BORDERS Pool League champions Reivers A have completed the treble by winning the League Cup and Knock Out Cupon consecutive days.

On Sunday they scraped by High Level A (Hawick), then staged a brilliant comeback from 4-1 down to sink second division champions Station (Hawick) to lift the League Cup.

Monday saw them complete the treble in style. After losing the first leg 5-4 to Ship A (Melrose) they lost the first game then hit top form to blow away there opponents 6-2 on the night and seal an aggregate win. A tremendous feat never accomplished before.

Captain Scott Simpson told The Southern: “The team have had an unbelievable season and the character shown to win the League Cup was top notch. From struggling all day the guys suddenly clicked after Scott Bowers performed a great finish to spark the comeback and seal a last frame win.

“The KO Cup was pure class after a disappointing first leg. Craig Reid hit top form while Stan Thomson was our rock as the anchor man. Even Les Hunter, our regular sub, showed good form along with myself and Stuart Brown who had a great season.

“A class squad who deserve the praise.”
