L to R:Caitlin McCartney (Caldwell) Gillian Henderson (Whitecraigs) 
Niamh Kinney (Erskine) Alison Macnab (Kilmacolm) 
Zara Thomson (Williamwood) Amy Morris (Williamwood)

Well done to D&A who were the overall winners. A match which was postponed in June due to heavy rain and strong winds was rescheduled for the 18th October and was played in wonderful conditions on a perfect Autumn day. 
 A team of 6 players enjoyed the course at Clydebank and District Golf Club. D&A had a last minute call off and fielded a team of 5. 
Both teams had 2 beginners who played a 9 hole match. Zara Thomson and Amy Morris (both Williamwood GC) played very well and enjoyed their debut! 
Zara's match was very close and she was unlucky to lose on the 9th green. Amy also had a very close match and lost 3/2 . 
A good experience for the young girls and it was great to see lots of good golf. Our more experienced players played 18 holes. 
Niamh Kinney played a great round of golf and although down throughout the match continually fought back to unfortunately loose on the 18th. 
Alison Macnab had a great game with terrific shots and won 5/3. Due to D&A being 1 player short, Gillian Henderson and Cailtin McCartney (also making her debut) played the same opponent but for 9 holes each! Gillian narrowly lost on the front 9 but Caitlin won the back 9. The match was played in great spirit and the girls all enjoyed the day. 
Thanks go to Jenny Todd (D&A Junior Secretary) for arranging the match and the Clydebank and District Golf Club for courtesy of their course.
