21st May


Chirnside made hard work of their Waddell Cup tie against 'B' division Ancrum, despite being four goals up at half time, they let in 3 goals in the second half and at the end were very glad to get the win, this really was the proverbial game of two halves. Goals from 4 different players in the first half, including going 1-0 up in around 40 seconds courtesy of captain Young, further goals from Kelly, Windram and Jocky Turner should have put the game beyond Ancrum, but a mix of Chirnside taking their foot off the gas and Ancrum determination made it very uncomfortable. At the end of the day though, it's Chirnside who go through to the quarter final, it's not yet decided who they will play as there are a few ties from earlier rounds to go first.


14th May


Chirnside are running out of players in these last few weeks of the season, and it showed against Waverley - with injuried, and players being unavailable they were really down to the bare bones. Manager Blaikie played up front, and assistant manager Pete Morrison was the only named substitute on the day. Things did brighten up for Chirnside when Waverley went down to 10 men when their keeper was sent off, but this soon turned round as the 10 man team took the lead. Chirnside battled on, and equalised with 10 mins until half time, Armstrong finishing well. Despite a chance to take the lead, it was the home team who took the lead. They followed this up with 2 more goals to effectively end the tie, and although Chirnside did pull one back through Armstrong, it was too little and it's Waverley who go through. Chirnside now have a home cup tie against Ancrum in the Waddell Cup this coming weekend.


7th May


It was another blank week for Chirnside this week due to the way the fixtures have worked out in the league and cups, but in the coming week they have 2 games, on Thursday night they play a fairly meaningless league fixture away to Leithen Rovers - meaningless in that neither team can win or lose anything no matter what the result ! On Saturday they travel to Hawick Waverley in the Beveridge Cup.



30th April


Chirnside travelled to Hawick United for a Waddell Cup game this past weekend, and although their opponents are in the league below and slightly struggling, in the end they gave Chirnside a scare as they pulled back from 4-0 down to 4-3 in the second half, but Chirnside just managed to see the game out and win 5-3. At 4-0 up Chirnside were cruising, and may have taken their foot off the gas a little, but credit to Hawick for making a game of it, and at 4-3 it was definitely in the balance, but a late goal from Jordan Lauder, which gave him his hat trick saw them through 5-3 to put Chirnside in the 3rd round, it is not yet known who their opponents will be. Chirnsides other goals on the day were scored by Armstrong and Windram.



23rd April


Chirnside had no game this past Saturday, they had completed most of their fixtures, and other fixtures left them with no game, so they had a week off. They will return to action this coming Saturday away to Hawick United in the Waddell Cup.



16th April


Chirnside took their frustrations from the midweek defeat to Duns well and truly out on Gala Rovers this past weekend as they thumped them 6-1 at Comrades Park. With relegation worries now only a distant memory, Chirnside played some really good football and certainly went out to attack, with 5 recognised strikers playing in the game, although Lauder was on the wing and G.Kelly in central midfield it still left 3 up front and Gala couldn't cope with them as they all left the field with a brace of goals, Robbie Armstrong, Jocky Turner and his namesake Adam Turner ending up with two each. Chirnside now look to have a blank weekend on the 23rd. They have one league game left to play, but are still in two cups, they will play Hawick Waverley away in the Beveridge Cup and will return to Hawick to play United in the Waddell Cup.



12th April


Chirnside suffered defeat to local rivals Duns on a blustery Tuesday night at Comrades Park, after a first half where most chances were long range, no goals were scored and neither team could really complain. The second half started in much the same way, but Chirnside had a good chance to score with 20 minutes left but Kelly couldn't quite manage to get his shot on target from a very narrow angle. A mix up in the Chirnside defence then allowed Duns to score, and the killer blow came not long after when they grabbed a second. Chirnside tried to come back but created nothing and Duns left for the short journey home with all the points.



9th April


Chirnside and Gordon met for the second time in a few weeks, and following the draw at Gordon both teams were both looking to assert their superiority but in the end it ended like the first meeting - even, although this time the teams shared four goals, not two ! In all honesty, neither team could complain and the point each was probably the fairest result, both teams had their moments when they dominated play, Gordon started off much better, but couldn't score and found themselves one down at the break to a Lauder strike. They equalised just after half time, but had to do it again after Graham Kelly came off the bench to score but managed to do so from the penalty spot. Both teams had half chances late on, but at the whistle it was 2-2.



5th April


In the first midweek game of the season Chirnside kept up their weekend form and recorded a second away win on the bounce as they beat Greenlaw 3-0. After a goalless first half where chances were at a premium the second half saw a lot more action, Chirnside started slowly and only really got spurred into action when a Greenlaw chance hit the woodwork, after this they seemed to be a different team, creating and most importantly, taking their chances. Armstrong opened the scoring with a long range shot, followed by Windram heading in a corner and the points were sealed when Stobie popped up on the edge of the box, played a 1-2 with Jocky Turner and scored at the near post. After two away games, it's now a home tie for Chirnside as they meet Gordon in a home league tie at the weekend.



2nd April


Chirnside were made to work hard for their win this past weekend as relegation threatened Hawick Legion gave them a real test, twice equalising after Chirnside had gone ahead before the men in green pulled away near the end with 2 unanswered goals for a 4 - 2 victory. Chirnside took the lead when big Stevie Christie powered in a header but Legion equalised with a scrambled effort, Armstrong scored for Chirnside to put them 2-1 up at the break but a penalty brought Legion level again. Lauder was introduced as a sub and scored with his second chance soon after coming on, veteran Jocky Turner scored with a clever header to make sure all three points returned to Comrades Park. Next up for Chirnside is a Tuesday night game away to Greenlaw.



26th March


Chirnside suffered a heavy 5-1 home defeat at the hands of Pencaitland this past weekend, the club had a few injury problems so manager Dod Blaikie and assistant manager Peter Morrison, along with veteran Chris Cowe made up the bench. In truth Chirnside never got started, and were 1 down after 10 minutes and despite coming back into the game a little bit, they conceded a second goal on the break. They didn't let their heads go down though and pulled one back before half time courtesy of Jordan Lauder. They started the second half well and saw a potential equaliser chalked off for offside and this seemed to affect them and they conceded three second half goals without looking like scoring themselves. The players and management know they have to improve, starting with next weekend against Hawick Legion, who are 2nd bottom.



19th March


Chirnside battled to a 1-1 draw away at Gordon this past weekend, they equalised in the second half from a Lauder penalty having gone 1-0 down in the first half to a scrambled goal following a corner. Chirnside didn't let their heads drop at all following the goal and after Chris Young was brought down in the box, they equalised. Both teams had half chances to win the game, but couldn't find the net with most chances being long range efforts. A point each was probably a fair result. Chirnside now have a home league game against Pencaitland.



12th March

MID MARCH, AND NO GAME DUE TO............... SNOW !!

Chirnside suffered another call off as the recent cold snap and snow caused the postponement of their game away to Hawick Legion this past weekend. Hopefully going ahead this weekend will be Chirnside travelling to Gordon for a league game, Chirnside are 6th on 20 points and Gordon 8th on 17 points, so there is a lot at stake.



5th March


Chirnside travelled to Newtown this past Saturday and following an all round good team performance, came away with a 4-1 victory on a very heavy pitch. The six points in the last two games have really eased any fears of relegation and the team must now look to push on, get some more wins and climb the league table. Four different goal scorers on the day shows what a good team performance it was as Young, Windram, Kelly and Lauder all score. Next up for Chirnside is a trip to Hawick Legion, who sit 2nd bottom of the table.



26th February


Chirnside got back to winning ways this past weekend with a hard-earned 1-0 victory over Jed Legion, both teams went into the game on 14 league points, but it was the men in green who ended up on 17 after the game thanks to a goal from Graham Kelly late in the first half, volleying in cross from Chris Young, which had been headed back across goal by Jocky Turner. Despite Jed having a couple of chances, Chirnside were organised and held firm for the win. They travel to Newtown next week, hoping to make it two wins in two against teams in the bottom half.



19th February

IT'S NOW 3 DEFEATS IN 3.........

Another defeat for Chirnside, as they lose 2 - 0 at home to West Barns Star despite having the best chances of the match, they fail to score and concede two to leave them in a little bit of trouble near the bottom of the league. The woodwork twice denied Chirnside in the game as Windram and Lauder both hit the post but saw the rebounds either go out for a goal kick or bounce to safety. Next up is a home league meeting against Jed Legion, both teams are on 14 points in the league sitting nearer the bottom than the top, so a win is a must this coming weekend.



12th February


Chirnside managed to play 2 games in 2 weeks for the first time since November, but after last weeks extra time defeat at the hands of Pencaitland, things didn't get any better this week as they lost 2 - 0 away to local rivals, and table toppers, Duns Amateurs. Two down at half time, a couple of wasted chances in the 2nd half made sure that they made the short journey home empty handed. Manager Dod Blaikie now must pick the team up for a home game with West Barns Star in the league - a game against a team 2nd in the league.



5th February


Chirnside managed to get back on a pitch again on Saturday past, although they managed it, lady luck didn't follow them as they were 2 - 1 up against Pencaitland at the end of 90 minutes, but the away team equalised in somewhat fortuitous circumstances 5 minutes into injury time, and went on to win the tie 4 - 2, scoring once in each period of extra time. Chirnside will have to get their heads up quickly, as a trip to league leaders, and local rivals, Duns is next up for them.


29th January & 22nd January


After playing on the 15th January, Chirnside have now had 2 consecutive games called off, here is hoping that 5th February proves third time lucky as they are due to entertain Pencaitland in the Border Cup at Comrades Park.


15th January


Chirnside finally managed to get on the pitch and play, but it wasn't the happiest of returns to the game as they went down 1 - 0 to local rivals Duns in a South Cup tie at Comrades Park. A windy, cold day with both teams shaking off the rustiness made for quite a boring uneventful, almost chanceless game. The one chance that did come along, Duns took following a defensive mix up, ending Chirnside's South Cup campaign. Next up for Chirnside if the weather holds is a Border Cup tie at home to Pencaitland.



4th December


With no real surprises, the Chirnside game away to the 'Dingers' was called off due to excessive snow.


27th November


Chirnside had their game against Pencaitland postponed this past weekend, in fact, no football at all was played in the Border Amateur leagues due to the excessive snowfall. The games for the coming weekend are also looking in doubt unless the snow relents.


20th November


Chirnside met Linton Hotspur in the South Cup 2nd round this past weekend, the first ever time the teams have met and it was the men in green who now hold a 100% record in head to head meetings with a 5-2 win that sees them through to the next round where they will meet local rivals Duns. A hat trick for Jocky Turner on his first start of the season and goals from Graham Kelly and Jack Windram, his first since re-joining Chirnside saw the team through, despite letting a 3 goal lead slip to a one goal lead midway through the second half. Next weekend Chirnside's recent revival will be tested to the full as they meet Pencaitland in the semi final of the Border Cup.



13th November


Chirnside bounced back from last weeks disappointing result with a solid away win at Hawick Waverley, despite going a goal down early on they didn't let their heads drop, it was 1-1 at half time thanks to a Robbie Armstrong goal, and it was Armstrong who put them in front mid way through the second half with a powerful shot. Chirnside sealed the win late on with a goal from new signing Jordan Lauder on his re-debut for the club and despite some late pressure from Waverley, a mixture of poor finishing and some luck saw them hold on for a deserved win. Next up for Chirnside is a home tie against Linton Hotspur in the South Cup.



10th November


Chirnside have this week completed the signing of 2 former players, as JORDAN LAUDER & JACK WINDRAM return to the club. Lauder has been signed following a stint away at Gala Fairydean and Coldstream Amateurs and Windram returns after a season away playing for Stirling City and travelling the world. A big welcome back to both players.



6th November


Chirnside lost 3-2 to Jed Legion away this past weekend, losing to a last minute penalty, despite having a few chances to have the game sewn up. They were disappointed to not get at least a point, but if you don't take your chances then you are going to get punished, and they did on this occasion. Goals from club captain Chris Young and full back Martin Donaldson couldn't save Chirnside from defeat and they will look to bounce back from this defeat, but face a tough away trip to Hawick Waverley next weekend.



30th October


Chirnside fought hard for a 2-1 home win against bottom team Hawick Legion, both goals for the home side were scored by Armstrong, the first of which was set up by the returning Graham 'Garushi' Kelly. Chirnside showed some real fight and spirit to bounce back from the previous weeks defeat against West Barns. Next up for Chirnside is an away league game at Jed Legion, followed by two home ties in cup competitions.



23rd October


Chirnside came back to earth with a bump as they were beaten 5-1 at West Barns Star, at only 2-1 at half time they were in the game, and probably deserved to be level at the break, but the 2nd half was all West Barns and they scored three times to record a big win which sent them top of the table. Chirnside now have to find form as they entertain Hawick Legion at home next week.



16th October


Chirnside entertained Greenlaw for the second week running at Comrades Park, but the visitors fared worse than they did the previous week in the Border Cup, going down 4-1 in a league meeting, a win which gave Chirnside their second league win of the season and moved them up into mid table. Sporting a new look formation, the men in green went ahead in the first half through Kevin Strachan, but had to wait a long time for their second goal, sub Adam Turner scoring with his first touch after coming on. His namesake, Jocky Turner inevitably got on the score sheet with a third, and Romainis rounded off the scoring for the home team late on. Not even a consolation penalty in the last minute for Greenlaw could stop Chirnside. Next up for Chirnside is a league tie away to West Barns Star.



9th October


Chirnside made it through to the Semi Finals of the Border Cup with a hard fought win against Greenlaw at Comrades Park, a mixture of some stout defensive work and taking the few chances that were on offer during the game was the difference. Goals from club captain Chris Young and the returning Jocky Turner saw Chirnside through where they will meet one of Leithen Rovers, Pencaitland or West Barns Star.



2nd October


Chirnside entertained the reigning league champions to Comrades Park, the visitors were unbeaten, the home team hadn't won in the league, but the form book was well and truly ripped up as the men in green stormed into a 5-0 lead with 40 minutes gone in the game. Leithen did come back at them, but the final score of 5-3 will give Chirnside a lot of confidence for the rest of the season, the young team CAN mix it with the best of them - and come out on top. Special mention to Dan Romanes who bagged a hat trick on the day, the other goals were scored by Leigh Wood and Robbie Armstrong. Chirnside now go on and play Greenlaw twice in two weeks, first off in the Border Cup 2nd round, and then in the league - both games are at Comrades Park.



25th September


No action for Chirnside this week as their game against Gordon was called off.



18th September



Chirnside recorded their first win of the season against Gordon in the 1st round of the Border Cup last weekend, no goals at half time, but an eventful second half saw 4 goals scored, Gordon go down to 10 men and Jocky Turner come out of semi retirement (to score !). Two goals from Keir Blaikie give either side of a lucky goal for Gordon put them ahead, and Jocky comes off the bench to score at the end to seal the win. Both sides had chances with the game at 1-1 but it was Chirnside who took them and recorded the win. A first win at the first attempt for Dod Blaikie as manager.



11th September



Chirnside are pleased to announce that they have appointed a new first team manager, ex-player DODDIE BLAIKIE has now taken over the reigns from Pete Morrison, but Pete will be staying at the club as assistant to Doddie. Everyone connected with the club would like to wish Doddie the best of luck in the position.


Doddie Blaikie - new first team manager.



11th September



Chirnside went down 4-1 at home to Newtown, which was the first time they had been beaten by them ! A couple of early chances not taken and some good play being let down by a final ball meant that they couldn't impose their will on the game, and against the run of play they were one down and it stayed that way until half time. Newtown then had the best of the play at the start of the second half, but against the run of play Chirnside got a penalty and club captain Chris Young took on the responsibility and scored from the spot. Rather than inspire the home team on to victory, it was the away team who seemed more fired up and they went on to score three goals to run out easy winners in the end.



4th September



Chirnside suffered a 5-1 reverse away to Pencaitland, but still found some positives to take from the game as their young side showed some heart in a tough game, and only tiredness and a couple of injuries really spoiled the day for them. Going into the break at 1-1 they had given as good as they got, but in the second half four unanswered goals from Pencaitland saw them run out comfortable winners, but Chirnside still continued to play football but couldn't score the all important goals their possession and build up deserved. Next up is a home tie against Newtown in the league.



28th August



The result was probably about right at the end of the game, both teams scored twice, and both had chances to win it that they couldn't take. A penalty save from Stuart 'Kaka' Black kept Waverley out and some good keeping from their number 1 kept Chirnside out, as well as some poor finishing from the men in green. Next up for Chirnside is a game away to Pencaitland in the league.



21st August



Chirnside came back from the tough away trip to Gala Rovers with a point, courtesy of an Adam Turner strike in the second half after they had gone one down earlier in the half. A good point, considering how much the team have struggled there in the past. A tough examination for the new young team, and one they came through well. Next up is a home game against Hawick Waverley.



18th August



Chirnside Football Club committee has expanded in numbers and has a new chairman. James Bolton is the man at the top now, a full committee list will appear on the site over the coming weeks. All at the club wish James the best in his new position.


18th August



Chirnside Colts have appointed a new manager, he is first team player PAUL JOHNSON who takes over from Pete Morrison. All at the club wish Paul the very best as manager.



11th August



Chirnside have appointed CHRIS YOUNG as their new club captain for the 2010/11 season, congratulations Chris.



5th August



Chirnside are inviting applications for a new first team manager. Please apply in writing to :

Ian Black (secretary)
1 Croft Court,
TD11 3YQ

Closing date for applications is Monday 16th August.


The club will hold an extraordinary AGM on Tuesday, August 17th at the Robins Nest Hotel at 9pm.




21st May

A depleted and weary Chirnside squad went down to a heavy 4-0 defeat at the hands of Gala Rovers in the Beveridge Cup final, the missing McCutcheon, Turner and Shennan through suspension really hit the team hard, and given their recent efforts of playing 3 games a week, it finally caught up on them. Only 1-0 down at half time, there was some hope but Gala ran away with things in the second half scoring three goals to leave Chirnside runners up for the third time this season (league & South Cup being the other two).


That's the end of the season now for Chirnside, thanks to everyone who has visited the site this season !



19th May

Chirnside beat Duns in a hotly contested game at Gavinton to progress to the Beveridge Cup Final where they will meet Gala Rovers. The two teams served up a 'game of two halves' but in the end it was the men in green who progressed into the final with a narrow 2-1 victory. Goals from Shennan and Ponder seeing them through, although a lot of credit has to go to the defence and keeper who saw them through a real battering in the last 15 minutes of the game.



15th May

Chirnside travelled to West Barns for their third game in 5 days as they took on West Barns in a Beveridge Cup quarter final with the incentive being if they won they would meet local rivals Duns in the Semi Final. This turned out to be the easiest of the three games in five days as despite the 3-0 scoreline Chirnside wasted at least 10 good chances to score during the game. Goals from Turner, Strachan and Shennan on the day, despite the wasted chances Chirnside weren't punished for them and they indeed go forward now to meet Duns in the semi final on Wednesday 19th.



13th May

Chirnside spoil the title celebration party of Leithen Rovers as they beat the champions 4-2 in their own back yard. A hat trick from Shennan and a single strike from Brian Stuart are the scorers for Chirnside. A very good team performance on the day with notable impressive performances from Stuart in midfield, Henderson on the right wing and Chris Young on the left wing. Shennan even missed a penalty on the day, but in fairness he tucked in the rebound for his hat trick ! Next up for Chirnside is a Beveridge Cup semi final tie on Saturday against West Barns Star.



11th May

Chirnside go goal crazy against already relegated Hawick United, scoring eight times past their shell shocked opponents. Not only did they score eight times, but they recorded 7 different goal scorers with Turner grabbing two on the day, the other scorers were Shennan, Morrison, Armstrong, Christie, Stuart and a first goal for the club from Jamie Wright. Next up for Chirnside is a trip to league winners Leithen Rovers on Thursday.



8th May

Chirnside score two goals for the fourth consecutive game, but this time they don't concede any and come away with three well deserved points from Stow, who are relegated as a result of the game. Chirnside should have scored a lot more than 2, several good chances being wasted and two goals were chalked off on the day too. Next up is a home game to Hawick United, then away to Leithen Rovers and finally away in the Beveridge Cup to West Barns Star - three games in five days, Chirnside will show the pros how to cope with fixture congestion !!



4th May

Chirnside continue their up and down form of late with a 4-2 defeat at Greenlaw in a league game, goals from Ponder and Turner give the score line some respectability given they were 4-0 down, Greenlaw also miss a penalty in the last minute too.



1st May

Chirnside go through to the next round of the Beveridge Cup after defeating Hawick Legion 2-1, two goals from Brian Stuart send them through in a bad tempered game when Chirnside played for over an hour with nine men following dismissals for Turner and McCutcheon. The game goes to extra time but it's Chirnside who come out on top, despite several debatable calls by the ref during the game.



27th April

Chirnside bounce back from defeat in the South Cup final to record a 2-0 win at home to Hawick Waverley, still not a great performance, but the result is the right one. An own goal and a Jocky Turner header see them gain three points in their battle to stay in second place in the league. A goal ruled out for offside from Kevin Strachan denies him his first for the club and a 5 minute cameo from David Heads at the end were the other talking points.



24th April

Chirnside lose out in a close game against Newtongrange Star 'A' as they go down 2-1, in what was generally a poor game that both teams went out very cautious with a "don't lose" philosophy. A goalless first half with defences on top was followed by much of the same until around 70 minutes when Star scored, ten minutes later they got a second and despite Chirnside throwing everything at them, they could only get one back and were unable to force extra time.



17th April

Chirnside's up and down 2010 continued at the weekend when they followed up a good win the previous weekend with a not-so-great performance at home to Gala in the Waddell Cup. The windy conditions didn't help good football on the day, but despite Chirnside working hard to equalise late in the 2nd half, two late goals conceded meant that they went out of the cup. They will have to bounce back from this very quickly as it's the South Cup final at Innerleithen this weekend against Newtongrange Star 'A'.



14th April

Chirnside saw their midweek game abandoned following a serious injury to a Greenlaw player, a suspected dislocated knee. All at Chirnside wish the player a full and speedy recovery.



10th April

Chirnside restored some pride following the poor performance a week earlier with a solid win against Newtown, an own goal puts them 1 up and despite wasting a few chances, 2 late goals give them a 3-0 winning margin. Next up is a game on Wednesday evening away to Greenlaw.



3rd April

April Fools came 2 days late with this Chirnside performance, a terrible away performance saw them lose 1-0 to Hawick Waverley and any slim chance they had of winning the league is now certainly gone, the Waverley team who are battling relegation to the Border Amateur B Division were the happier of the two sides at the final whistle. Chirnside not at the races and they will have to improve in their next game away to Newtown in the league.



27th March

A battling performance from Chirnside as they edge out Carluke Hearts 2-1 to make it into another South Cup Final. Goals from Stuart and Morrison see the team through. Next up is an away game at Hawick Waverley



20th March

A terrible game of football put on show by Chirnside and West Barns this past weekend, a game where the chances for both teams could be counted on 1 hand it was so bad. Neither team deserved to win, so a 1-1 draw was probably fair in the circumstances. Jocky Turner got the goal for Chirnside, following a good move, sadly it was probably the only good move of the game. Chirnside will have to improve a lot on this performance when they meet Carluke Hearts in the semi-final of the South Cup.



13th March

A home game against Pencaitland saw another good game, as is usually the case when the teams play each other. A hard fought first half ended 1-1, which was probably a fair result but Chirnside just edged the second half, scoring 2 goals to give them a well earned 3-1 home win. Goals from Chris Young (in the best scoring form of his Chirnside career now), Steven Shennan and a solo effort from Andrew Ponder for the home team. Next up is another home game in the league, against West Barns Star. Chirnside have now played 14 league games and have 10 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses which gives them 32 points, still 5 behind leaders Leithen Rovers, but 10 ahead of third placed Newtown.



6th March

Another away trip for Chirnside ends up with the team coming home with a win, this time ensuring 3 more league points rather than cup progression. Two goals from Shennan and one goal from Morrison, which apparently was not so much poached as blatantly stolen ! Chirnside now have two home games coming up against Pencaitland and West Barns Star.



27th February

The long trip to Dumfries proved fruitful for Chirnside as they returned with a 5-2 win that secures them a semi-final place against Carluke Hearts. The game saw the return to real goalscoring form of Steven Shennan as he bagged 4 of the 5 goals Chirnside scored, a fantastic effort. Chris Young got the other goal with that "sweet left foot" of his. An all round decent team performance from Chirnside, next up is a trip to Hawick Legion in the league.



20th February

Well, after two games in two weeks for Chirnside it was inevitable that they would have a blank weekend, and that proved to be the case ! It's South Cup action up next for the men in green as they travel to meet Lochar Thistle.



13th February

Two games in two weeks for Chirnside following recent postponements, something of a novelty !!


The players didn't let the lack of recent football affect them though as they ran out 6 - 0 winners against Newtown at Comrades Park. The star of the show was Robbie Armstrong who showed the club that they needn't worry about losing Jordan Lauder as he bagged himself a hat trick, other goals from regular scorers Turner and Shennan and a rare goal from left winger Chris Young complete the scoring. Pleasing for the Chirnside management must be that the team kept a clean sheet for the first time since 7th December.



6th February 2010

The South Cup tie went ahead !!!!!!!!!!!!! It was lucky for Chirnside too, as they went through to the quarter finals with a 7 - 3 victory. Goals for Turner (3), Shennan (2) and Lauder (2). The game saw Hawick end up with only 9 players following 2 dismissals, 1 for a clash with Turner and 1 for dissent. Following the win Chirnside now go on to meet either Gordon or Lochar Thistle. Next up is a league game though, this time at home to 3rd place Newtown.



30th January 2010

The South Cup tie away to Hawick United was re-scheduled again this week, so, of course, it was postponed to bad weather. It will be attempted again next week, 38th time lucky I guess !



23rd January 2010

Chirnside were back in action this past weekend, their first match since the 5th December, and their first of 2010, and what better way to start than by getting a good win over your nearest rivals. A 5-2 win over the Dingers with regular scorers Turner, Shennan and Lauder scoring, with 3 fine assists from Chris Young. This coming weekend Chirnside are scheduled to play Hawick United in the South Cup, the 37th time this match has been arranged............. fingers crossed it goes ahead this time !



16th January 2010

Yep, you guessed it - another fixture called off, so another blank week for Chirnside. Hopefully this weekends South Cup tie at Hawick United will go ahead..........



9th January 2010

Another blank week for Chirnside due to the inclement weather.



2nd January 2010

No fixtures this week in the Border Amateur League.



1st January 2010

Happy New Year to all visitors to this site from Chirnside Football Club.



26th December 2009

No fixtures this week in the Border Amateur League.



19th December 2009

Chirnside had another blank week with the weather putting paid to another fixture.



12th December 2009

Chirnside's game at the weekend was called off due to the bad weather, but one really important contest did take part - the club held its annual Christmas party where the Chirnsiders faced off against the Interlopers in a Ryder cup style pool and darts tournament. The Interlopers, led by the fisherman Paul Johnson defeated the locals, lead by the enigma Jocky Turner in a 13-7 rout.


The highlight of the evening was a devestated Jocky Turner presenting the Challenge Tankard to the victorious Interloper Captain Paul Johnson.



5th December 2009

After all the goals in recent weeks, it was inevitable at some point that the goals would dry up, and this was the case against Greenlaw, although it wasn't for lack of trying, or lack of chances created, it was just one of those days where the strikers didn't have their shooting boots on, and when they did the Greenlaw keeper made a good save. Lauder did manage to score the goal in a 1 - 1 draw, but the draw will go down as a poor result for Chirnside who have fallen further behind Leithen Rovers in the league. Next up is an away trip to Stow for Chirnside, but Comrades Park will be hosting a game at the weekend, the Border Cup Final between Pencaitland and Hawick Legion.



28th November 2009

Chirnside are certainly the team to watch on a Saturday if you want goals, another 9 scored in their game this past weekend, luckily they come out winners 5 - 4 in an entertaining match, a great comeback considering they were 4 - 2 down early in the second half. With that result, their November record reads 4 wins from 4, with 23 goals scored and 11 conceded - you won't find entertainment like that in the SPL or Premiership ! Goals from regular scorers Turner (pen), Lauder & Shennan along side goals from Stuart and a rare one from Stobie ensure the points come back to Comrades Park.



21st November 2009

Another game involving Chirnside that consists of lots of goals, the six scored in this game make it eighteen goals scored in the last three games ! However, the three conceded make it 7 in the last two games, although as both games have been won, I don't think the team will mind too much. Goals from Turner (a hat trick) and one each from Lauder, Stuart and Shennan complete the scoring. This puts them into the third round of the South Cup where they face an away trip to Hawick United. Next up it's back to league action for Chirnside as they play Gala Rovers away.



14th November 2009

Goals galore at West Barns, as the home side score 4, but still lose the game by 3 goals as Chirnside put 7 away. Shennan doing the damage with 5 goals, yet still only getting a 7 out of 10 rating !! The other goals coming from the strike duo of Turner and Lauder. Not a game for the defensive purists out there, and if Alan Hansen was watching, he would probably need brought round as neither side could stop conceding early in the 2nd half ! A win is a win for Chirnside, and they have a tough tie next week at home to Pencaitland in the South Cup.



7th November 2009

After the disappointing loss in the Border Cup, Chirnside got back to winning ways at the first attempt with a fairly comfortable win against Stow at home. The 5-0 scoreline was probably deserved at the end of the game, and Chirnside even managed to miss a few half chances here and there too. The goals were spread around too, with Lauder grabbing a brace (1 pen), Young getting a rare goal, Armstrong getting his third of the season and Shennan chipping in too. Next up for Chirnside is an away league game at West Barns Star.



31st October 2009

Chirnside let a 2 goal lead slip away against Hawick Legion in the Border Cup, goals from Turner and Lauder put them 2 - 0 up in the second half, but Legion battle back to win 3 - 2. Some dubious offside decisions help them on the way, and to add insult to injury Morrison is red carded for Chirnside for handball. A game the team will want to put behind them quickly and focus on the visit of Stow this coming weekend in the league.



24th October 2009

A good win for Chirnside against a solid Muirkirk side who failed to take advantage of the windy conditions in their favour in the first half, although keeper Black makes a couple of good saves to keep Chirnside in it. The team score 4 goals in the 2nd half, and can even afford Turner to miss a penalty - although he does make up for it with a good free kick. Shennan gets his first goals of the season in London bus fashion, you wait for ages then three turn up at once !



17th October 2009

A game that Chirnside feel they should have won, several spurned chances in the first half (which could have ended up 4-0 if they had been taken) are to blame for a 4-2 defeat, opponents Leithen Rovers are much more clinical in front of goal and end up victors 4 - 2. Chirnside are now relying on other teams beating Leithen to have any chance of the league.



10th October 2009

A poor performance from Chirnside as they lose 2 - 0 away to Pencaitland in the league, that's twice this season they have failed to score in a game, and given that they scored in every game last season, you actually have to go back to 29th March 2008 to find the last time they didn't score (away to Langholm in the league). Things will have to improve for this weekends visit of Leithen Rovers who have won 6 out of 6 in the league so far.



3rd October 2009

A good away win for Chirnside, beating newly promoted Hawick United 5 - 2, a scoreline which could have been better given that they were 5 - 0 up at one point. Two goals for the in form Lauder, one from Turner, one from Armstrong who had only been on the pitch a few minutes as sub and an own goal for the men in green. Next up is a tough away trip in the league to Pencaitland.



26th September 2009

Chirnside finally find their shooting boots ! Despite in recent weeks creating numerous chances, the team have not been finding the net often enough. That was finally solved this week when they ran out 6 - 0 winners over Hawick Legion at Comrades Park. Striking duo Turner and Lauder each grab a hat trick as the team run out comfortable winners against the early pace setters in the division.



19th September 2009

A tough Border Cup first round tie goes the way of Chirnside as they edge out the team they beat in the final last season, Stow. Goals from Lauder and Armstrong see the green and whites through, although the amount of chances missed in the game could be a concern to the management !



12th September 2009

No action for Chirnside this weekend as their game away to Greenlaw was cancelled due to a referee shortage !



5th September 2009

Chirnside record their first goalless draw in a long time ! No team can trouble the scorers on a wet and cold September day at Comrades Park, both sides have chances and both rattle the crossbar, but the game ends goalless, a result that left the away team happier than the home team.



29th August 2009

The new league season is underway, and Chirnside take all 3 points from a local derby against Duns, despite missing a few first team regulars. Goals from Christie, Stuart & Windram secure a 3-2 win, after going a goal down.



23rd May

No fourth trophy of the season for Chirnside as they go down 3 - 2 to Leithen Rovers in the Beveridge cup final, despite leading the game twice, they lose out to two late goals. Chirnside's scorers were Turner and Windram.

That game was the last of the season for Chirnside, and a very successful season it was, a league title, the Border Cup and the South Cup all in the trophy cabinet. Quarter final of the Waddell Cup and finalists in the Beveridge Cup - a great season indeed !



19th May

Chirnside probably put on their worst performance of the season as they go out of the Waddell Cup following a shock 4-2 home defeat to B league team Gordon. Shennan and Ponder score for the home side, but it's Gordon who progress to the semi finals.

The night is rescued however, when it is confirmed that Leithen Rovers could only win 6 - 2 in their final league game, so Chirnside are :




A great effort, and truly deserved for an exceptional season.



16th May

Chirnside travelled their longest league trip of the season, in their final league game - all the way to Langholm. It was to prove a good trip though as the team won 4 - 2 meaning second placed Leithen Rovers had to win their last game by seven goals to take the league title. Two goals each from Turner and Lauder ensure the win.



12th May

Another cup game, another away game, another win ! Chirnside make the quarter finals of the Waddell Cup with a 4-1 win at Lauder. They now go on to meet Gordon for a place in the semi final where the winner will play West Barns. Goals from Windram, Shennan, Ponder and big Stevie Christie see them through. Next game sees Chirnside make the long trip to Langholm for their final league fixture of the season.



9th May

Chirnside are into yet another final in this great season, a 6-1 win away at Hawick Waverley in the Beveridge Cup puts them into the final where they will play Leithen Rovers. Goals from Turner, Windram, Lauder (2), Ponder & a very first goal for Chris Young see the team through.



5th May

A good away win in the league at Stow sees Chirnside take another step towards the league title, they now have 51 points from 21 games with an away game at Langholm still to play. Second placed Leithen Rovers have played 19 games and have 45 points, so if they win all their games it will come down to goal difference ! Chirnside have a slightly better one at the moment, but it could be close !


Away to Stow, goals from Windram (2), Turner and Stuart see Chirnside through to a 4-2 victory. Next game is the Beveridge Cup semi final on Saturday (9th) away to Hawick Waverley.



2nd May

Chirnside progress in the Waddell Cup with a "much harder than it should have been" victory against Pencaitland. They were 4-1 up at one point in the second half, and eventually went through 4-3. This sets up a tie against Lauder (away - again !) in the next round, this game is scheduled for Tuesday 12th. A hat trick for Jocky Turner in this game with the other goal from Windram.



28th April

Chirnside let a 2 goal lead slip and can only draw at home with Hawick Legion. The home side put themselves in a great position, going 3 - 1 up before half time. Several chances were wasted in the second half and then Chirnside were hit with 2 sucker punches as the Hawick team score twice to grab a draw. Chirnside now face a real battle for the league title with 2 away games left, 1 at Stow next Tuesday (5th May) and one away at Langholm still to be arranged.



25th April

More cup action for Chirnside, this time the third attempt to play their Waddell Cup preliminary round tie away to Leithen Rovers went ahead. As expected it was a very tough game and Chirnside went through 2 - 1 thanks to goals from Shennan and a penalty from Turner after Windram was brought down. This puts Chirnside into the next round where they will travel to Pencaitland for what should be another tough close fought match, although Chirnside will meet Hawick Legion at home in the league before this match.



21st April

Back to league business for Chirnside, and their first home game in a few months as they easily brush aside bottom team and already relegated Coldstream Amateurs 5-1. Goals from Windram, Shennan (2), Turner and Morrison ease Chirnside to the win. Next up is an away tie at Pencaitland in the preliminary round (honest !) of the Waddell Cup, followed by a home game against Hawick Legion on the Tuesday, no doubt the Legion will be out for revenge following the South Cup defeat.



18th April - SOUTH CUP WINNERS !!

Chirnside have won the South Cup following a 3-1 victory over Hawick Legion at Innerleithen. Goals from Stuart, Morrison and an own goal give the team a hard fought victory and their second South Cup win in 5 years. Next up is a home game (yes, HOME - first in 3 months) against already relegated Coldstream.



11th April

Chirnside enjoy hard-fought victory away to Hawick Waverley, keeper Jason Luggett being the hero with a late penalty save to preserve the 2-1 victory. Goals from Brian Stuart and a 30 yarder from Shennan for the Chirnside team. Next up is the small matter of the South Cup Final against Hawick Legion which will be played at Innerleithen.



4th April

A battling draw away to Leithen Rovers in the league, a back and forth game ends 3-3, two goals from Jocky Turner (including another trademark free kick) and a strike from Jack Windram for Chirnside. Next up for the paper makers is another away trip (9th in a row now !) to play Hawick Waverley in the league.



28th March

The Waddell cup match for this weekend was called off by Leithen Rovers, no re-scheduled date as yet.



21st March




The first bit of silverware is in the bag for this season as Chirnside win a tough game against Stow at Netherdale. Late goals in each half from Jocky Turner bring the cup home for the men in green. Next up for Chirnside are two games against Leithen Rovers, one in the cup, one in the league.



14th March

Chirnside weren't away this week, but they weren't at home either, it was the South Cup semi final, so it was a neutral ground, so more travelling for the team - this time to Innerleithen. The game itself was played in blustery conditions and despite going a goal down in the first minute Chirnside booked their place in the final with a good 5 - 2 win, they will now meet Muirkirk or Hawick Legion. Next up for Chirnside is the Border Cup final against Stow, and then two weeks in a row away to Leithen Rovers, one in the Waddell Cup, one in the League.



7th March

Chirnside were at home this week, actually I'm only kidding they were away again, but this time it was the shortest away trip they could make with the opposition being Duns. The Beveridge Cup tie ended up 4-1 to the away side with Jocky Turner netting a hat trick, not just a normal hat trick, but a "perfect" hat trick, one goal with his right foot (honestly), one with his left and one with his head. Shennan got the other goal for the men in green and white. Next up is another away trip, Chirnside's 312th in a row this season, away at Syminton Tinto in the South Cup Semi Final.



28th February

Chirnside visit Newtown for the third time this season so far in the Border Cup Semi Final and secure their place in the final (against Stow) with a hard fought 2-1 victory, despite going a goal down after a minute. Keeper Luggett saves a late penalty from Newtown to send the team through. Next up is a trip to Duns in the Beveridge Cup followed by another trip to Symington Tinto in the South Cup. The last home game at Comrades Park was a 4-0 win over Stow back on the 17th January - at least the pitch should be good next time out.......



21st February

Chirnside see action for the first time in February with a trip to Dumfries to take on Lochar Thistle, it looks like the break let some players re-charge their batteries as they win 5 - 3 and are through to the semi finals of the South Cup where they will meet Symington Tinto, who have beaten 3 Border Amateur sides to get this far, Earlston Rhymers, Pencaitland & Coldstream Amateurs. They won their semi final 4-1 on pens after a 2 - 2 draw with the fantastically named Carluke BAPS.



14th February

Another blank weekend for as their clash with Hawick Waverley fell victim to the lovely British weather.



7th February

No game for Chirnside this past weekend as the Waddell Cup game away to Leithen Rovers was called off. They are back in action this coming weekend (14th) away to Hawick Waverley in the league.



31st January

Chirnside earn a battling draw away at Pencaitland with Lauder scoring another goal for the club. Chirnside actually take the lead, but the home team equalise in the second half to take a share of the spoils. A tough game on a very wet pitch in blustery conditions so a draw is not a bad result.



24th January

Chirnside battle through to the next round of the South Cup with a really hard fought win over Newtown. The away team going through 3-2 after extra time. The teams were 1-1 at the end of normal time, but Shennan got the winner in the second half of extra time to send the men in green through. The other goals came from Morrison and Lauder.



17th January

Chirnside make it 10 wins in a row and now go a huge EIGHTEEN points clear at the top of the league. A 4 - 0 home victory over Stow, another goal from Lauder, Shennan bagging a brace and a strike from reporting god Stobie for the home side.



10th January

Chirnside go goal mad as they thump 8 past bottom team Langholm Legion, Jordan Lauder adding to his already impressive goal tally with FOUR ! Other scorers were Jack Windram, Steven Shennan and Andrew Ponder. This puts Chirnside a huge FIFTEEN points clear at the top of the league !



3rd January

The long trip to Hawick at the weekend was averted as the game was postponed. No re-staging date as yet.



27th December

A hard fought, literally, win against the 'enthusiastic' Newtown team for Chirnside as they show that they have the heart for a battle and come out on top by 2 goals to 1. Goals for Jocky Turner and Jordan Lauder on his first start for the club give the home team the win. This extends their lead at the top of the league to a massive 12 points now.



20th December

Chirnside take local derby with Duns by 5 goals to 2, a comfortable win with goals from Stuart, Turner (2), Ponder and super sub Lauder who yet again nets after coming on. The only downside was the injury to skipper Morrison who was taken off after 10 minutes with a rib injury.



13th December

Chirnside continue their good run of form with a 6 - 1 away win at basement side Coldstream Amateurs, goals for ex Streamers Stuart (2) and Lauder as well as strikes from regular scoreboard botherers Turner and Shennan, all this coming after Morrison opened the scoring, equalising an early home lead.



6th December

Pencaitland are sent packing by Chirnside by 4 goals to 1, a result that sees Chirnside go top of the league after 10 games played and 8 wins, netting them 24 points. 30 goals scored and only 10 conceded gives them a healthy goal difference too.



29th November

Chirnside grab good away win at West Barns in the only fixture in Division A to beat the frost. Goals for Windram, Lauder and Turner set them on the way before the hosts grab a late consolation.



22nd November

A close fought derby match away at Duns sees young Jack Windram become the hero, coming off the bench to score the winner late on. 1-0 to Chirnside to continue their march up the table.
