Hawick Royal Albert stepped their pre-season preparations up a notch with a 3-0 victory over Hawick United at Albert Park on Saturday.

Royalists’ Kevin Strathdee notched a brace, with the Albert Park side’s other counter an own goal from United keeper John Paul Drysdale.

Albert coach Davie Aitkin said: “Considering we had four players missing, it was a very reasonable performance.”
