With Eilidh Briggs having been selected for the senior team this year, there are a few new names in our Junior Team

Catherine Conejo-Williamwood
Lesley Cosh-Cowglen
Alison Howie-Whitecraigs
Alyson McKechin-Elderslie
Natasha Qayum-Ranfurly Castle
Nicky Wilson-Whitecraigs
Saorcha Warren-Eastwood-reserve

We are beginning our countdown to June 18th with a practice and meeting at MCGA on May 31st.The Kennedy Salver has a new format this year which involves foursomes and singles in a round-robin format against every other county-all in one day!

On June 3rd, we are playing a “friendly” match at Cambuslang GC against Lanarkshire. We are hoping to play 8 aside that day so Heather Conejo and Heather Howie are also playing to gain some experience for future years.

The following weekend, some of the girls will have a practice round at Cowglen, others on the Tuesday, then a course walk round Cowglen with Dorothy Yates as our expert guideon the Wednesday! There is so much golf on for the girls just now, never mind exams, hockey, athletics, tennis,Duke of Edinburgh trips etc.

I will be telephoning our “volunteers” to organise duties for the 18th over the next couple of weeks and am grateful for all their willingness.

I hope to report another triumph for the girls in a few weeks time.
