Report

 

Chirnside stormed into the final of the Beveridge cup on Saturday knocking seven goals past West Barns en route. The home side started well and took the lead after only five minutes when they were awarded a penalty after G. Kelly was tripped by the keeper. Bolton cooly stepped up and blasted high into the right hand corner of the net.

 

The second wasn't long in coming and it was Heads who fired home after the keeper had saved G.Kelly's initial shot. Luggett then made a couple of fine saves to keep the away strike force at bay. The home team should have added added a few more before the 20 minute mark but Ponder, G. Kelly and Shennan all missed when it looked easier to score.

 

The third goal did eventually arrive and it was Shennan who finished with a crisp left foot shot into the corner of the net. Chirnside added two more before the interval with Shennan scoring both to complete his hat-trick.

 

The second half was a more even affair with both sides hitting the woodwork. Chirnside added number six with 20 minutes to go when substitute McKinnon scored with a shot from 10 yards. The home team added one more before the end with Turner getting on to the end of Stobie's pass to fire a left foot shot past the West Barns keeper.

 

Chirnside's next league encounter is against local rivals Duns at Comrades Park on Tuesday night. Striker Jocky Turner said: "It was a good all round performance and we'll be hoping to carry that into our next game against Duns in mid-week."
