The article below from the Electronic Berwickshire was sent to me by a blogee from Coldstream-he was struck by the inclusion of 'exciting' and 'Hutton' in the same sentence. He should know that the Hutton Carpet Bowling team is the toast of (most of) Berwickshire and always up in the top rankings. Gordon were lucky to scrape through on this occasion but 'our day will come' as the Merse branch of the Provos might put it if they were n't all abroad training Gorillas in revolutionary activities and brushing up on their spelling. In this case substitute 'tragic' for 'exciting' Gordon win title by just one shot
GORDON beat Hutton by one shot in an exciting Berwickshire
