Scotland showed true grit to come from behind to beat Ireland 5-4 on the opening day of the women's home internationals at bright and breezy Irvine Golf Club, Ayrshire today
The bonus for skipper Lesley Nicholson's squad was that Wales walloped England 7-2 in the other match.
"The girls put me through it today but they got there in the end," said Lesley.
"I'm delighted. They did so well to turn it around from what could have been a losing position."
Scotland made up their one-point foursomes deficit by winning the first two singles to finish against Ireland.

West of Scotland Players did well today with Pamela Pretswell winning both her foursomes and singles ties. Renfrewshire's Megan Briggs played very well in the morning with an under form Kylie Walker. Megan was not selected for the singles in the afternoon,however Kylie was and fortunately got her game back together in afternoon singles to bring in the winning result. --- WELL DONE TO YOU ALL
