 L to R -back - Lesley Lloyd, Sheena Wood, Gillian Kyle, Lorna McKinlay
Front - Frances Millar, Lorna Bennett (Captain)  and Fiona deVries

 Having beaten Iceland 4.5 - 0.5 and Finland 4 - 1 Scotland seniors kept up their good play in the match play stages by beating Italy 4 - 1 in the final of the Flight 2 Group. 

After what was a disappointed qualifying 1st round Scotland finished in 10th place after the 2 qualifying rounds on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week -- 1 behind Italy in 9th place. 
  
However the matchplay stages all 6 players in the team were unbeaten in the matchplay games over the last 3 days which was a terrific effort by all. 

Many congrats go West Vet Lesley Lloyd and to Gillian Kyle who was also the top player for Scotland in the qualifying rounds.

HUNT FOR THE MISSING TROPHY !

We have presently lost track of the Patrick Rosebowl, won by Alex Glennie at Blairgowrie last September. 
After engraving work, it was delivered to Kilmarnock Barassie G.C. in November after our AGM at Cowglen. 
However then the trail goes cold, even though it is a sizeable trophy in a large brown cardboard box. There is also a voucher for Alex attached or in the box. 
If anyone can shed any light on its whereabouts, we would be most grateful.

 It was truly a wonderful day and the ladies enjoyed Kilmalcolm, which considering the downpours we had the previous day was still in great condition.
The East players although defeated, loved the course and had a lovely meal after the match. Thanks to Kilmalcolm G C, we were very well looked after.
