Golf: More upsets in the East

Have your say

LONGNIDDRY and Tantallon are out in front at the top of Division 1 in the East Lothian Winter League after another weekend of upsets.

No fewer than six of the eight fixtures resulted in wins for the visiting side, but Longniddry bucked that trend with 5-0 home win over Gullane to take over top spot from their opponents.

In a match that saw all five ties going at least as far as the 17th, Graham Clarke and Kevin Girdler secured the whitewash with a last-green win.

Tantallon maintained their challenge by winning at Haddington – a second successive home defear for Neil Bain’s men.

Down on the coast, defending champions Glen lost for the fourth match in a row, this time to Musselburgh in a close encounter.

In Division 2, Royal Musselburgh are clear at the top after winning at Gifford, but North Berwick also stayed unbeaten with a thumping win over Musselburgh Old.

Dunbar got back on track as they handed out a whitewash at Thorntree, Castle Park picked up a win at Whitekirk - only their second success on the road in this competition - and Craigielaw kept in touch with a win at Kilspindie.
