Midlothian keep up chase

MIDLOTHIAN shrugged off the absence of star international figures David Peacock, Colin Walker and Ronnie Duncan to score a fabulous 45-shot victory (128-83) over joint leaders West Fife at Abbeyview in the East section of the Cities & Counties Championship, writes STEWART MEIKLE.

It’s a result that keeps Midlothian on the heels of leading pair West Lothian and Edinburgh & Leith and, although two points adrift going into the final section fixtures, they have a better shot margin bank than both.

Wins on five rinks – skipped by Jim Gibson, Colin McFarlane, Graeme Archer, Ramsay Blair and Craig Hodge – and a single shot defeat for Craig McFarlane made it a brilliant team performance by the visitors.
