Gala Fairydean Rovers break home duck with 2-1 win against Berwick Rangers
Gala Fairydean Rovers yesterday, July 31, broke their home duck this season at the third time of asking with a 2-1 victory over Berwick Rangers.
The Galashiels side went into the game without a single point to their name at Netherdale this Scottish Lowland Football League season after losing 4-0 to Edinburgh’s Spartans on Tuesday, July 27, and 3-0 to East Stirlingshire on Saturday, July 17.
Even a goal against them by midfielder Scott-Taylor Mackenzie, their top scorer last season, couldn’t stop them claiming all three points this time round, however.
That win takes them up to tenth place in the league, with seven points from five games.
