Renfrewshire Girls are Runners Up in the Kennedy Salver

The 2007 Kennedy Salver Team
Renfrewshire girls were runners-up to Ayrshire yesterday at Cowglen GC in the Kennedy Salver. With the new format of foursomes in the morning then singles in the afternoon against all 3 other counties, it was very close and the last 2 games on the course decided the overall result! The Renfrewshire girls had tremendous team spirit, were a credit to their Clubs on and off the course and seemed to enjoy their day.

Results Winners Ayrshire 7 pts
R-up Renfrewshire 5.5pts
3rd Dumbartonshire & Argyll 3.5 pts
4th Lanarkshire 2 pts

Many thanks to all the ladies who came to support the girls and help me with the day-Extra special thanks to Beth and Dorothy Yates who were there ALL day and without whom I would not have coped!! Also, thank you to all the girls who practised so hard and to their parents for all their support.- it's much appreciated.
Thanks also go to Cowglen GC for courtesy of their course and clubhouse on Monday. I don't know if the members knew what had hit them on a normally quiet day of the week!
