It was quite an achievement given that teams representing Leagues from Aberdeen, Ayrshire, Carnoustie, Fife, Glasgow, Linlithgow, Dumbarton, and Lanarkshire were also competing.

It also included both of Paul Lawrie’s sons, Craig and Michael, who were playing for Deeside.

Liberton, represented by Anthony Blaney, Keiran Cantley, Scott Finlay, Alan McLaren, Fraser Christie and Daniel Eardley, won their qualifier by 14 shots.

Former Scottish champions Craigielaw also progresed with a team comprising of Calum Cochrane, Lewis Ross, Stuart Blair, Oliver Duffy, Willem Kerr and Marcus Cullen.

Pumpherston produced an equally impressive display to win by 11 shots in Dundee, where Chris Curran, Kerr Anderson, Adam Loch, Andrew Loch, Calum Kelly and Mark McGeoch flew the flag for the West Lothian club.

On duty for Gullane as they, too, progressed to the last four were Alexander Wilson, Tom Simmonds, Graham Swan, Scott 
Gillies, Duncan McLean 
and Michael Williams.

The semi-finals are at Panmure on October 15, when Craigielaw will play against Pumpherston and Gullane will face Liberton in a medal matchplay format with the final in the
