Share of the spoils for Waverley

Hawick Waverley1

Chirnside Utd1

IN WHAT turned out to be a keenly fought tussle, Peter Gellaitry put Waverley ahead in driving home a Neal McConnell lay off.

After the livewire Liam Lavery had twice came near to stretching Waverley’s lead with good efforts, Chirnside equalised in the second half with a perfectly struck curling free kick that sailed into the roof of the net.

It was anybody’s game from here on and Waverley’s Grant Brownlee drove a shot against the post while at the other end Hawick keeper Ally Willison kept United at bay with two great saves.
