Back to winning ways for Duns in the league

Duns were back to league action on Saturday with New Hawthorn Park just managing to survive the frost with many games not so lucky.

After a couple of weeks of depleted squads through injuries and suspensions Duns were able to name a full squad of 16 and started very brightly pressing Kelso into their half early on.

The early pressure was rewarded in the way of a penalty. A good run by Kieran Swinney saw him brought down inside the area by the Kelso defender. Swinney stepped up only to see his penalty saved by the Kelso keeper. Duns were soon on the attack again and from a well delivered corner from Swinney, Stewart ‘Busquets’ Liddell headed the ball into the top corner leaving the keeper no chance.

Kelso replied relatively quickly through a ball up the right which should have easily been cleared, however rolled through into the path of the Kelso striker due to DeMarco losing his footing. 1-1 against the run of play.

Duns’ dominance throughout was highlighted by the 11 corners for and none against, and it was from one of these that Duns yet again scored their second. Swinney again the provider for Liddell producing a carbon copy of the first goal.

It then became a comfortable afternoon for Duns who used the large pitch to their advantage playing some nice football in the process.
An impressive defensive display from Demarco, Renton & Bunyan laid the foundation for the Duns attacking players to enjoy things.

Duns Captain Sean Robertson who’s work rate was fantastic finally got his reward with 2 goals from close range making it 4-1 to Duns.
Spoor also had a great effort to extend Dums’ lead only to see his long range effort canon off the upright only to bounce away to safety.

Billy Short rounded off an impressive display over the 90 minutes yet again with the Duns youngster passing the ball through to Mo Ponton who showed his class, calmly slotting the ball home for Duns 5th of the afternoon.

Euan Taylor also impressed late on coming close to making it 6.

A vast improvement in performance for Duns after a very disappointing result last week against Gordon in the Waddell Cup.

Duns are at Home again this Saturday against Earlston Rhymers kick off 2pm
