The first Mortonhall pairing of Karen Ferguson-Snedden and Janet Reid-Thomas got off to a good start as they went five up after five holes and never really looked back against Anne Hanson and Morag Wardrop.

In the back match, Turnhouse won the hole of the match as Jen Dick hit a superb second on to the front of the green at the fifth and Linda Robertson holed a 30-footer for an eagle.

But, with Catherine Stewart and Viv Curran doing a solid job in backing up the pair at the front, Mortonhall claimed the crown with a 5&3 victory.

Mortonhall had to dig deep to beat Broomieknowe 2&1 in the semi-finals, where Turnhouse, having already triumphed against the hosts, thumped Newbattle 8&7.

Sixteen teams competed in the event, which was played on a Kingsknowe course that was “looking absolutely fantastic”.
