Match Report


Dave McQueen netted for the home side within 90 seconds.

It hardly seemed possible that the slender lead would last for the rest of the game, but it did.

This was brought about by Berwick's grim defensive wall, but the Bankies finishing also left a lot to be desired.

Chief sinners were Love and Larnach in the second half, when they were nowhere near low crosses put temptingly across the face of the goal.

The goal that dumped Bankies started with a cross from veteran full back Willie Callaghan. The ball was nodded down by Douglas and McQueen hit it past the diving Jim Gallacher.

Berwick almost stretched the lead just before the break with a dangerous looking lob which was headed over the bar by Davie Mitchell, another veteran back, as Douglas charged in.
