Kelso United 2-2 Eyemouth United


Eyemouth who are once again without a manager after the departure of Mike Galloway last week, fought hard to share the points with Kelso in he East of Scotland League Cup Section A.

Having only played Kelso two weeks ago this was a vastly improved performance.

Eyemouth, who fielded two trialists, were the better side for much of the game and played some very attractive football and it took Kelso to defend for most of the first half to keep the score level.

The second half continued in the same manner as the first half with both sides battling for every ball.

It was substitute Jonathon Waugh who broke the deadlock after 70 minutes when he shot low into the Kelso goal from the edge of the 18 yard box.

Ten minutes later Eyemouth were awarded a penalty when the Kelso keeper got involved with Alan Jess by running after Jess and kicking him in the box. Jess took the penalty and scored Eyemouth’s second goal.

Many would have thought that the game would have been over with 10 minutes to go but not the Kelso players and they scored after some poor defending by Eyemouth.

Kelso scored again in the last minute of the game with a wonder goal.

While the Eyemouth players were naturally disappointed at the result there were a lot of positives to take from this performance.

Jonathon Brown had the responsibility of taking the team on Saturday and will continue to be involved with Gary Smith managing the side.
