Jed Legion 4 Chirnside Utd Colts 3


JED booked their semi-final spot in the Forsyth Cup last Saturday seeing off a decent Chirnside outfit.

A Barrie Melrose header gave Jed the lead inside 15 minutess and shortly after Chandler doubled the home side’s lead, tucking away a Swailes cut back.

The visitors pulled one back on the half hour mark and on the balance of play should have been on level terms at the break.

Jed went up a gear in the second half but were still far from their best. Swailes smashed home a third for Jed from the edge of the box and Jeffrey scored the goal of the game with a strike from 25 yards to put Jed firmly in control.

The visitors scored twice inside the final quarter of an hour to make it a nervy final few minutes for the home side but they managed to hold on to secure a semi-final berth.
