Turnhouse make it ten out of ten in Edinburgh Summer League

Have your say

Turnhouse are flying high heading into the Clarity Edinburgh Summer League quarter-finals after becoming the first team to qualify with a 100 per cent record.

Moray Hanson’s team made it 10 wins out of 10 with victory at the Merchants and now have a home tie against Craigmillar Park in the last eight.

“After narrowly getting beat in the semi-final last year by the eventual winners (Royal Burgess), we are hoping to build on that experience,” said Hanson. “Our 100 per cent record in the section was a tremendous achievement and I don’t think it has been done by the club before, so great credit is due to all of those involved.

“Like all the other teams who have qualified, Craigmillar Park are obviously a very good team so we are expecting a tough game but looking forward to it very much.”

Duddingston, last year’s beaten finalists, face a trip to 2014 winners Bruntsfield Links; Royal Burgess travel to Ratho Park and Longniddry entertain Baberton.
