Swade win over rivals

Needing to avoid a hat-trick of losses Lasswade, made the short trip down the A1 to take on old friends and, since last season division rivals, Haddington, who are struggling this season having managed just one point from four games - a home draw against Hawick YM.

Injuries continue to be a significant factor in selection with Brown sidelined this week together with Turnbull but these were offset by O’Riordan’s return at No 8 and Donald Hearn coming back after several months though initially on the bench.

The final score was Haddington 16 - Lasswade 26 see this week’s Advertiser for the match report.

This Saturday Morgan Academy are at Hawthornden. The Dundee-based side are at the bottom of the table and still to win a point (kick-off 3pm).
