4-2 win puts Langlee Amateurs on top of Border Amateur Football Association’s A division
Langlee, last season’s A division runners-up, won away to Tweeddale Rovers and Greenlaw got the better of Earlston Rhymers on home turf.
Langlee’s scorers at Peebles’ Kerfield Park were Jack Hay at the double and Des Sutherland, with an own goal adding to their tally and Lewis Swan and Lewis Grandison on target for their hosts.
Greenlaw’s goals were scored by William and Ross Smillie, Sean Spoor and Michael Macpherson, with Phil Addison and Siris Davidson replying for Rhymers.
Beating Chirnside United 2-0 at home, thanks to goals from Conor Devaney and Sean Phillips, left defending champions Duns Amateurs in third place, level on six points with fourth-placed Biggar United and fifth-placed Newtown.
