Gordon AFC won the Border Amateur League Walls Cup on Saturday when they beat Biggar in a well-contested final at Peebles.

Gordon, who are still in with a shout of the B League championship, and who play local rivals Greenlaw in the final of the Waddell Cup this weekend, picked up their first piece of silverware for the season when they came from behind to win.

And it was substitute Danny Simpson who was the hero of the hour, coming off the bench and netting twice after the Berwickshire side found themselves 2-1 down.

Gordon took the lead in what was a tense match, but Biggar always looked a dangerous side and after levelling at 1-1 they scored again.

The game changed when Simpson was introduced and he struck twice to give his side the trophy.

Gordon now go on to face Greenlaw in the final of the Waddell Cup this Saturday, at Greenlaw.

And they must face Biggar again the following weekend (May 17) in what could be a crunch league fixture.

z On Tuesday night, Gala Fairydean Rovers amateurs secured a final place in the Beveridge Cup with a 2-0 win over Hawick Waverley.

With no quarter given for much of the game, the Rovers finally struck in the 75th minute, with Paul Hossack scoring the first goal, before Shaun Hardie sealed the win two minutes into injury time.

The final against Newtown will be played at Greenlaw on Friday, May 16 (kick-off 6.45pm).
