Capital display from gutsy Tweedsiders



After a busy morning playing school fixtures the young Kelso team converged on the Edinburgh Academy pitches to combine their talents against a very experienced Grange side.

What the Tweedsiders lacked in adult league play they covered well in skills, determination and fitness. Too quiet to start with Kelso struggled away to get the ball into the net despite having the main pressure. Thankfully midway through Rachel Burgher, who had an excellent game, scored the first goal.

After a half time team talk from coaches Isla Burgher and Lynn Young Kelso began to gel. The improved communication paid off and a further goal coming from Rosie Brown (Coldstream) early in the 2nd half settled the side even more.

Grange broke through to sneak in a strong strike and bring them within a point but this is where the young side really showed their mettle creating an opportunity for Emma Mack to score from a corner strike.

Notable performances came from Jodie Osborne, Kirsty Morris, Skye Chatburn but this was very much a team effort as well as a much deserved win for this young squad who are improving with every game. Next up - Ross High at Earlston High School on Saturday.
