Souters start where they left off – in fine form

SELKIRK RIFLE CLUB kicked off the new winter season with a Shoulder to Shoulder league encounter.

Heriot’s made their way down the A7 for their first visit to Selkirk, hoping to get their programme off to a good start against last year’s champions.

Alas, it was not to be, as the home team, despite being two regular team members short, took the victory easily by 10 points. Selkirk always had the edge, taking the matchplay points 7 to 1.

Top scorers for Selkirk were Bill Vaughan and John Milne with 195 each, Darren Brown 192 and Keith Nixon 191.

In the first of this season’s monthly medals, Keith Nixon won the seniors and Darren Brown the juniors.
