Linden caught short in deluge

Hawick Linden0


THEY say it never rains, but pours – not only was that the case with the Linden’s injuries, but also from the heavens on Saturday.

The depleted Hawick outfit went behind after seven minutes and never managed to recover as Dunbar continued their rampage in the rain.

With players starting to suffer the effects of the weather, officials and coaches agreed the match should end and the referee brought matters to a conclusion after 60 minutes which, under league rules, allowed the result to stand.
