Selkirk Under 20s were record breakers at the weekend for all the wrong reasons - losing their Scottish Youth Cup tie to Ayr United by 25 goals to nil.

The young Souters side was trailing nine goals at the interval and the one way traffic continued after the break with a further 16 goals.

Ryan Nisbet was the Ayr top goalscorer with an incredible 11 goals in the tie staged at the 3G Arena in Galashielson Sunday afternoon.

It is a record scoreline for a Scottish Youth Cup tie.


Weather: Temperatures picking up

This weekend gave us a sudden blast of winter with cold winds from the north meaning that temperatures hovered at around freezing.

The Jet Stream has spent the last few days to the south of the UK - allowing the colder air in.

But it is on the move. Through this week the Jet Stream is moving back to the north allowing milder air to move in- picking temperatures back up to average for November.

The inpatient ward at Kelso Hospital has been closed to new admissions as a precautionary measure due to patients experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhoea and vomiting, thought to be caused by the Norovirus.

An outbreak of the Norovirus recently caused a ward at the Borders General Hospital to be closed.

Evelyn Rodger, Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Acute Services said:

In order to safeguard vulnerable patients and enable us to limit the spread of this highly infectious virus, we continue to ask members of the public to carefully consider their visits to community hospitals and the Borders General Hospital, and that anyone who has experienced diarrhoea and vomiting symptoms in the past 48 hours does not visit the hospital.
