It was a close run contest on the new ice at Murrayfield this year with both provinces winning two games (and losing two games). The scores on ice saw a two shot leading margin for East Lothian BUT we were given a 2 shot penalty for having a player arrive late. The final adjusted scores saw East Lothian 27, Borders 27.
The Borders retain the trophy for another year.
NB Last year East Lothian was penalised for being one player short, which also had a bearing on the destination of the trophy. ALL clubs should ensure that their players turn up in plenty of time and to allow for traffic.
