Gosford 15410 Rats 13160

Dealt at table (quite impressively it must be said) so no hand records :o(

It works out as a 6 AMP defeat.

Linlithgow 20000 Rats 14420 (Cup 2nd round)

Tuesday 19 November 2019

After a good first half with not much in it, our Division 1 opps did better “with the cards” in the second half and it ended up a bit harsh.

Bye into 2nd round, where we face an Away Match at either Linlithgow or Colinton Castle presumably in November.  Oh well, at least we get a +2000 handicap!  The slightly bad news is that as last team drawn out of the hat we will be the Away team in every single match all the way to the final.


Rats win promotion to the 2nd Tier (aka Ya Beauty!!!)

With Renaissance taking care of our last rivals for the promotion spot last night, we have confirmation of our best ever finish as runners up in League Division Three . . .

. . . so next season we will be taking our long overdue spot in the ranks of Division Two :o) alongside Renaissance, Gosford, Livingston, Marmion B, Waverley, Pentland, Scramblers, Falcon plus two coming down from the top league. This one is too tight to call but is certainly possible that Pied Pipers will be joining us in Division 2 (have we finally caught up with them?!) though if they beat Linlithgow, Colinton Castle and Dunfermline A may be the unlucky losers.


Rats 15740 Peebles A 16030

This unfortunately a “narrow defeat” and gives us just the 1 point (and -1 AMP). However it does take us over the 20 point mark! Not quite sure of 2nd yet, but a lot better than 19.
