After a very successful bonding session the night before the team were determined to do well on day 3. Clara and Grace lead out the team in the foursomes and made a great pairing winning their match 3 and 1. Hazel and Sue just lost out on the 18th so we went into the singles trailing by one.

In the afternoon session Clara and Grace again lead us out and their victories gave the team a great start.

Kay had a great victory against Karen Marshall a real captain’s performance.

Jill and Sue both lost to very strong opponents so all was resting on the last match between Dianne and Karen Ferguson-Snedden. They went onto the 18th tee with Dianne one up. Dianne played the hole well and with her opponent finding the rough won her game and the match.

The team did really well to recover from the first day’s loss against Fife to finish second overall. All credit must go to them, their caddies and all who played a part but especially Jenni who lead us magnificently.

Congratulations to Fife and their captain Lorna Bennett on their victory in the East Division Jamboree. Fife go on to play in the Scottish Finals versus the North, West & South Divisions, to be held at Peebles Golf Club from Friday 30th August – Sunday 1st  September inclusive, where they will all fight out to be crowned Scottish Champions. We wish them luck at that event.

On a very blustery day East Lothian struggled against a Fife side containing four Ladybank members whose experience of the course proved decisive. There were some great matches and some excellent comebacks in particular Clara Young coming back from 3 down to win, Kay Lannin’s 3 and 2 victory and Jill McNicoll coming back to take her opponent to the 18th.

Our consolation prize was at the buffet where we managed to beat Fife to the puddings.

Good luck to all our players.
