Report

 

Chirnside travelled to Newtown on Saturday looking to atone for last weekends dismal defeat against Hawick Waverley.

 

Straight from kick off they looked sharper than their rivals and should've taken the lead after two minutes but Armstrong shot over the bar when put clean through. They away team were also denied a goal minutes later when the Newtown Keeper made a great save from a Turner shot.

 

Stobie was the next to have an effort but his volley whistled just wide. That was to be his last involvement in the game after he succumb to injury with Kev Strachan replacing him. With the half nearing a close the away team eventually broke the deadlock. Young's long through was flicked past his own Keeper by the Newtown Centre Half to make the half time score 0-1.

 

Chirnside started the second half and were looking to control the game as they did in the first half. Strachan went clean through on the hour mark but his size 13's stuck in the mud, half the away touchline shouted for a penalty whilst the after half were in hysterics. Shortly after that Chirnside were caught at the back and the Left Winger's shot went just wide.

 

The men in green looked to have secured the points with 15 minutes to go when Shennan heaed home a Young cross. Number three was added with 10 minutes to go when Turner this time finished a cross off with his head. Chirnside handed veteran Midfielder Gareth Henderson his debut in the dying minutes and he showed a few nice touches to show he's not lost it!
