The Murgitroyd Masterton Trophy first round continues tonight when Murrayfield DAFS take on RH Corstorphine and Edinburgh play Morton.

Last week four ties took place with Mazars Grange, Stuart&Stuart Penicuik, SMRH and Carlton progressing in the Twenty20 event at the expense of Watsonians, Marchmont, Edinburgh South and Heriot’s respectively.

RH Corstorphine will start as favourites against DAFS this evening, given the fact that they play in a higher division. They have won two from two in the Baillie Gifford ESCA Championship while, after seeing their opening East One match called off, DAFS kick-started things with a win over Watsonians II at the weekend.

Edinburgh reached the final last year, knocking out Carlton on the way, and they will be favourites against Morton of East One.

Tomorrow night the 
seventh of the eight first-round ties is scheduled for Holy Cross to take on Edinburgh Accies at 
Arboretum. Holy Cross have lost two from two in the Championship so far while East One outfit Accies defeated Linlithgow at the weekend.

Finally, on Thursday night, Linlithgow are set to take 
on Livingston with the East Two visitors out to cause an upset.
