No song of the South for Rovers

Despite a valient fight back against Pencaitland on Saturday, Gala Rovers failed to bring the South Cup back to the Borders.

Playing at Innerleithen’s Victoria Park the Border Amateur League Champions suffered an early blow when two Dean Woods goals put Pencaitland well in front before the 20- minute mark.

Des Sutherland grabbed one back for the Borderers but a third from Woods in the 70th minute sealed the deal.

Rovers Scott Mackenzie commented: “All the players were obviously devastated that we couldn’t bring the cup home.”
