Robin Templeton reports on the ‘A’ Team’s final match of the season:

The last match of the season was icing on the cake as Glasgow Montrose eased past the bottom club East Kilbride B 4.5 – 1.5. Montrose had to give up a default on bottom board but otherwise there were easy wins for Edd,  Sam, Bahlool and David. I struggled on top board to hold the draw.
