Watson reshapes Edinburgh & Leith line-up

Have your say

Edinburgh & Leith bid to bounce back from defeats to West Lothian and Stirling East against Fife at Bainfield tomorrow in week five of the Cities & Counties Championship.

Team manager Willie Watson has performed some surgery in the shape of Daniel Gormley, Ewan Craig, and Robert Donaldson coming in at the expense of Stephen Pringle, Brian Stoddart, and Darren McKenny.

Watson has also recast his line-up with Darren Hush switched away from James Hogg to play third to Paul O’Donnell, John McDermott moved from Robert Marshall to play third to Hogg, Donaldson lining up at third to Marshall with Craig at second while Gormley plays lead to Paul Veitch.

West Lothian bid to extend their undefeated run against Borders at Melrose. Team manager Jimmy Mallon makes one enforced change with Paul Lynas coming in for Diz Drysdale at lead to Steven Fleming.

East Lothian are hot favourites to beat winless West Fife at Abbeyview but are without Alistair Kennedy and the Scotland cap is replaced by junior cap Grant Thomson who lines up at third to Billy Mellors.

Midlothian are targeting a good result against Stirling East at Gorebridge where the absence of Craig More sees team manager Drew Pearson recall Andy Winton at lead to AJ Knight with Tom Moffat switched to Danny McDougall.
