TWO teenagers accused of carrying out assaults in the grounds of Kelso Rugby Club have walked free following a trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.

A 17-year-old male - who cannot be named for legal reasons - had been charged with knocking a 47-year-old man unconscious during an incident on August 25 last year.

A second teenager appeared on the same complaint charged with assaulting another man also in the grounds of Kelso Rugby Club.

Eighteen year old Lewis Finlay, of Newtown St Boswells, had denied, while acting with children, assaulting a man and when he was on the ground, repeatedly kicking him on the head and body to his injury.

Following the trial, both teenagers had the charges against them found not proven.
