MELROSE capped a memorable season on Saturday by earning promotion from East of Scotland Division Five as champions.

The Huntlyburn side beat Carlton Fourths by 96 runs at Inverleith Park to secure the top spot.

Sharief Hosny's 55 runs helped the visitors reach 144 from their 40 overs.

And it was Hosny's four wickets, for the loss of only five runs, which held Carlton to just 48 all out in response.

Despite not having a game, Hawick & Wilton also go up from Division Four as champions.

A 62-runs victory over Largo at The Green saw St Boswells survive in Division Two.

Steve Broom's 72 helped the Bossie to 146 for six.

Both Craig McNeil, for 25 runs, and Scott Turnbull, for the loss of 12 runs, took four wickets each as Largo were held to 84 all out.

Selkirk also came good in a similar scenario at Philiphaugh to survive in Division Three.

Kenny Paterson's four for eight runs contained Glenrothes to just 54 runs.

Greg Fenton's 22 from the crease helped the Souters over the line with six wickets to spare.

Kelso finished their Championship campaign in third after a final day four wickets win over Marchmont at Shedden Park.

But Gala, who were already relegated, lost by 156 runs at Freuchie to end a miserable season.

A 10-wicket defeat for Peebles County by Watsonians Thirds at Whitestone Park left them in fourth in Division Five.
