Whitehill Welfare finished honours even with Gretna on Saturday when they hosted their final Lowland League fixture of the season.

It was the visitors who started strongly, and with only six minutes gone Lewis Todd found Joe Slattery on the edge of the box and fired an unstoppable left-footed shot into the bottom corner.
