being presented with their Border Amateur League C Division trophy.

Tweedmouth started the match in fine fettle having the greater of the possession also creating the better chances.

They grew in confidence as the half wore on and five minutes before the break they took the lead after a speculative effort from Grieg Sharp found its way into the net after the away goalkeeper seemed to fumble his shot,

Sharp wheeled away in delight after scoring his first goal of the season.

Into the second half and after being told during the half time team talk to be just a little bit more patient, more goals would follow.

Sean Dixon added a second on the hour mark, again after another rather sheepish fumble from the Biggar goalkeeper, to give the home side some breathing space with a two goal cushion.

Tweedmouth continued to have the better of the game but were unable to add further goals.

The match was sponsored by the Brewer’s Arms.

Also in the C Division, Duns Reserves had a good 3-0 away win over Hawick Legion Rovers on Saturday.

The Dingers are now looking forward to the Sanderson Cup Final, which will see them take on Peebles Amateurs.

The game is due to be played off at Jedburgh this Friday, with a 6.30pm kick-off.

In the B league, Eyemouth Amateurs went down 4-2 away to Tweeddale Rovers. The fishermen led 2-1, with two goals from Sword. It was 2-2 at half-time, but Tweeddale scored twice after the break.
