Superb start

Ettrick Forest continued their good start to the season with a hard-fought victory at home to Newtown by 76-73.

The combined seniors had mixed fortunes – they struggled when going down to a 23-shot away defeat to Jedburgh, although they did manage a home victory over Abbotsford by 63-48. Saturday saw the Peter Burns Memorial Open Pairs Trophy take place and the beaten semi-finalists were S. Bell and I. Hogg, and J. Fisher and E. Roberts.

In a closely-contested final which went to an extra end, G. Beagley and M. Neil were defeated by C. Sandilands and G. Sandilands. The club would like to thank D. Burns for his continued support.
