Tweedmouth Ams 6

Eyemouth 3

Tweedmouth played their last home game in the league on Saturday, and took a well deserved three points, although they did find themselves one down within the first five minutes when a long ball over the home defence let the Eyemouth forward in and slot the ball past Wardhaugh in the home goal.

After this it was all the home side. First of all Blyth got on the score sheet with his first goal for the Amateurs with a shot that found the roof of the net.

Next it was Robertson who netted after he was first to react when the Eyemouth keeper couldn’t hold on to a Blyth effort.

Eyemouth had a player sent off for something he said to the referee, and with an extra man Tweedmouth kept the ball for long spells frustrating the visitors.

Young Jordan Clark scored his first goal for the Amateurs securing the points for his team. Blyth scored his second and the sides fourth after good work again by Williamson down the right.

The homeside could have had at least another two by half time, but were happy with the way they kept the ball and created chances and more importantly finding the net which has been a problem this season.

At half time the home side was told to keep their concentration and not give the visitors any hope of a comeback, Williamson did just that, by scoring a simple tap in at the far post from a Robertson cross five minutes into the half. The sixth was the best of all when Laverty curled his shot into the top corner of the net from 25 yards, which was just reward for a very good debut.

Tweedmouth countinued to play well and can be pleased with this performance, but have to concentrate for 90 minutes because in the last 15 minutes they took their foot off to let Eyemouth score two easy goals

Tweedmouth Colts 0

CFC Bowholm 2

A very disapointing performance from the young Colts saw them go down to a high flying Bowholm side who in fairness were very ordinary, which showed how bad Tweedmouth were on the day.

The Colts never played any of there trademark flowing football and gifted the visitors both goals in the first half, firstly by failing to clear there lines and only succeeding in playing in the visiting striker,then a lack of communication further up the pitch resulting in another long punt by the visitors caught the home rear guard pushing out and the Colts again were punished.

Further misery for Tweednouth came when JB Clark had to leave the field which looked like a serious injury.

The Colts started the second half slightly better, which wouln’t of been hard, and although they hit the woodwork on no less than three occasions, and also had a header that seemingly crossed the line, they got exactly what they deserved on the day,which was nothing.

A long trip to Peebles is up next for Tweedmouth who will need to improve hugely on this performance.
