They beat Dalmahoy 7 and 6 in the final at Craigmillar Park, where Steven Armstrong and Graham Robertson, survivors from last year’s winning team at Prestonfield, were joined by Olly McCrone and Scott Young.

Armstrong and McCrone were always in control up against Dougie Hunter and Robert Carson in the top match, while Robertson and Young recovered from a slow start to eventually gain the upper-hand against David Marshall and Kevin Messer.

Ironically, both Marshall and Messer were Turnhouse members last year before returning to Dalmahoy. In fact, Marshall was in the title-winning team at Prestonfield.

In the semi-finals, Turnhouse thumped Bruntsfield Links 11 and 10 while Dalmahoy won 8 and 7 in their “derby” clash with Ratho Park.
