In DIVISION 2, Ballochmyle have been confirmed as champions. Caprington needed to win their final home match against Ayr Belleisle by 6 – 0 to prevent Ballochmyle winning the title, but they could only manage a 4.5 – 1.5 win which meant that Ballochmyle remained on top by the narrowest of margins. 

Defeat in their final fixture also meant that Ayr Belleisle face a play off to retain their Division 2 status.
