Report

 

Chirnside entertained Newtongrange Abbey in the first round of the South Cup on Saturday. The home team were looking for a good run in the cup they won in 2005 and after a tentitive start Turner had the ball in the net only for the ref to blow up for an earlier infringement.

 

They did however take the lead on the half hour mark when Stobie played the ball through to Turner who flicked the ball first time into the path of Shennan who fired low into the bottom left hand corner of the net. Although Newtongrange played the ball about well in the midfield Luggett was rarely troubled in the home goal. Chirnside started off the second half the brighter of the two teams and added a second after a swift counter-attack saw Bolton round the keeper and slot the ball home.

 

Windram wrapped up the game for Chirnside after 70 mins when he slid in at the far post to force the ball home. The home team were content with their lead and Dishington and Heads were welcomed into the fray. Chirnside thought they had a fourth but Bolton's finish was harshly judged offside by the referee.

 

Newtongrange did pull back a late consolation 5 mins from time. A free-kick on the left was curled in and Lugget who was partially dazzled by the sun could only parry the ball down to the away striker who stabbed the ball home. Chirnside although not playing as well they have done the past couple of weeks will be pleased with the result and are back to League business next week against local rivals Duns.
