Aidan scores hat-tricks wherever he goes



The Legion made the familiar short trip up the A7 to Hawick on Saturday looking to avenge the disappointment of losing one nil up there only a fortnight ago.

A change in shape and a couple of changes in personnel saw Johnson available again between the sticks while Wilson was handed a chance from the start and take it he did as the Legion showed great effort, determination and a huge will to win in very wet and windy conditions.

The first half was all one way traffic with the Legion penning their opposition in and creating numerous chances. The opening came midway through the half and soon the floodgates opened with Langholm three up at the break thanks to a fine double from Wilson and a superb opportunistic finish from Mattinson.

The second half saw Legion against the wind and Hawick did threaten briefly when netting an early opportunity but the goals kept coming with Winter, A Little and fittingly Wilson completing a richly deserved hat trick. The youngster had two early chances to score before he did break the deadlock but impressively didn’t let it affect him as he bagged his first treble. The ovation given when he came off was very well deserved and should fill him with confidence going forward.

The final goal came near the end from a fine free kick on the edge of the box from Cuthbert to complete what had been a very impressive performance in the middle of the park and one in which a goal capped it off.

This was a real team performance with every man playing his part and one in which the whole club can be proud of. It was great to see the subs getting good game time and they all contributed well when stepping into the fray.

Next week the club travels to Innerleithen to face Leithen Rovers in the first round of the Waddell cup where more of the same will be required.
