We are delighted to announce that the Junior Training Squad for 2010 is:
Hannah Scott (Broomieknowe), Kirsty Simpson (Murrayfield), Heather Tumblety (Liberton), Katherine Fisher (Baberton), Heather Laing (Glencorse), Jane Finlay (New Swanston) and Rebecca Trimble (Murrayfield).
We have a very different Squad this year with Kate McIntosh (Broomieknowe) having moved into the main squad, Natasha Shivji (Ratho Park) having moved out of the Junior section, Samantha Lamb (Glencorse) having been forced to give up golf due to an injury and both Isobel Hinds (Liberton) and Sally Naysmith (Dalmahoy) having decided to concentrate on their school studies. However, we are delighted to welcome four newcomers into the Squad, namely Katherine, Heather Laing, Jane and Rebecca. We hope that they enjoy all that is on offer and look forward to their participation.
This year the Squad has been offered coaching with Mark Berrie at the Braids Driving Range in January, February and March, as well as 9 holes with Mark giving some on course advice. Practice matches have been arranged with juniors from the Borders and Lanarkshire Counties and the squad will also take part in a Rules evening with the main squad organised by our rules’ gurus, Vice-Captain Mary Richardson and Selector Linda Caine.
Karen Marshall has again agreed to oversee the Junior Training Squad and we hope that the girls will benefit from her vast experience in the golfing world.
Good luck to you all in 2010 and we hope that you enjoy your year in the Junior Training Squad.
