All-Border clash incentive

HAVING made the knockout stages of the Premier Cup competition, Hawick and Melrose go head-to-head with Currie and Heriot’s respectively this weekend.

And what better incentive than an all-Border semi-final clash if they win.

Mansfield Park is the venue for the Hawick match on Saturday, while Melrose and Heriot’s, who exchanged cup final victories at Murrayfield in 2007/08 and 2008/09, will play at Goldenacre on Sunday in the last 16.

Elsewhere in the competition, Boroughmuir face Dundee, while Ayr await the winners between West of Scotland v Glasgow Hawks.
