Whitehill Welfare edged out Berwick Rangers 2-1 at Ferguson Park last night, but this time without the services of South African legend Benni McCarthy,.

The former Porto and Blackburn Rovers striker played and scored in Whitehill’s 5-3 defeat to Hamilton Accies on Sunday but was an absentee from the squad this time round.

However, the Rosewell club are still hoping some sort of deal can be agreed before the Lowland League campaign gets under way on August 2.

Kerr Dodds, who netted a brace in last weekend’s defeat, opened the scoring against the SPFL League Two side after 26 minutes before Rangers’ Dean Carse equalised five minutes before the break.

But winger Steven Manson restored Whitehill’s advantage when he converted after striker Danny Noon had teed him up, and that goal sealed the win.

Whitehill welcome local junior side Penicuik Athletic to Ferguson Park this Saturday.
