The countdown is under way for the 120th Dispatch Trophy at the Braids. Run by Edinburgh Leisure, in partnership with the Edinburgh Evening News, for the third year running, the event is sponsored by Golfclubs4cash, the Midlothian-based company that sells second-hand equipment.

The historic team tournament begins on 18 May, and is held over five days, running through until Saturday, 25 May 2019.

Mortonhall are the defending champions, having triumphed at the first attempt with a two-hole win over Tantallon 2 in the final last May.
