Lasswade seal final spot

East Kilbride 15

Lasswade 26

Lasswade had to work for the right to seek to renew their tenure of the National Shield at the Final at Murrayfield on April 16.

Planning for their second consecutive visit to the Big Pitch has already started, and the Hawthornden squad will not let the trophy go easily.

Their opponents will be the winners of Hawick YM v Kilmarnock to be played this Saturday with the Borderers being the more likely of the two National 2 sides, having already won the Division with an unblemished record so far. For full story, see The Advertiser, out now.
