Souters succumb to Brophy treble


Hamilton Acc U-20s 6

New Selkirk goalkeeper Gregor Amos was unable to stop his side going down to their fourth pre-season friendly loss against a slick Hamilton Under-20s side on Monday night.

The visitors were 3-0 up at the break thanks to a double from Eamonn Brophy and another from Craig Johnston, with debutant Amos – on a season-long loan from Falkirk – having to make a number of stops to keep the scoreline respectable.

Selkirk were missing the likes of Jason Inglis from their squad and three minutes after half-time it was 4-0 as Jamie Higginbottom pulled down Andrew Ryan in the penalty box and Brophy completed his hat-trick from the spot.

Andrew Ryan then got a deserved goal following a great move involving Shaun Want and Daniel Armstrong before Want completed the rout from close range in the final minute.
