The title showdown at Glencorse on Sunday week was set up after two keenly-contested semi-final ties.

Duddingston beat Royal Burgess 5.5-3.5 at Musselburgh while Turnhouse edged out Longniddry 5-4 at Merchants.

Duddingston beat Craigielaw in last year’s decider to land the prize for the first time since 2006.

The 2022 final will now see Duddingston bid to claim the crown for a record tenth time, with Turnhouse trying to deliver title No 3 after making the breakthrough in 2016 then repeating the feat two years later.
