Hudsons have set the early season pace in the Montrose & District Welfare League and sit top, having won 11 of their opening 12 fixtures.
Defending champions Golf Inn head up the chasing pack with only five points dropped after 11 games. New comers St Cyrus will be delighted with their showing thus far with eight wins in their opening 12 games taking them into third.
At the other end of the table, Bervie’s recent improvement has seen them climb seven points clear of pointless Marykirk at the bottom. Lochside sit between these two sides with six points from their opening 11 games.
Fordoun Galaxy claimed the first silverware of the season with their win over Hillside in an entertaining Howdens League Cup final.
The two sides will meet again in the semi final of the Piggins cup whilst Bervie face Hudsons on the other side of the draw. The Matrix Cup and the Review cup are yet to get underway whilst several clubs retain an interest in the Scottish cups.
