A POWERFUL performance by the Souters on Saturday earned them their first point in the new Lowland League.

Selkirk started the match on the attack and within five minutes were a goal ahead when some good work from Craig Scott set Phil Addison up for a 25-yard strike straight into the Threave net.

Watched by a good-sized crowd at Yarrow Park, both teams continued to play fine football throughout the first half, with Selkirk managing to keep their advantage intact.

The visitors came out rejuvenated for the second period and had the better of the early stages, although their equaliser came from a freak cross which gave Gregor Amos in the home goal no chance.

Selkirk had several chances to win the match with close efforts from Jacob Crolla, Phil Addison and Jonny Watt, but had to be satisfied with the draw at the end of the day. It was probably the correct score if you were a neutral supporter.
