It started of as a dull rather wet morning but cleared up as the day went on to some nice sunshine in the afternoon.

Despite the girls very best efforts against Aberdeenshire and winning 3/1 in the morning we lost overall by 31/2 to 51/2.

Our first win of the day beating Aberdeen 6&5. From the left caddy Kirsten Blackwood,President Tracy Laughland, Kate McIntosh, Hannah Scott and caddy Moyra Statham                                                                                                                                                          

 Louise Fraser and Karen Ferguson followed with good win at the 14th.

Karen Marshall and Wendy Nicholson kept fighting but eventually lost 3/1.

The afternoon turned into some tough nail biting matches as Aberdeen slowly edged ahead. Karen Ferguson gave us our only win of the afternoon with  some inspired golf and Hannah fought to the very end to half her match.

Everyone was feeling a bit despondent at the end of the day but we are Midlothian and we do not give up so look out Dumfriesshire because we will come out fighting tomorrow.
