Teenager Will Edwards led the way for Grange II as they defeated Watsonians II at Myreside. A century from the talented Edwards, the younger brother of under-19 World Cup player Henry, helped his side post a total which the hosts were never going to reach once they lost early wickets in reply.

Holy Cross’s day started well against Dunfermline, but the visitors to Arboretum fought back to secure an unlikely win.

Rob Bainbridge and Shannon Bonfield were on top form in taking 4-23 and 4-30 respectively as Dunfermline were all out for 102. The visiting bowlers were also at their best, though, and Holy Cross were skittled out for 87 in reply.

Murrayfield DAFS travelled to East Lothian and came back from Musselburgh with a 32-run victory.

Batting first, DAFS made 162 all out and then took the ten Musselburgh wickets for 130.
