West Vets v Midlands Vets - June 6th

The West Vets team played their annual match with Midlands Vets at Alloa Golf Club today. The course is surrounded by beautiful trees, not too flat but sitting high up with lovely views of the surrounding hills. We had four seasons of weather during the match with the afternoon finishing in a little warm sunshine.

The matches were all closely contested and I am delighted to report that the team retained the Mid West Trophy by the very close margin of 4 matches to 3. We were extremely well looked after, coffee and bacon rolls on arrival and a lovely meal at the end of the day.

Our thanks go to Emma Wilson, Midlands captain, who organised the day beautifully and to the Club Captain of Alloa, Sheila Travers, who played in the Midlands team, for her warm welcome to the Club. It is always a pleasure to be part of the interdistrict matches which are always played in such good spirit and the friendships are enjoyed by both teams.

Enid Young lost to Winifred MacCallum
Maureen Mitchell lost to Joan Ritchie
Cathy Morton lost to Sheila Travers
Marion Stewart beat Nan Morrison
Jennifer Graham beat Moira Begbie
Mo Neilson beat Liz Fertacz
Anne Aitken beat Helen Campbell

Well done to the team - very proud of you all!
