Mercer at the double for Melrose

Hawick Legion Rovers1

Melrose3

Rovers started well and took the lead through a Steven Aries goal.

But Melrose equalised through Bob Cleghorn and started to gain the upper hand.

The league new boys went on to score a further two times through William Mercer and could have won by a bigger tally had it not been for some excellent saves from Rovers keeper Kevin Miller.
