Congratulations to Biggar who amassed a respectable 38 points to secure 5th place and retain their position in this very competitive league for the 4th season running. Tinto did not fare so well in its 1st season in Division 1, amassing 26 points, the same as East Kilbride. As both teams had won/lost the same number of matches, the League had to examine aggregate match points. Unfortunately East Kilbride had 50 more points which is equivalent to 2/3 tricks which over 144 hands in 6 matches, it could hardly have been closer.
