THERE will be no repeat of last year’s Dispatch Trophy final after Carrickvale and Silverknowes came out the hat in the same half of the draw.
Carrickvale start their defence of the title at the Braids against Braids United Seniors, with either British Rugby Club of Paris, a team that has featured Gavin Hastings in recent years, or Edinburgh Thistle lying in wait for the winners.
Silverknowes launch their bid to regain the trophy against Buckstone Golfing Society and, providing they win, they will then face either Kilgour Wealth Management or Braids United.
Harrison came out along with Harrison Seniors in a draw that featured 59 teams after a late entry was filed by Watsonian, who will face former winners Banton Hotel.
