Hawick Waverley got back on track last Saturday with a morale-boosting victory at Ancrum, writes John Slorance.

And what’s more, Waverley, who had crashed to defeat in six out of seven games before their weekend win, did it minus a manger following the recent resignation of Paul Brownlee.

Players Neal McConnell andAlan Campbell were in charge of the side for the Ancrum match, and talking of matters, Campbell toldthe Hawick News: “Neal is the main man, but I’m helping him out and that’s what will be happening until the club appoints a new manager.

“We’ve been getting a great response from the players. Numbers have been really good and the boys’ attitude has been just excellent.

“It was brilliant to get a win over Ancrum and it’s been a big boost for morale.”

This afternoon, Waverley play host to Greenlaw in the Border Amateur ‘A’ Division, and looking ahead to the game, Campbell said: “It’ll be a tough game against Greenlaw. But after last Saturday’s performance I think we are starting to turn the corner and there is no reason why we shouldn’t get a win.”
