Sannah Aron bowled a cracking spell as Morton defeated Livingston to lift the East Two cricket title.

The Capital side went into the final day of the cricket season knowing that a victory would see them finishing top.

And at the Meadows at the weekend they made sure there was to be no upset with a very polished bowling display.

Aron led the way with 4-11 as the West Lothian men were all out for just 107, Artish Sekar also getting in on the act for the home side with 2-1.

In their reply Morton were cautious, but knew they had plenty of overs to reach their target. Sekar led the way with the bat with 51 as they made it home with seven wickets in hand in the 40-over contest to spark celebrations.

Morton rounded off a great weekend by picking up the President’s Trophy by defeating Gala in the final.

They bowled the Borderers out for just 78 in the final in Musselburgh and then knocked off the runs required with seven wickets in hand, Artish Sekar leading the way with 46.

It completed a treble of sorts, adding to the league triumph and the Small Clubs Cup win earlier in the summer.

Meanwhile, in East One Musselburgh ended the summer on a high and finished top of the local clubs after they defeated league winners Kelso.

The victory meant that they ended up fourth while Edinburgh Accies finished fifth after captain Andrew Cosh hit 58 not out in a comfortable victory against St Boswells.

Already-relegated Edinburgh South defeated Heriot’s II with Watsonians II winning at West Lothian.
