Now that both teams have double checked the score cards, the final result can be confirmed:

Rats 14320 West Calder 13490, which translates as a full WIN (our first points ever in Division Three!), with a 2.98% margin just holding us to +3 AMPs

Worth a quick reminder to please please check your addition and make sure the opposition do as well, saves a load of hassle later!

Onwards! Upwards! A trip to Peebles on Monday 3rd November is next for the happy Rats.

10. Wednesday 11 March – Borderers (Carfraemill)
11. Wednesday 18 March – Colinton Castle (away, Braid Hills Hotel).

We have also accepted a challenge match with Pied Pipers on Thursday 2 October. We might need to top up the team with some guest stars (?) but let’s see how we get on.


Oh well (parts 1 & 2)

Dust just about settled. Rat Meal to arrange – May?

Looking ahead to next season’s renewed efforts, Division 4 travel at least looks favourable. Provisionally (based on apparent ups and down) we will have:

Carfraemill – Brave Knaves

Longniddry – Longniddry Bees

Edinburgh – Randolph, Marmion “A”, Orion, Carlton Camden, Gullane, Athenians, Comiston, Colinton Castle.

So that’s a plus. Marmion and Gullane will both be expected to come to Edinburgh since we played both away this season.


Gullane Gubbed

Gullane 11290 Rats 16160

A fine 10 AMP win out in East Lothian, BIG gains on boards 12 and 13 sealing it for us.


Camden Crushed by Cheerful Rats

More like it :o)

Rats 15310, Carlton Camden 11850, an 8 AMP gain.

Longniddry match turns out to be a disappointment


Rats 10790, Longniddry Bees 11660, which is a 3.88% loss and nothing to put in our points bankie.

Stats are here, though the 2nd half makes grim reading….
