Report

 

In the last game of the season Chirnside were looking to finish off with a win against Waddell Cup Finalists Waverley.

 

Chirnside started the game brightly with Shennan, Morrison, Christie and Bolton having some early chances to give the away side the lead. Chirnside playing some pleasing football on the eye eventually took lead when Shennan was played in by Ponder to make it one nil for the men in green. Chirnside were now well on top and creating half chances at every attack. If it wasn't for poor finishing and greedy play when a pass would of been a better option Chirnside could of scored a couple more. Chirnside were however given the chance to make it two nil from the penalty spot but the usually reliable Bolton smacked the bar to leave the goals shaking. Chirnside went in at half time 1-0 up.

 

The second half saw Waverley come back into the game and were creating some half chances of their own. Chirnside again however could not increase there lead with poor finishing again letting them down. Waverley then equalised with 5 mins to go when a seemingly tame shot managed to sneak under the unlucky Kelly at the front post. Chirnside did not give up and managed to get their second goal when a through ball by Bolton saw substitute Windram challenge the keeper and the ball break kindly for him to tap the ball into the empty net.

 

Defender Steven Christie commented "Poor finishing led to a some nervy defending for the majority of the game, but we are pleased with the way we played in the first half".
