CALA EDINBURGH have slipped out of Scotland’s indoor hockey elite but their concentration this season has been on preserving their Division One status outdoors.
The Edinburgh side, who won a play-off with Glasgow outfit Hillhead to move up to Division One last season, have failed to win a game so far this term and have accumulated only one point from 12 starts.
They were whipped 16-1 by long-time league pace-setters Grove Menzieshill in their opening game at Perth, then lost 8-4 to Clydesdale and were beaten 9-1 by Dundee Wanderers.
David Guy, one of their senior players, said: “We’ve had problems getting a team out but the guys that have turned out have worked their socks off.”
Inverleith, the defending champions, kept on Grove’s coat-tails with a 13-1 victory over Kelburne, the outdoor champions, a 10-1 mauling of Dundee Wanderers and a 16-1 victory over Clydesdale. Their only defeat this term was against Grove, but they do have a superior goal advantage.
