A home win over Kilspindie before the Christmas break kept John Hall’s team out in front, but next up is a tough test away against a resurgent Longniddry.

North Berwick kept up the pressure by winning at home against Longniddry while defending champions Gullane are also still in the title race.

They bounced back from defeat in their previous outing to win at Haddington and have home matches to come against both North Berwick and Royal Musselburgh.
