Garry O’Connor’s men managed to maintain their winning ways on Saturday, and get their first Lowland League victory over Star at the sixth time of asking.

Selkirk came out of the blocks quickly and dominated the early possession. Jamie Butler fired in a terrific 25 yard shot and, before Star could recover, they were two up as a clever back heel from former Crystal Palace player Bayan Fenwick fed Phil Addison who curled the ball past the home keeper from just inside the box.
