Tweedmouth Harrow lifted their first cup in Border Amateur League football with a 3-0 win over Highfields United in the final of the Collie Cup on Saturday.

The two Berwick sides met in the showdown at Duns, but it was the harrow who emerged champions, giving them their third cup of the calendar year, having already won two finals in last season’s North Northumberland League.

Jonny Simpson and Martyn Tait both netted hat-tricks for Tweedmouth with Robin Brown their other scorer.

Highfields were the better side in the first half but they found themselves 3-0 down at the break.

Kevin France scored twice for United in the second half, but by then the Harrow were in their stride and they confidently tucked away another four goals to run out worthy winners.

In the league, Tweedmouth Amateurs faced Earlston Rhymers at home in the B Division.

Unfortunately, the game was abandoned after only 15 minutes play when one of the visiting players sustained a broken leg.
