The first team completed their Henderson Vase mixed doubles matches on Monday night with a defeat at home to unbeaten Scone.
The team was Graham Crabb/Erin Moir, Liam Curry/Ashley Gorman and Kevin Small/Jane O’Mara. Although there were several close sets only Liam and Ashley managed to win a set – the match being over in two rounds with Scone winning 5.5 points to 0.5.
Despite this, Arbroath will be promoted back to the First Division next season after finishing third – which is a fine achievement.
Also promoted are the second team whose fixtures finished last week . They will be promoted from Division Four after finishing second in Division Three.
The third team can make it a hat-trick for Arbroath if they win their home Fifth Division match against 2nd Games Club on Thursday. They are currently lying in third place – with three matches to go – needing just one win to ensure promotion.
