Unfortunately Craigmillar Park failed to fulfil a recent fixture against Brunsfield Links even with a weakeded or reduced team and as such have resigned from the League. 

The Section C results have been amended to reflect this and the MVP details adjusted also. 


All Sections are still competetive to the 1st three places and with only two progressing to the knockout stages it is going to be an exciting finish. The weather has held out for most of the matches over the past couple of weeks and fingers crossed this will continue and all matches can complete on time. 


MVP details remain tight, Alan Reoch (Craigilaw) currently on 30 points but being chased by Jack McVey (Turnhouse) and Craig Davidson Craigielaw) but now also Stuart MacLaren (Bruntsfield Links), the 2018 MVP,  due to the MVP adjustment factor for teams with only 5 teams.  All 'might' have 35 points at completion of the League stages.  Obviously all these players teams have to progress in the knockout stages to get the opportunity earn more points. 


Big matches this week :

Section A : Turnhouse v Murrayfield a clash of 2nd and 3rd places currently on same points

Section B : Broomieknowe  v Musselburgh a clash of 1st and 3rd place 

Section C : Glencorse v  Bruntsfield Links a clash of 2nd and 3rd Place 

Section D : all teams have matches and several teams could end on the same points so match points difference will be crucial   

All leagues continue to be closely contested and with in general the top 3 teams all within a couple of points of each other with some teams having games in hand, mainly  caused by bad weather and dates having moved out for rescheduling. This is going to another exciting finish to the sections and QTR final qualifications. 

MVP  : Allan Reoch maintains his lead on 30 points from  fellow Craigielaw team mate Craig Davidson and Turnhouse's Jack McVey who are the top challengers at the moment on 25 points.  Please check the MVP table to geta fuller summary.  

I have had a few enquiries as to later stage dates and these are shown on the Scoresheets tab AAInfo ==> https://www.edinburghgolfleague.com/scorecards/2019.html as well as the Week Layout details we had 10 iterations of back in 2018.  

Summary is QTR finals to be played by 14th July, Semi Finals on 25th August and Final on 15th September.  The Qtr final dates have some leeway but given neutral venues for Semi and Final it will need to have  a bit of room in case of a requirment to change venues and get this organised.  

Parish notices: 

This week is a VERY busy week for matches with five having taken place on Monday the 1st and a further three on Tuesday. the 2nd.   Can I please asks again that ALL results are sent after the match so I can complete and get an update out, otherwise the League tables 'may' look incorrect as I wait on late entries from previous matches.  For Monday and Tuesday there have been 16 match results and 128 MVP details to enter, not a  5 min job. So please send details ASAP so I can keep on top of this as the season moves to a crucial stage and teams want up to date correct information.  

There are still a few matches which have been delayed that have not sent in the new rearanged dates, can those who have rescheduled dates please check and get back to me if the dates have not been provided or shown correctly on the Matches and results page. 

 Next update Friday evening / Sat depending on results being provided.  I will give priority to having League tables updates ahead of MVP entries to get a good turnaround time. 

Firstly apologies to all regarding the error in points difference 'sorting' last week, my haste to get away for a few days, however it was very gratifying to know that some people actually read the updates. 

I have given myself a good scolding and the errors have been amended whilst adding the results of the last 2 matches played.  

All leagues remain really competetive up to the top 3 teams, in the main, especially Section B with 3 teams all tied on Match points and seperated only by the Points  (for/against) difference.  

MVP is still being led by Allan Reaoch (Craigielaw) by 1.5 points from Jack McVey (Turnhouse) and Jaimie McIntosh (Broomieknowe).  

The next update will not be until at least Saturday 29th June, as I will be away again for a few days. Should anything urgent come up please call me or email my normal email address.  

As another reminder can Captains please ensure Martin Dempster (This email address is being protected from spambots.
