SAUCHIE topped off a tremendous season as they secured second place with their 3-1 win over Musselburgh.

Goals from Sam Collumbine, Kieran Anderson and David McCaughie saw out a routine win for the Reds, which was enough to guarantee Sauchie finished second place in the League.

Assistant manager Darren Cummings praised the team from start to finish and said he was delighted for the team to finish second place.

“The boys were excellent from the off,” Cummings said. “We had a few changes – boys missing from work, injuries.

“We brought Kris Kelly and Lucas Williamson in and the two of them were fantastic.

“It was a really good day at the office. There was a bit of pressure on us from Musselburgh – they were on a good run of form and were sitting in third.

“It was important for us to win – we needed a point to consolidate second but we wanted three points and that’s what we got.”

The win over Musselburgh sees Sauchie finish the league behind Linlithgow Rose, who were crowned East of Scotland League champions on Saturday.

“If you had asked us at the start of the season,” Cummings added. “We had wanted to win the league but the boys have done fantastic and second is a good effort.

“Few games through the season, we let slip but that’s football. But overall, a really good season as well.”

Sauchie also have a chance to earn some silverware to top off their season, as they booked themselves into a cup final after a win against Edinburgh University.

They await news of their opponent in the East of Scotland Cup Final – either Dundonald or Stirling University.

Cummings said: “We’ve got a cup final coming up as well – Saturday was a chance for us to manage the squad as well.

“We’ve got a few boys managing knocks – Docherty, Smith, we rested them. The cup final is in the back of our minds and we would love to finish off the season with some silverware.

“The boys would deserve that. It’s going to be tricky, we find out on Wednesday but we’ll be ready for it.”
