Hat-tricks from Dean Jeffrey and Daniel Gillie steered Legion to a clear-cut league victory.

Jed travelled to Wilton Park for the second time in a week, having beat Hawick Legion previously, looking to continue their good start to the season.

Graeme Hyland picked out Jeffrey in the box with a cross inside 30 seconds and his header rocketed into the roof of the net to get the visitors off to the perfect start.

Jed were soon two up, this time Nathan Gillie supplying the cross and Jeffrey placing the ball past the home keeper.

It was then Daniel Gillie’s turn to get on the scoresheet, netting a quickfire double to give the visitors a comfortable lead at the break.

Gillie notched his hat-trick just after the break, tapping home at the back post.

The visitors went further ahead, Jeffrey getting his hat-trick when he was on hand to prod home a Nathan Gillie pass.

Legion’s main sponsor this season is local business Chips Away who offer specialist vehicle bodywork repairs, alloy wheel refurbishment, free estimates and courtesy vehicles.

Jedburgh branch manager Andy Bathgate said he was delighted to be sponsoring the team this year and wishes them all the best for the forthcoming season.
