Eyemouth were looking to build on the previous week’s win but were forced to make changes just minutes before kick-off as midfielder Gavin Burrell was injured in warm up and had to be replaced by Adamson.

It would be no exaggeration to say that throughout the whole game the students rarely threatened the Fishermen’s goal. The home side controlled the game for long spells with neat passing and attacking football creating chances but with no end product.

But as half-time approached Wyman was caught in possession by a University forward who made no mistake in drilling ball past the outstretched Mutch.

Coach Smith tried to rally his flattened men at the break and they took to the field in the same manner dictating game and creating several good goal opportunities but to no avail with the Heriot Watt students holding on for the win .

Eyemouth: Mutch, Wood, McInnes, Wyman, Walker, Lauder, Williamson, Jess, Campbell, Adamson, Thompson.
