A SIXTH victory from nine tournaments so far in this year’s K7 series at Selkirk tomorrow [Saturday] will ensure that Watsonians finish top of the heap, even before next week’s finale at Jed-Forest’s Riverside Park base.
But they are being hunted down by Melrose, who have had to field development teams in a number of tournaments this Spring due to their 15-aside commitments, but won back-to-back titles at Kelso and Earlston when back to full strength last weekend to close the gap at the top of the table to just nine points.
The two sides are in the same half of the draw at Philiphaugh meaning that they will meet each other in the semi-final if they don’t come a cropper before then. Watsonians, however, will have to overcome Jed-Forest – the only other team to have won a tournament in this series and who are back to full strength now that their National League One campaign has finally drawn to a conclusion – in the first round, so they are going to have to hit the ground running.
The actions starts at 2pm.
