United and Legion chase end of season cup success

THE football season is slowly coming to an end, but for Hawick United and Hawick Legion the journey continues.

For tomorrow the two clubs hit the road in cup action.

United travel to face Eyemouth in the semi-final of the Beveridge Cup, while Legion tackle Pencaitland away from home in the Waddell Cup.

It’s the last throw of the dice for the two respective Hawick outfits in their quest for silverware.

Looking ahead to his side’s encounter, United manager George Shepherd said: “It hasn’t been a good season for us as we didn’t do well in the league. Tomorrow though we have a chance to prove ourselves.

“We’re one game away from a cup final so we’ve a lot to play for. That would be a real boost for the club.”

United are without Dean Fry and Colin Turnbull.

Talking of Legion’s chances, co-manager Billy Brunton said: “It’ll be a tough game for us. Pencaitland are a good side and they’re very difficult to beat at home in particular.

“We’ve not had much luck this season so we could do with a bit rub of the green and this would do us fine tomorrow.”
