Desperate Youth Club need players

SELKIRK YOUTH CLUB are in desperate need of players to allow the semi-junior outfit to continue.

Due to a shortage of squad members, several of whom are injured, last Saturday’s game against Hawick Wanderers was postponed, the first time that Youth Club have called off a game in 16 years.

Committee man Lawrence Francis told The Southern: “We are pleading with young men in the Selkirk area, who are of an age to play for us, to get their boots on and help out.

“Otherwise we fear the worst – we won’t be able to fulfil any more of our fixtures.”
