Young Guns keep Midlothian hopes alive


Fantastic performances by the whole team, and Emily Dalgetty and Kate McIntosh in particular (they have both won 4 matches out of 4), resulted in a 5-4 victory over Renfrewshire today.  In true Midlothian style the girls put in a massive effort to keep us in with a fighting chance, depending on the Aberdeenshire - Renfrewshire result tomorrow. Also bringing up the rear in the singles this afternoon, the experienced and unflappable Wendy Nicholson and Karen Marshall secured the victory.
