Duns hosted Pitfour FC of Perthshire in a historic Scottish Cup tie. It was the first time the team from the Scottish Borders had reached the open stages of the natinal competition, and they had their sights set on a place in the last 32 of the competition.

The first half saw plenty chances at both ends but no goals. Minutes after the restart Duns took the lead and doubled it a few minutes later.

The visitors were not going to give up without a fight though and pulled a goal back. Just when it looked like an equaliser may be on the cards, the Dingers grabbed a third. 

Duns goalie Philip Smith made some fine saves to keep the visitors at bay and his side added a fourth late on. Pitfour grabbed a consolation in the last minute but it was the home side who celebrated upon the final whistle.

Full Time: Duns Juniors 4-2 Pitfour FC
