Not so simple for Simon Fairburh in Lothians junior defence

Craigielaw's Simon Fairburn, the defending champion, just scraped into the match-play phase of the Lothians Junior Championship, sponsored by Golf Finance, at the Braids.
His rounds of 78 and 71 at the Capital course yesterday saw him qualify with nothing to spare in tomorrow night's opening round Fairburn will take on Euan Mackay of Torphin Hill.Bathgate's Louis Gaughan, who secured top seeding with rounds of 69 and 68, faces The Glen's Euan Bowden, who had rounds of 71 and 76.
Greenburn's Blair Todd qualified in second spot and his opening opponent will be Fraser Thain of West Linton.
Anthony Blaney, Liberton's rising star, safely made it through, as did his clubmate Ross Munro and Lee Morgan of Newbattle.
However, Craigmillar Park's Willem Kerr missed out by a shot and Greg Smail, the Craigielaw junior captain, took two shots too many over the 36 holes.
Others who failed to qualify included Kingsknowe's Graeme Duncan, a member of the Lothians' side for this weekend's Scottish boys team championship at Peebles, and Euan Paterson of Bruntsfield Links.

5pm Michael Bacigalupo (Longniddry) v Alexander Wilson (Gullane)
