Tweedmouth Amateurs vs Gordon FC in the Forsyth Cup at Earlston.

Gordon completed a cup treble on Saturday afternoon, as the Forsyth Cup final went the way of the form book.

It was Tweedmouth who had the first chance of the game; a long throw from Wood was flicked on at the near post by Wright and headed narrowly wide by Phillips.

They were made to pay for this on the quarter hour mark, as Turnbull was adjudged to have bundled over the Gordon attacker inside the area. The resultant spot kick gave Cain no chance and Gordon took the lead.

Tweedmouth thought they had equalised on 25 minutes when Antcliff rounded the keeper to score, only to find that he had been adjudged offside.

Tweedmouth made a bright start to the second half, but Wood was forced to clear off the line from a corner.

Midway through the second half Gordon extended their lead. Slick movement on the right led to a pass to the edge of the area, where the shot was deflected past Cain.

Three minutes later Tweedmouth thought they had a lifeline after Lauder was brought down by the Gordon keeper, but after initially giving the decision, then consulting with the linesman, the referee reversed his decision and a drop ball was the final verdict.

Tweedmouth tried to force their way back into the game., but Gordon counter-attacked as they ran out winners.
