Kirktonhill Senior Ladies have secured promotion after remaining unbeaten in all of their fixtures this season.

Going into their final match against Woodend 3, they needed three points to leapfrog over David Lloyd Hamilton 4 to take the title.

First couple Karen Haggarty and Trish Cameron continued their impressive form this season, winning their three sets 6-3, 6-2, 6-2, thereby ensuring their 100 per cent sets record throughout all of their matches.

However, it proved to be a tougher challenge for Anna Currie and Fiona MacDonald on court two.

They looked comfortable in the first set, easing to a 6-1 win before their Woodend opponents came back strongly to win the second.

This gave Anna and Fiona the push they needed to step up their play and after some well contested rallies, they managed to take the third set 6-3.

With the final match score of 5-1 to Kirktonhill, the team knew that they had done enough to win the division and can now look forward to playing at a higher level next season.

Elsewhere, junior tennis at the club reached its climax at the weekend with two major trophies up for grabs.

The first to take place was the annual Mackechnie Cup Tournament for youngsters aged 10 and under and after some round-robin matches it was Imogen Mooney who played Aaron Barbour in the final.

She is the first girl to win the trophy and was delighted to have it presented to her by Colin Mackechnie.

The Junior Championship for under 18s also delivered a fine mix of matches.

In the semi-finals Caitlin Darroch played well to beat Andrew Miller and Matthew Wilson proved to be too strong for Lewis Boal.

The final was decided by the first player to win nine games.

Both Caitlin and Matthew started cautiously and matched each other game for game. However, with the match standing at 5-5 it was Matthew who pulled ahead and took the title 9-5.
