Waverley seal cup passage

Scottish Amateur Cup first round

Balgonie Scotia0

Hawick Waverley2

GIVING an excellent all-round show, Waverley marched into the second round of the Scottish Amateur Cup in fine style.

Facing completely unknown opposition in Balgonie Scotia, Waverley scored both their goals in the first half.

Barry Shiel notched the opener when driving a shot into the net on meeting a Scott Craig corner.

Waverley, in turn, went further ahead through a Ross McLeod strike.

In the second period the homesters had a little more say in matters, but Waverley defended well and coped with anything that came their way.

Waverley almost netted a third through a good effort from Taylor Hope.
