Fielding several Under-19s players Peebles Rovers signed off for the season with a promising display on Monday evening.

A hat-trick by striker Stevie Shennan at a rain-lashed Netherdale, however, ended the hopes of a mid table finish for Jason Girdwood’s men.

He opened the scoring after 20 minutes when he rounded a defender and shot past keeper Craig Nisbet.

Rovers equalised through Craig Edgar but just five minutes before half-time Mark Bolton, in his final game for Eyemouth, fired the Fishermen back in front.

In the second half Bolton turned provider, feeding Shennan who headed over the top of the keeper to make it 3-1.

Peebles came back with a screamer of a goal from all of 35 yards from James Manson but with just five minutes to go Shennan made the game safe when he notched his third. Greg Shortreed notched a third for Peebles in the dying seconds.
