  • Melrose are [league] champions – and worthy ones at that. Powerful upfront against Heriots – and slick behind. “We set out to put in a decent performance and win the league, and we did that today,” was how Robert Chrystie saw it – no more, no less – but with bigger fish still left to fry.




  • Millbrae bid fond farewell to three fine club men in Calum Forrester, George Hunter and Scott Sutherland in what was a case of ‘job done’ for Ayr against Hawick. Hardly a vintage performance but a real cracker of a game – and the play-offs now surely well within their grasp.
