Action from Saturday's Forsyth Cup Final at Earlston.

A goal in each half was enough to give Gordon victory on Saturday. The first came from the penalty spot after Utterson was upended in the box while the second saw Simpson’s shot deflected in off a Tweedmouth defender.

Tweedmouth Amateurs, who have won promotion to next season’s ‘A’ League after finishing runners-up in the ‘B’ League, were no pushovers, and were unlucky not to get a penalty of their own in the second half.
