Letham get the better of Wellbank

Letham 3 Wellbank 2

In the opening game of the season, Letham faced tough test in the first match of their League Cup section.

In a very tight match Letham edged victory, with goals from Archibald, Robertson and Mathieson.

Letham were the better team in the first half, with the best of the chances and most of the possession but failed to open the scoring and it was goal-less at the break.

In the second half Letham had to come from behind twice.

The Lads Club’s first was notched by Archibald, the second coming from the penalty spot with a clinical finish from Robertson.

But the best goal of the game came late on from Mathieson, who left the Wellbank keeper with no chance with a wonder strike from out wide to secure the points for Letham.

Letham host Kelso this Saturday in the second match of the League Cup section stage (kick-off 2 pm).
