West Vets lose out to Midlands

Midlothian and West Vets Teams
The West Vets Team
The Mid West Trophy match was played in perfect summer conditions on the very attractive Schawpark course in Alloa
West was represented by Carol Fell, Jennifer Graham, Elinor Grant, Elspeth Dewar, Sandra Gilchrist, Anne Mackellar and Sheila Shaw.
Midlands were represented by Jean Bald, Sheila Travers, Liz Cunningham, Eva Muller-Allan, Fiona Campbell, Fiona Glass and Danuta McLachlan.

It was a tight match producing many good games and culminating in a nailbiting finish with everyone gathered round for the last putt on the last green..
Sadly West lost by 4 games to 3. but all credit to Midlands for their fine play. Although it was a home game for their team only their Captain Sheila Travers was a member of Alloa.
Many thanks to Sheila and her players for their friendly welcome and hospitality today. We were sorry to leave the Mid West Trophy behind but have already vowed to try harder next year.
