Shaun Meikle, scorer of Berwick Rangers Reserves’ second goal at Stenhousemuir.
Four days after Berwick Rangers lost 1-0 to East Stirlingshire at Ochilview, their Reserves were at the same venue for a SPFL Reserve League game against their Stenhousemuir counterparts. ( Tuesday, Oct. 1st. ) The match finished all square at 3-all.
In a much improved performance from the previous Saturday’s 2-0 home East of Scotland League defeat by Kelso United, the Reserves were unlucky not to chalk up their first away win in the Reserve League. Scorers for Berwick were Dean Carse, Shaun Meikle and Josh Morris. Stenhousemuir, mostly outplayed in the second half, were helped by the award of a dubious penalty which the alleged victim, Ross McNeil, converted himself. Earlston’s James Elliot gave his best performance yet in a Berwick shirt. Jonny Fairbairn and Ross Brady also made big impressions in a good all round team display.
The Reserves are due at Hibernian F.C. Training Centre near Ormiston this Saturday, October 5th, for an EoSL First Division match. The first team are in William Hill Scottish Cup action at home to Peterhead on the same afternoon. Kick off at Shielfield in this all SPFL 2 clash is 3:00 p.m.
