Title holder Eilidh Briggs (Kilmacolm)  won both her ties today in convincing manner to progress through to the semi final stages of the County Championship at Pollok Golf Club today.

In the morning she won by 8&7 against Elaine Robb (Milngavie) and in the afternoon, and with pretty tough weather conditions, Shirley Back (Gleddoch) had the unenviable task of playing the "in form" Eilidh  and lost 7&6.

The remaining 3 games were all very close with two of the games going to the 18th: Julie Wilson (Williamwood) lost to Denise Cowan (Ranfurly Castle); and Alyson McGinnigle (Cowglen) lost to Liz Stewart (Greenburn). Taking 19 holes to determine their outcome the Scottish Vets team mates Gillian Kyle (East Renfrewshire) eventually beat Donna Jackson (Troon Ladies).
