Report

 

Chirnside took all three points in Saturdays league encounter against bottom of the league Stow. The away team were quick out the blocks and were looking to exploit the space down Stow's left hand side. It paid dividends as they took the lead after five minutes when Shennan followed in his shot which hit the keeper and ricocheted back off the right winger into the net.

 

Stow came more into the game and were putting in some dangerous crosses from the right. They netted the equaliser from one of these when the defence could only partially clear and the left midfielder was there to blast the ball home from 16 yards.

 

Chirnside knew they had to up their game and nearly regained the lead but Ponder hit his shot over the bar. However with 10 minutes of the half remaining the away side took the lead again this time G.Kelly finishing off after good work by Heads on the left.

 

The second half was all Chirnside and they added another four goals to their tally all scored by Shennan who is nearing the 40 goal target for the season. The away team could have scored more but a mixture of good goalkeeping and the woodwork kept them at bay.

 

Chirnside's next league fixture see's them playing away to West Barns on Tuesday night. Keeper Jason Luggett said: "I thought we played well especially in the second half. We should have scored more goals though eh!"
