Congratulations to the Scottish Vets Team

Many Congratulations to the Scottish Vets Team which defeated the Irish Senior Ladies at Troon Portland on Sunday and Monday to win the Mary McKenna Trophy The Scottish Vets lead by 2 points after the first day. The match finished 6.5 to 5.5 . 
The following special mention was made of Lanarkshire member, Lesley Lloyd, by the Scottish Captain, Ellie Whyte,
Over the two days, everyone played a vital part in this win but it would be remiss of us not to mention that Lesley halved her match after being 2 down with 2 to play, against Carol, who is considered one of the strongest Irish players. So if you spend your time trying to hit the ball further - stop now and practise your short game. Lesley’s accuracy round the greens was key.
