    With thanks to for the results.

    Just like to say congratulations to all at Newtongrange. You did what I have been asking for a while and let your playing do the talking. Didn't catch your performance as I had another engagement at Celtic Park but from what I hear you were easy winners today, unlike the Celtic. Go down to Harrogate and bring home the bacon.

    Also congrats to Newmilns and Galston. I have been following your progress since I heard you at the borders in 2002 and the Fife in 2003 and I'm pleased that you earned that trip to Harrogate and promotion to the Championship Section.

    Well done everyone.

    I'm not going to talk about what happened when our band was playing since there's nothing that can be done about it now. Needless to say we are disappointed to be relegated to 2nd Section.

    These things happen... :?

    I think it was closer to paint-stripper or was that what I was drinking.

    A great day had by all yesterday but I think it was a mistake to have a job interview this morning.

    Nope it was pints of heavy all the way with a few nips of Glenmorangie and whatever Grant filled the trophy up with for good measure.

    We repeated the same process when we got back to The Dean. I couldn't have even said the word 'Cinzano' by that stage let alone drunk one. Yuck.

    Just noticed your Avatar Stevie - I'll have to get a new one (especially as I nicked my current one from the band website)

    I do believe that was large amounts of vodka with a hint of lemonade...

    Thanks for sharing though!
