Selkirk still in contention



A REJUVENATED Selkirk brushed aside the challenge of GHA on Saturday to keep themselves in contention in the National League promotion race.

“When we’re able to play at pace it always gives us a big advantage and that’s exactly what happened on Saturday,” said Selkirk head coach Ally Dickson.

“The whole side kept their focus for the full 80 minutes, doing the basics right and working hard for each other.”

No-one epitomised Selkirk’s ‘up-and-at-them’ attitude better than full-back Fraser Harkness. Back to his belligerent best, the Scotland Club XV internationalist crossed for a hat-trick of tries in typically bravura fashion.

Angus Duckett added a brace while the other three tries went to Gordon Patterson, Callum Marshall and Lee Kibble. Rory Banks added five conversions and a penalty to complete a good day’s work.
