As the news came through from Craigentinny that all three rinks won and at home there were two winning rinks The “Eagles ” will play Brunstane in the Quarter Final . Lets hope that this can turn the season for all.

League Week 8

Another bad day at the office for the 2nds. Only the rink skipped by Hugh Hilson mounted any great challenge at Craigentinny and they were sadly undone at the last when lying 2 up they dropped a 4 and the match. None of the other 3 rinks were ever really in the running and this was reflected in the overall score. However the 2nds have 4 home games in the second half of the season and while thoughts now change to survival rather than honours confidence remains high that we can pull ourselves up the table over the next few weeks.

League week 7

Following on from last weeks’ disappointing away defeat at Willowbrae hopes were high of a return to winning ways at home to HIillside. However such hopes quickly faded with 3 of the NBC rinks failing to register a shot in the first 4 ends. Craig Snodgrass’s team never got going and fell to a heavy defeat. This was quickly followed by the demise of Bob Lee’s squad. A brief light was flickered as ROC’s four recorded a victory and, in a grandstand finish, Phil Rae and his squad almost completed a tremendous comeback when lying 3, and game, at the last were beaten by a deflection. Away to Craigentinny for the start of the second half of the league next week and the only way is up for the Eagles!

The mood in the clubrooms was definitely lifted however by news of the First teams stunning 9-0 victory away to Hillside

Friday night’s clash with Liberton in the Edinburgh Cup has been cancelled owing to Liberton’s withdrawal.
