Heriot’s have been boosted by the return of two experienced players as they aim to make it four wins in a row in all competitions tomorrow.

In the first week of the season the Goldenacre men lost twice to Carlton – in the CSL Eastern Premiership and the Murgitroyd Masterton Trophy. But since then they have defeated Arbroath and Aberdeenshire (league) and Poloc (Citylets Scottish Cup) to leave them feeling good ahead of the home match with Stoneywood-Dyce.

Steve Knox returns to bolster the bating line-up while Sean Weeraratna will add pace to the bowling attack. They come into the XI for Michael Kelly and Scott Robertson.

Ahead of the match against visitors who have lost three from three in the Premiership so far, Heriot’s captain Keith Morton said: “We have managed to build-up a bit of momentum over the last couple of weeks and we want to keep that going.

“Last weekend was a good one for us getting two wins in two days on the road and now we have to keep those high standards up and focus on what will be a tricky match.”

Mazars Grange also won two from two last weekend and they are at home to Aberdeenshire.

For this one they have Ryan Flannigan unavailable so Tom Foulds slots into the side.

Carlton are top and unbeaten in five matches in all competitions this summer. They will be missing Hugo Southwell, who scored 96 seven days ago against Glenrothes, as they make the trip to Forfarshire.

Omar Ahmad is also out so into the XI for the encounter at Forthill are Ali Shah, who scored 91 for the second XI last week, and Ruairi Macpherson.

Watsonians, who beat Stoneywood-Dyce in the league last weekend before being thumped by Grange in the cup, make five changes for the home match with Falkland.

Andrew Learmonth, Kenny Rae, Martin Versfeld, Tom Cullen and Alec Sim come into the side with the injured Dewald Nel amongst those missing.

In the Baillie Gifford ESCA Championship, leaders Edinburgh welcome Mazars Grange II to Campbell Park.

RH Corstorphine and SMRH are also unbeaten and they are both on the road at Stuart&Stuart Penicuik and Carlton II respectively.
