Summer Cup 2008

Summer Cup winners – Balerno

Summer Plate winners – Livingston

Congratulations to Balerno for winning the Summer Cup for 2008 culminating in a convincing victory against Bank of Scotland in the final by 5½ - 3¾ (5½ - ½ over the board). After beating last years winners Tiger Cubs in the semi-final the Bank team also have good reason to feel pleased with their performance.

In the Plate final Livingston overcame Corstorphine 2 in a close match by 4½ - 4. Neither Balerno or Livingston have come close to winning either of our summer competitions in recent years, it is good to see different teams doing well.

The entry was 16 exactly the same as last year.
