Week 11 1st XVI

Our opponents tonight Queensberry have had the spoils in our encounters so far this year and after the visit down to Granton a few weeks ago and last Friday nights Edin Cup match we are yet to record a winning rink against them yet,however our recent league form has been reasonably good and we welcomed Queensberry with reserved confidence.

Jamie skipped Grant Young,Ian McDonald and Daz Prentice on R3 and it was tough going from the off, our guys were on the end of a sore one here,

Young Gogs skipped Garry Harrison,Gordon Wilson Snr & Davy Scott on R4 and we just never got into the game even at the last end we were actually 1 shot up but none of us knew how this happened because we certainly didn’t deserve it and with Frank O’Reillys last bowl draw for 2 we got what we deserved,a big fat O.

Jim Bathgate skipped Richie Newall,Allan Mitchell and Larry Sorrel on R5 and they seemed to get off to a good start but were pegged back and once again the Queensberry skip seemed to have all the answers,defeat No 3.

Possibly the surprise result of the night but a very welcome win came on R1, with Ian Miller away on holiday Andy Reid was promoted to skip, Steve Raeburn,Walter Murray  and Big George all played their part against a very decent Queensberry 4,and the lads got of to a great start and never let up, great win lads well done.

Congratulations to Queensberry on your win and Good Luck from all at the Northern in your Edin Cup final.
