Nairn v Cruden Bay in Senior Northern Counties Cup Final at Elgin

Tomorrow (FRIDAY) morning's Senior Northern Counties Cup Final at Elgin Golf Club will be an East v West affair, featuring Cruden Bay, who have never won this competition for over-55s, and Nairn, winners of the title in 2016.
In the morning quarter-finals Deeside beat the holders, Murcar Links, by one hole with the first pairing of Ally Fiddes, Mike Lornie (Murcar Links) and Deeside's Keith Ingram and Alan Ross having seven birdies between them and finishing all square.
But the Bieldside quartet lost their afternoon semi-final by four holes to Cruden Bay who beat host club Elgin in the morning by two holes despite finishing three down in the lead-off tie.
The second string of Duff House Royal 1 had a 5ft putt to win their quarter-final against Royal Aberdeen but  missed it and the next one too. A costly three putts.
Nairn's second-string pairing of Walter Morris and Patrick Tomisson were their match-winners in both the quarter-finals and semi-finals.
Nairn beat Inverness 2  by three  holes with Morris and Tomisson providing the winning margin in the second tie.
In the semi-finals Nairn beat Royal Aberdeen by two holes, thanks to Morris and Tomisson finishing three up.
The final will tee off at 9.15am.
