TURNHOUSE picked up a valuable point at Kingsknowe as the West Edinburgh Winter League cranked into action again after the fetive break.

A strong pairing of Allyn Dick and Graham Muir for the home team comfortably saw off Steven Armstrong and his partner Lee McCathie 5 and 4 in the top match.

The old and new guard of the away team, Neil Anderson and Leigh Lawson, levelled the scores as they beat David McCann and Alan Crabbe.

But Turnhouse rescued their crucial away point thanks to Stevie Robb and Gordon Leitch beating Donny Munro and Bill Buchan in the anchor match.
