Tweedmouth picked up their first point of the season from a hard earned draw with Jed Legion, who have in turn drawn their first two games of the season.

The game was played in a constant downpour and players from both sides struggled at times to come to terms with the slick surface.

Gibb, returning to the Amateurs line up for his first game of the season, showed his experience, making a last ditch tackle to keep his side level, before Thompson almost got on the end of a slack back pass at the other end.

Tweedmouth eventually took the lead three minutes before half-time, Robertson’s cross shot deceiving the home keeper and dropping in at the back post.

The lead did not last long, however, as Crowe misplaced a header from a long through ball. The clearance was latched on to by the winger who cut back for a finish from the edge of the area.

Tweedmouth started the second half on the front foot. Robertson capitalised on a defensive error to set up Williamson, whose curling shot shaved the crossbar.

On the hour mark Phillips then went on a surging run from the half way line, seeing his shot saved by the feet of the home keeper.
