Mikhaila finds Mick to share in her celebrations!
What a fabulous week it has been with Midlothian winning the East Division Inter-County Matches in such style in our Centenary year. The team played superbly well in all of their matches and the support they offered to each other was absolutely fantastic. It was great to see and be part of and we could have asked for nothing more from the girls. Their commitment was no less than 110% and they stepped up to the mark when asked. The atmosphere on the course, in the clubhouse and back at the hotel was relaxed, happy and electric.

Having returned from Falkirk ecstatic but exhausted, I have now regained a little bit of energy and have started turning my thoughts towards the County Finals in September. But before I get on to them, I would like to say a few thank yous.

First of all to the Ladies’ Golf Shop for the T-shirts you very kindly sponsored. The girls were all delighted to have some “new kit” and looked fabulous. They looked smart and ready to take on whatever was going to be thrown at them – how could they fail? Secondly, to all of the members who made the trip over to Falkirk to support the girls and/or offer their caddying services and to all those who weren’t able to be there but kept in touch through text messages. Your continued commitment to the County team is very much appreciated by all concerned. Thirdly to all the back room team – even spotty Linda who was unable to travel over due to an outbreak of chicken pox on the Thursday night. It is great to have such spirit behind the scenes and Linda on the other end of text messages! Your help and calming abilities were fantastic. The number of times I turned to do something to find that one of you had just beaten me to it was unbelievable. Finally, to the actual Team, what can I say? You all played your hearts out from beginning to end. There was absolutely no let up and you battled away to come up with the goods. Let’s do it again in September!!!

Now to the County Finals! As you may be aware they are being held at Baberton Golf Club from Friday 18th – Sunday 20th September. Midlothian is joined by Galloway from the south, Renfrewshire from the west and Northern Counties from, believe it or not, the north. Why not put the dates in your diaries now and come along to support your team? It is absolutely wonderful golf to watch and a great atmosphere to get caught up in. It would be great to see you and I know the team would really appreciate the support. The draw for the finals is:

Day 1: Galloway v Midlothian; Renfrewshire v Northern Counties
Day 2: Midlothian v Renfrewshire; Galloway v Northern Counties
Day 3: Renfrewshire v Galloway; Northern Counties v Midlothian
