JED booked their place in the quarter-final of the Forsyth Cup with a relatively comfortable win over Langholm last Saturday.

It was a pretty drab first period as both teams struggled to cope with the strong wind and bobbly pitch conditions.

Playing with the wind in the second half the home side dominated proceedings. Daniel Gillie put Jed in the lead early in the half with a well worked goal involving Daniel Chandler.

The lead was soon doubled, again Gillie applying the finishing touches.

The Jed striker notched his hat-trick soon after prodding home a loose ball in the Langholm box.

Substitute Connor Dickson almost made it four near the end but he was foiled by a fine diving stop from the Langholm keeper.
