Congratulations to the Cuthbertson Cup Team who were triumphant for the 4th successive year in winning the Inter-Counties’ Trophy. The team of Gabrielle Macdonald, Kate McIntosh, Gillian Simpson and Rachael Watton (captain), together with reserve Hannah Scott is picture above.
On the most glorious day of 2009, the girls got off to a flying start beating Stirling and Clackmannanshire 4-0 in the morning. The golf was something special and all played superbly well. Birdies were flying about all over the place as the pin was being attacked from each and every angle. It was a real treat to watch some wonderful golf.
The morning results were as follows:
Rachael Watton beat Helen Goodwin 7/5
Gillian Simpson beat Alsion Goodwin 2/1
Gabrielle Macdonald beat Alexis Hutton 5/4
Kate McIntosh beat Jordynn Laird 8/6
In the other match, Fife beat East Lothian by 2.5-1.5 to set up a final between Midlothian and Fife. The afternoon saw the shorts come out and more of the same from the morning. The number of spectators grew and all enjoyed the excitement that the girls gave to us. The match ended in a win for Midlothian by 3 games to 1.
The afternoon results were as follows:
Rachael beat Rachael Hanlon 6/5
Gillian beat Sam Munro 4/3
Gabrielle beat Nicola Taylor 6/4
Kate lost to Lauren Whyte 3/2
The jubilation by the team on the way back to the clubhouse was wonderful. It was great to see not only the support they offered to each other, but the camaraderie that was present between all of the players.
Well done to all of the girls. They produced a great spectacle that was immensely enjoyed by all who were present and a great result!
Congratulations to you all!
The Cuthbertson Cup Team do it again!
