34 - 19 win at Biggar

Jed-Forest beat Biggar 34 - 19 today to secure National league 1 status for another season.

Playing against a strong wind Jed trailed 14 - 10 at half time after John Szkudro and Donald Grieve had brought us back into the game after trailing 14 - 0 early on.

Monty Mitchell gave Jed a brief lead early in the second half but Biggar hit back to go 19 - 17 up.

Jed have struggled in the latter stages of games in recent weeks but we had much stronger bench today and it was Darren Gillespie who came on to score two late tries to secure the win for Jed. Danny Ritchie kicked 3 second half conversions and a very late penalty to make it 34 - 19 to Jed.

Today's win means we finish 8th in the league win Hillhead/Jordanhill and Biggar relegated.
